In particular, new crosslinking concepts based on polyethylene copolymers, the use of thermoplastic polyolefin blends as well as additives that allow to reduce the electrical conductivity of the insulation material will be explored. Finally, the presentation will reflect on sustainability aspects, which play an increasing role in the development of new HVDC insulation materials.</span><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><div><br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div><img src="/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Calendar/PublishingImages/PO-Hagstrand.jpg" alt="Per-Ola Hagstrand" class="chalmersPosition-FloatLeft" style="margin:5px;width:258px;height:242px" /><strong>Per-Ola Hagstrand, </strong><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>I</strong></span><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>nnovation &amp; Technology, Borealis AB.</strong></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">Polyolefin materials can and will play a vital role in the transition towards a more sustainable society. For example, Germany will use high voltage direct-current (HVDC) power cables insulated with next generation cross-linked low density polyethylene (XLPE) to transfer a vast amount of renewable energy from north to south with minimal losses. <br />This will facilitate Germany’s green-energy transition (“Energiewende”). The presentation will give an overview of the development of next generation XLPE-based insulation material, which can be used up to a world record operating voltage of 640 kilovolt (kV).  </span><br /></div></span></div> <div><br /></div></span></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Calendar/Pages/Tandem-Webinar-Metallic-nanoalloys-for-next-generation-optical-hydrogen-sensors.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Calendar/Pages/Tandem-Webinar-Metallic-nanoalloys-for-next-generation-optical-hydrogen-sensors.aspxTandem Webinar – Metallic nanoalloys for next generation optical hydrogen sensors<p>Online Zoom.</p><p>​SAVE THE DATE: On October 5, it´s time for our online Tandem Webinar – Metallic nanoalloys for next generation optical hydrogen sensors.

Students, researchers, companies or the public sector - Welcome!</p><em>​</em><span style="background-color:initial"><em>The registration will open, and more info will be published in August.</em></span><div><br /></div> <div><strong>The Energy Area of Advance</strong> organizes not only energy research across Chalmers to connect research with the real world, but also works actively with finding platforms where our students can meet and co-operate with industry and the public sector. So, if your organization has a research problem for one of our students to solve, and you do not know where to begin or whom to contact, then you should be interested in our master thesis fair; a venue for exchanging ideas that are suitable for a master theses project. Collaboration with external organisation provides great values for Chalmers’s students, researchers, and to your organization. </div> <div> </div> <div><strong>At Chalmers, every master's programme</strong> is completed with a master's thesis work. The overall goal of the concluding degree project is to display knowledge and capability required for independent work as a Master degree in engineering. An opportunity to apply knowledge to the real world, especially, when collaborating with industry or the public sector. The master's thesis, which includes a public report and a public oral presentation, comprises 30 credits (corresponding 16 weeks of work) and is supervised by Chalmers researchers.  </div> <div> </div> <div><strong>Who should attend:</strong></div> <div>Any energy related company or the public sector that has a strong interest in engaging master thesis students are invited to present their organization and current/future project ideas. Chalmers industry strategic partners, industry collaborators connected to the competence centers and other Area of Advance are especially encouraged to participate. </div> <div> </div> <div><strong>Master students</strong> who are interested in working with an organization for the thesis are encouraged to participate. Chalmers researchers who are considering participating as supervisors are also welcome to attend.</div> <div><br /></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Calendar/Pages/Materials-for-Tomorrow-2022-Materials-Science-for-Sustainability.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Calendar/Pages/Materials-for-Tomorrow-2022-Materials-Science-for-Sustainability.aspxMaterials for Tomorrow 2022: Materials Science for Sustainability<p>Chalmers Conferens Centre, RunAn, Chalmers Campus Johanneberg, Gothenburg.</p><p>​SAVE THE DATE: The topic of the 2022 Materials for Tomorrow will be Materials Science for Sustainability and cover all aspects of the Wallenberg Initiative Material Science for Sustainability, WISE.
