  • Roads could power cars across Europe

    Electric car development is primarily focused on fuel efficiency, and until recently, researchers have been seeking answers under the bonnet. But a team at KTH Royal Institute of Technology is looking a little lower, at the street below.

  • Researchers very critical of the security of the electricity grid

    Smart electricity grids are the future and the IT company Cisco is the only company to have assessed the market in communication products in the smart electricity grid which alone is worth SEK 70 billion over the next five-to ten-year period. But the way to the smart electricity grid's entry into our homes is lined with challenges. Now two KTH professors are raising their voices about the lack of security in today's grid and tomorrow’s smarter cousin.

  • Underwater kites could be next wave in clean energy

    Moored to the ocean floor, they glide in the slow-moving currents to reap energy. A KTH researcher involved in Europe's biggest "underwater kite" project explains how it works.

  • Spreading the word about smart grids

    With Sweden's first professor of the smart grid joining the faculty, KTH could become an international driving force on the subject.

  • Saving energy online in everyday life

    How much energy is actually consumed when replaying a cat video on Facebook? Two teachers in Media Technology went directly to the everyday lives of students when teaching Sustainable Development. And recently their pedagogic performance has been rewarded with a science prize.

  • ENEF- Central Baltic Cooperation in Energy Efficiency and Feasibility in

    ENEF seeks to develop national and international networks to transfer practices and tools for calculating energy efficiency. The impact of different architectural or technical solutions in the planning stage on practical level (urban planners, architects, building companies and real-estate owners will be analyzed. ENEF is a Central Baltic project financed by the European Regional Development Fund
