The Chalmers Energy Initiative (CEI) is based on the raised level of funding for strategically important research areas appointed by the Swedish Government in the Bill “A Boost to Research and Innovation”. Chalmers has been granted SEK 58 million per annum from 2012 and in total SEK 230 million for the period 2010-2014. The President of Chalmers has pledged to provide additional support to Chalmers Energy Initiative corresponding to at least 50% of the sum granted.
CEI complements and further strengthens:
- the well-established energy research environment at Chalmers
- energy-related competence centres at Chalmers
- Chalmers’ work for benefits for society from Chalmers’ energy research
CEI covers four research areas: Energy Combines, Electric propulsion systems and hybrid vehicles, Large-scale renewable electricity generation and grid integration. In our work, we have added a fourth system oriented area, Technology Impact Assessment. Chalmers collaborates with the two institutes SP Technical Research Institute (in all four areas of CEI) and Innventia (within Energy Combines).
