General description

Today we are standing on the threshold of radical changes in the European and global energy systems.

As we are realizing the environmental and social consequences of the current system, we are in the need of new ways and technologies to transform to a society powered by sustainable energy.

In this course we are going to have a look at some of the ways that we can build such a system! Here at Chalmers you get the chance to have a closer look at state-of-the-art technologies in sustainable energy production. You will understand how the technologies work, how they can be applied and how they work together in the whole system - how the synergy in energy will look in the future!

Sweden is one of the countries in the world with the highest penetration of renewable energy, and at Chalmers they keep pushing the frontier. Being with us at this course you will have an outstanding opportunity to get closer with the most modern most awesome energy solutions existing nowadays.
