Aalto Energy Platform

Energy meets information, materials and society

The Aalto University Energy Platform initiates and coordinates multi- and interdisciplinary research that supports synergy within the field of sustainable energy solutions. Energy Platform works to facilitate and strengthen both industry-academia collaboration and internal cooperation within the university. The platform organises and gathers energy-related research and activities.
