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. 









Advanced Net Zero Energy Water and Waste Training

Professor Bahram Moshfegh is co-director of a training course in Advanced Net Zero Energy Water and Waste Training. The training builds on an holistic appraoch based on best practices to manage energy, water, and solid waste at military installations to achieve long term sustainability. The training course is supported by NATO and held between April 25–29, 2016 at the US Army Clay Kaserne, Wiesbaden, Germany. More information can be found here. (2016-04-18)

Guest editor in Energies

Associate professor Patrik Thollander is quest editor in the special Issue "Industrial Energy Efficiency" in the journal Energies (2016-03-18)

Five new PhD-students at the division

Emil Nilsson is a civil engineer in energy system and will do his PhD-studies in the project "Evaluation of borehole heat storage for high temperature industrial waste heat." Vlatko Milić will study the techno-economic potential for energy saving in buildings built before 1945, where cultural and historical value of the building needs to be considered. The project is interdisciplinary and is in collaboration with Uppsala University. Joakim Haraldsson is a civil engineer in engineering physics and will investigate the energy efficiency potentials in the Swedish aluminum industry and the opportunities to realize this potential in the value chain. Elias Andersson will study the energy efficiency potential in the Swedish industry. As this potential cannot be achieved solely with the help of technology, Elias will analyze barriers, driving forces and success factors and how they can be used to create a systematic approach to energy management. Jacob Carlander is an industry-employed doctoral student at Sankt Kors fastigheter AB, and studies sustainable urban design in the innovative Ebbepark area. Welcome to the Division of Energy Systems!
