Electrifying world needs new technology
LUT is a leading expert of electrification. We have established Finland's first electric transportation professorship in Lahti. Our aim is to harness the most recent research data for corporate use. The electrification of transportation requires significant changes to vehicle technologies, charging systems, electricity distribution, and related information technology.
Our strengths include an in-depth understanding of energy systems, digital design and manufacture of machinery and equipment, as well as demanding welded metal structures. Our research activities have been the springboard for many global bestselling products and new companies, such as Yaskawa and Danfoss. The tens of patents we have been granted are also a strong demonstration of our expertise.
In our cooperation with ABB, our activities focus on demanding, long-term research and product development activities related to electric machinery, electric drives and energy-efficiency.
