Welcome to the Division of Energy Systems!

The Division of Energy Systems analyzes the energy system with the aim of developing sustainable energy systems. Research is conducted within three main areas: national, regional and local energy systems, industrial energy systems and building energy systems. 









Guest Research in Japan

Maria Johansson, post doctor at the Department Energy, has been a guest researcher at the Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry in Tokyo. She has met with representatives of the Japan Iron and Steel Federation, and steel manufacturing companies JFE Steel Corporation and Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation, to learn more about how the Japanese steel industry acts in relation to energy policy instruments.

Research in collaboration with the Swedish aluminium industry

The aluminium industry includes several energy intense steps from primary aluminium production to the finished products and recycling. The division of Energy System has received funding for the research project "Increasing energy efficiency in the value chain of aluminium industries". The project is performed in cooperation with the industry organization Swedish Aluminium and industrial partners. The goal of the project is to find new opportunities for energy efficiency in tyhe companies and in their value chains. The project received 4 million SEK from the aluminium industry and the Swedish Energy Agency and last between October 2015 to May 2018 (2010-10-08)
