Of course, we will also be presenting some of our exciting sub-projects, such as the optimised storage of electricity in mobile battery units, the production of bio-hydrogen, digital product passports and 6G for optimised production processes.

Energy-efficient cultivation and waste heat utilisation

We interviewed PhD student Christoffer Alenius about his work as part of the sub-project “Energy-smart cultivation and waste heat recycling”. His research focuses on the utilisation of waste heat from server rooms to supply to greenhouses, which also serve as educational facilities and resources for local vegetable production. The aim of the project is to optimise energy consumption, explore synergies between different industries, integrate renewable energy sources and create economic business models for a sustainable food supply.


We asked PhD students Melina Sattelmeier and Noomi Westling Öhman about their research in the field of optimised electricity storage. Their research focusses on improving the storage of electricity in water reservoirs and regulated rivers to increase the flexibility of the energy system.

production of biohydrogen gas

We interviewed Alma Fahlén Hammar, PhD student in waste technology at Luleå University of Technology, about sub-project 4 of the Green Transition North initiative. This sub-project focuses on the production of biohydrogen gas with the aim of exploring the potential for increased biomethane production in the region.


14-16 May 2024, Luleå
The project will participate in a co-organised stand during the Demo North Summit, a platform that brings together actors working on developing innovations for large-scale solutions and helping to improve opportunities for environmental challenges.


We interviewed Adam Isaksson, PhD student in process metallurgy at Luleå University of Technology, about sub-project 12 of Green Transition North. The work aim is to develop a new method for recycling black pulpmass.


Thursday, 1 February 2024, at 13:00 - 16:30, Stockholm

Welcome to a half-day event providing an in-depth insight into the green energy transition in the North, covering topical issues such as security of supply, ABB's perspective on sustainability, synergies between renewable energy and national defence, and hydropower's contribution to the green energy transition.


Wednesday, 13 December 2023, 9:00-15:00, Pite Havsbad, Piteå
During the day you will have the opportunity to explore Hitachi Energy's prominent role in the development of carbon neutral energy systems and discover PiteEnergy's significant role as a leader in renewable energy. Of course, we will also be showcasing some of our exciting sub-projects, which focus on sustainable business models for food supply, improving circular economy in value chains and extending product life cycles, among other things.

Monitoring, data collection and control of industrial processes

We had the opportunity to interview Mohammad Newaj Jamil, a PhD student specialising in Pervasive and Mobile Computing at Luleå University of Technology. He gave us insights into Green Transition North's sub-project 11, "Sensor Fusion and Data Analysis"," which focuses on improving the recovery process of black pulp from lithium batteries through hydrometallurgy.

The fight against electromagnetic interference

We interviewed Emelie Berglund, PhD student in Electronic Systems at Luleå University of Technology, about Green Transition North's sub-project 2 "Development of active filters for EMC"," which is about reducing electromagnetic interference (EMC) in electric drive systems. Power electronic systems generate interference, and the goal is to develop small, energy-efficient and integrated filters for electrified transport systems.

Visit by Member of the European Parliament

On 7 September 2023, MEP Rosa Damato and three members of her team visited Luleå University of Technology to explore our role in the green transition. LTU is known for its close cooperation with industry and our research contributes to solving the challenges associated with the transition. We have focused on how we empower SMEs through various projects such as Green Transition North and invited Rosa Damato to visit CH2ESS during Hydrogen Week in Brussels in November.


28 Sep. 2023, 10:00 - 16:30, Luleå
Luleå University of Technology, Telia and Luleå Science Park are hosting a partnership event. Welcome to a day of insight and discovery as we explore the potential of the digital infrastructure and industry of the future.
This event is in Swedish.

INTERVIEW: Optimised storage of electricity in mobile battery units

We interviewed Amin Moosavi, PhD student in fluid mechanics at Luleå University of Technology, about the sub-project 5 "Optimised storage of electricity in mobile battery units", which addresses key challenges in battery storage, including safety, cost, lifetime, limited energy density and environmental impact. In particular, the project aims to improve the thermal management of batteries in mobile applications.

Webinar: Exploring future 5G/6G opportunities

11 September, 2023, 13.00 - 14.30 (CET)

Welcome to this webinar where we will explore next generation connectivity. During our session we will talk about the important role of satellite communications in bridging the digital divide and connecting remote areas. We will also take a look at the 5G Vehicle Winter Testing Track, which will enable smart traffic and weather services, as well as explore the concept of rural access through windmill antennas.
