INDEK researchers receive large project funding from Swedish Energy Agency
Frauke Urban and Emrah Karakaya from INDEK, KTH have been awarded about 14 million SEK for a new project on Sustainable Energy Transformations in Aviation (SETA) from the Swedish Energy Agency, together with Anna Björklund from the ABE school, KTH and Johan Nordensvärd from the University of Linköping. The project is part of the Graduate School in Energy Systems by the Swedish Energy Agency.
The SETA project aims to contribute to an acceleration of sustainable energy transformations in aviation, with a focus on bio-based jet fuels and electric aircrafts. The Swedish government has set ambitious targets to become carbon neutral by 2045. This includes targets for having a completely fossil-free transport sector in 2045, including for aviation. The project will be exploring the socio-technical opportunities and barriers related to these transformations. Three Doctoral students will be employed as part of the project.
