Aalto Energy Platform

Energy meets information, materials and society

Note: Aalto Platforms have merged under the Aalto Networking Platform. We are currently restructuring our web portal and some information here may be out of date. Please contact Sam Cross about Energy Key Research area.

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.
