The Department of Energy Technology established the Low Power Energy Harvesting and i-Solutions Research Programme in 2017. This research programme has its main focus on designing optimized energy harvesting energy systems through complete and detailed modeling, multi-parameter optimization and hardware design. Activities include multiphysics modeling as well as experimental work involving full energy harvesting systems and individual energy harvesting technologies such as, thermoelectricity, piezoelectricity, electromagnetics, etc.
A main aspect of the research activities is to use cutting edge results in the training of highly qualified undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD candidates within the field of energy harvesting offered by the Energy Study Programme at Aalborg University. If you have an interest in working with intelligent, independent and integrated low-power energy harvesting solutions, as a part of your studies, you are welcome to investigate the possibilities. We also welcome guest students.
