Energy transition and digitalisation are LUT's new research flagships
LUT launches two interdisciplinary research platforms aspiring to high impact. Their themes are related to the central questions in LUT strategy: energy and digitalisation.
Common electricity market needs more transmission networks
According to a recent study, insufficient transmission network capacity reduces equalisation of wholesale prices in the Nordic electricity market. This has financial impacts on, for example, electricity users.
Solar power is coming whether you want it or not
"Solar power is not yet viable for energy producers in Finland as the market price of electricity is below the cost of solar power production. This is the main reason why our country's energy generators have not invested in solar power. But, even though Finland has not yet got up to speed with solar power, at some stage there will be a change. The change will be rapid and we need to prepare for it", says associate professor Antti Kosonen.
