FUTURE ENERGY CENTER

Future Energy is a seven-year research profile that started in the beginning of 2013 and is included in the Future Energy Center at Mälardalen University. The project budget is 83 million SEK, of which the Knowledge Foundation has granted 36 million SEK, the cooperating companies have contributed 32 million, and MDH provide the rest of the funding. The profile will strengthen cooperation in the Mälardalen region: these areas constitute national industries for the future which already have a strong base today in the region, and there is also a large commercial interest.

 

TILOS

TILOS is a multinational European demonstration and research project with 15 participating enterprises and institutes from 7 European countries (DE, FR, EL, UK, SE, IT, ES). TILOS project aims to demonstrate the potential of local scale energy storage to serve a multi-purpose role within an island micro grid that is in communication with a main electricity grid. The project aims to demonstrate the large-scale RES penetration through an optimum integration of hybrid-RES (Renewable Energy System) (wind and PV) power station, advanced battery storage, distributed, domestic heat storage, and DSM equipment. The project aim will be accomplished by developing and operating an integrated, smart micro grid on the island of Tilos (located at the south-eastern part of the Aegean Sea and being interconnected to a bigger, island-complex electricity system). The picture below shows the multi-perspective approach of TILOS project and the roadmap to market uptake.

 

SOLAR GRASS

Solar Grass was a project funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) about demonstration and scale up of photovoltaic (PV) solar water pumping technology and system for the conservation of grassland and farmland in China.

 

The original collaboration consortium is made of universities, R&D and engineering institutions, training organizations and end-users/industrial partners, including:

1. Royal Institute of Technology (KTH)

2. Mälardalen University (MDH)

3. Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA)

4. Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research (IWHR)

5. National Centre for Efficient Irrigation Technology (NCERTR)

6. Welfine Science & Technology Development Co. Ltd

7. Xinjiang Hongfan Biotech Co. Ltd

8. Xinjiang Jinyang Science & Technology Co. Ltd

This project is to integrate renewable energies and storage technologies into residential, office and industry buildings. The study will also investigate how existing district heating networks can be operated in an optimal way considering the integration of renewables and storage system at the end-users.

 

This project is conducted with the real estate building companies, Wallenstam AB and Castellum (Aspholmen) AB, and the energy providers Mälarenergi AB and Göteborg Energi AB.
