  • Creating and Understanding Smart Innovation in Cities

    This project aims to identify the key factors regarding Cleantech innovation creation and the understanding in how the innovation process for Cleantech works in an urban environment.

  • Renewable Energy Park - RE-Park

    Use of green energy generated by solar and wind power technologies would help contribute to a clean and secure energy future for Sweden compared to conventional fossil energy resources. Along with the EU-directive for renewable energy of July 2009, Sweden declared that its primary national target is at least 50% of its total energy use would be from renewable energy resources by year 2020, and out of that, there would be at least 10% in transport sector. Combining renewable energy with modern energy saving techniques and IT-applications will necessarily lead to significant energy-efficient decisions that would profit the consumer and secure the competitiveness of the Swedish industries. Several studies have estimated the general saving potential to be in the range of 20-40% of the total energy costs in addition to the reduced impact on the environment. The concept of the Renewable Energy Park (RE-Park) will play an increasingly important role in the nation energy portfolio targeting the renewable energy integration in smart city with net-zero energy housing and healthcare facilities. The RE-Park is an assembly of small power-generating modules, energy storage system and energy management protocols in order to improve the operation of the electricity and heat supplying system in both presence and absence of a grid connection facility. The project involves the development of communication protocol over the internet which is ready for smart grid applications to monitor, control and manage the RE-Park for electricity and heat delivery options.

  • Wave energy benefits from the mistakes of wind power

    Is wave energy the new star of renewables? The potential is great and a research team at KTH works towards a faster development for harvesting the powers of the seas.

  • Solar energy repackaged for the mass market

    The mass market appeal of solar power could get a boost from design and packaging concepts being developed at KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

  • Waste could help fuel low carbon energy and transport

    In a time when society – and nature itself – are threatened by climate change, it seems fair to ask: Does recycling still matter? Two KTH researchers say it does.

  • Breakthrough in Artificial Photosynthesis Could Boost Solar Future

    Researchers at the KTH Department of Chemistry have designed a molecular catalyst able to convert water into oxygen and protons at speeds similar to natural photosynthesis. The rapidly advancing field could lead to more efficient solutions for converting and storing solar energy.

  • Communication was key to landing Obama visit

    Efficient communication with the White House staff and a few research news items on the university’s website led U.S. President Barack Obama to visit KTH during the first presidential visit on Swedish soil.

  • Building the supergrid

    KTH Royal Institute of Technology researchers are helping to ensure that the power grids of the future meet the new demands created by renewable energy.

  • Communication influenced Obama's choice

    Efficient communication with the White House staff and a few research news items on the university’s website led U.S. President Barack Obama to visit KTH during the first presidential visit on Swedish soil.

  • Web firestorm raises concern over free exchange in science

    Where new research is concerned, how free is one to think out loud and express ideas? The Swedish politician, Peter Pedersen, has already found out – at some cost. When he asked an open question about wind-powered vehicles and rechargeable batteries to a research panel, it led to gross persecution on the Web. In actual fact, his ideas touched upon several pioneering solutions for eco-sensitive transport.
