Aarhus University Seal


To realize our ambition, we run a large variety of projects from the BSc level to the MSc and PhD levels. Some projects target clear applications and are typically in collaboration with industry. Other projects aim for more in-depth and fundamental research and are typically carried out with partners from other universities in Denmark, Scandinavia, the European Union and overseas countries, including USA. This approach allows us to maintain and strengthen our connection with the industry, while at the same time establishes our scientific leadership in the field nationally and internationally. This approach enables us to target various funding agencies to support our research activities such as the Independent Research Fund Denmark, Innovation Fund Denmark, Aarhus University Research Foundation, EU Horizon 2020, European Regional Development Fund, and private funds.

Please, contact us, if you would like to know more about possibilities for collaboration on research and development!

  6. Underground Pumped Hydro Storage -EUDP

    Kenny Kataoka Sørensen , Lars Vabbersgaard Andersen & Hans Henning Stutz

    According to the Danish Energy Agency’s latest projection, the Danish power grid will reach 100% renewable energy no sooner than 2028. However, we can already now see a demand for a more flexible and secure power distribution due to the fluctuating energy production and consumption. Most experts suggest energy storage systems as the most sustainable, ideally suited and lasting solution.

    The aim of this project is to develop and test critical parameters for a technology that enables storing energy in water according to the well-known principle of Pumped Hydro Storage (PHS) – but in an underground geomembrane, i.e. by installing a 10 x10 meter mock-up. The project focuses on geotechnical conditions and membrane design and will include the conduction of a range of examinations including the technological adaptation in the energy market in combination with various renewable energy sources and business cases.Description
