How can we use resources more efficiently to produce electricity and heat?
How to design and scale the electricity transmission grid?
How to make the Finnish electric energy system more climate neutral?
EL-TRAN Consortium investigates what a resource efficiency means, how to implement such a system in Finland and elsewhere, what kind of policy problems are foreseeable in the process and how do we eventually resolve the problems.
The Consortium is coordinated by the University of Tampere. It is part of the programme ’A Climate-Neutral and Resource-Scarce Finland’. This programme is funded by the Strategic Research Council. The EL-TRAN consortium is funded 3.2Me during 2015-17.
