Energy production and distribution


A significant expansion of renewable energy, storage, and sectoral integration must be developed to achieve the national carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction targets. In particular, sectoral integration with Power-to-X requires expansion with sustained electricity and distribution. Developing and ensuring a sustainable and robust electricity system is a future core challenge.

Research areas

  • Renewable energy: wind, sun, waves, tide, geothermic and hybrid plants.
  • Robust and reliable power distribution: conversion, storage and connection to heat, gas, and fuel.
  • New efficient storage technologies.
  • Management of systems with use of advanced control, AI, IoT, big data etc.
