KTH's platform organisation for Energy (Energy Platform) was created to support and catalyze interdisciplinary research in the energy field. An important goal is to facilitate interaction between expertise at KTH and external partners within academia, public organisations and companies with an interest in Energy research.

Scientific research, education and innovation is at the heart of transforming todays energy system. Sustainability, reliability and cost-effectiveness are three key concepts in the energy supply of the future. The environmental impact of humanity is strongly linked to our energy services and production. Students and researchers are engaged in the global innovation effort to bring forward new knowledge and solutions that mitigate the threat of climate change and resource scarcity and enable sustainable economic growth for the earth’s population.
