Geothermal energy systems

Geothermal energy systems cover systems for both shallow and deep geothermal wells. Shallow geothermal boreholes, 50 - 200 m, are used as heat source or sink for heat pumping systems. Deep geothermal wells, typically 1-10 km, can retrieve heat with higher temperature. Heat with high temperature can be utilised directly, e.g. for district heating, or as a heat as source for running a heat-to-power cycle.

Hydrogen technology and energy storage

Hydrogen will be an important supplement to electricity as an energy carrier in future sustainable energy systems. In addition to being fuel for the transport sector, hydrogen will contribute to increased utilization of renewable energy sources. The need for energy storage will increase dramatically, and hydrogen will be the preferred option for large amounts of energy, and storage over longer periods.

A self-sustaining and secure energy system is one of the main pillars of future society. The energy system (generation, transmission, demand) will become more decentralised with production taking place closer to customers and involving technologies such as solar panels, fuel cells, micro-turbines, storage and combined heat and power systems.

Smart transport ICT

Transport is crucial to the society. Freight transport provides citizens and businesses with the goods, and free mobility for persons is a human right in most countries. However, transport has significant negative effects like pollution, causalities, space consumption, reduction in urban life quality, etc. ICT applied in infrastructures, vehicles, fleet management, user applications and traffic management can mitigate the negative effects and facilitate sustainable transport.
