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. 









Thesis defence
Sandra Backlund defends her thesis "Efficient improvement of energy efficiency in small and medium- sized firms" on the 12th of December, 10.15 in hall ACAS in building A, Campus Valla, Linköping University. Faculty examiner is Professor Lars J Nilsson, Lund University and members of the examining committee are Docent Karin Andersson, Chalmers, Docent Fredrik von Malmborg, Government offices of Sweden and Anna Öhrwall Rönnbäck, Luleå University of Technology.

Energy systems in the media
Linn Liu and Patrik Thollander, researchers at Energy Systems, were interviewed by Gefle dagblad about the project “Climate neutral and competitive Gävleborg 2050”. Linn studied the building sector and among other things showed that the energy use in multi-family houses could be reduced by 50 per cent through various measures. Patrik studied the industrial sector and found that even though they are more energy efficient than industries in many other countries, there is more to do, for example introducing energy management systems.  (2014-11-24)

Research on energy efficiency
On the 10th of December, the Swedish Energy Agency will arrange an information day on energy efficiency in SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises). Several researchers from the Department of Energy Systems will present their results. (2014-10-22)
