Research area

The Sustainable Energy Planning Research Group works with an interdisciplinary approach to sustainable energy planning. The subject of study is energy planning in general and focus is on technical and geographical aspects, such as energy system analysis, and economic and institutional aspects, such as feasibility studies and public regulation seen in the light of technological change.

Energy Planning in practice

In practice, the work of the research group comprises:

  • Definition of strategies for the development of energy conservation, renewable energy sources, and combined heat and power production (CHP)
  • Design and analysis of specific proposals for integrating wind power and CHP
  • Development of computer programmes for designing CHP investments
  • Design and application of analytical models of local and national energy systems
  • Regular involvement in the design of the Danish energy policy and its implementation

Education

The research group has the main responsibility for the Master's programme of Sustainable Energy Planning & Management. Further, the group is involved in PhD education at the International Doctoral School of Technology and Science at Aalborg University.
