Green Energy and Technology

Green Campus is our way of thinking and operating, allowing us to utilise interdisciplinary research and teaching activities innovatively to reduce environmental load.

Green Campus demonstrates how science, technology and business can help to provide solutions to ecological problems and build a sustainable world.

We utilise the university's competence in developing the infrastructure of the campus area. Examples of this include LUT's own wind turbine and solar power plant, electricity supply point for electric bikes in the campus area and electric vehicles.

Currently, an electric and a hybrid car bear the Green Campus colours. A completely new hybrid system for a bus suitable for city traffic is also presently under way. Electric power distribution in the area is realised with the groundbreaking Smart Grid system.

The university and its campus are located on a beautiful site by Lake Saimaa. Park areas in front of the university increase comfort on campus. The vast Tervahaudanpuisto park, extending along the shore, is developed to accommodate versatile recreational activities for all city inhabitants.
