Division of Applied Thermodynamics and Refrigeration
Research and education at the Division of Applied Thermodynamics and Refrigeration is mainly focused on energy transformations in the built environment. Our area includes the whole scale from systems studies about energy user and energy flows in cities and buildings, to system components, as heat pumps and heat exchangers.
Smart and sustainable buildings
Buildings generate nearly 40% of the total direct and indirect CO2 emissions in the world. Studies concerning “production” units of energy, distribution of energy, and end use of it are relevant within this area.
