The concluding conference in connection with Green PE will take place on 25 January at Alsion in Sonderborg and will give companies the possibility to hear about the project’s conclusions regarding green energy efficiency. At the same time, they will have the opportunity to ask questions and talk to European politicians, researchers and other company representatives.

The Mads Clausen Institute at SDU Sonderborg is very aware of the climatic challenges the world is facing. For the institute, it is part of its responsibility to invent those technical solutions that make a difference in everyday life, both regionally and globally.

One of the initiatives that MCI has launched, is the Interreg Baltic Sea Region project Power electronics for Green Energy Efficiency (Green PE) that is part-financed with means form the European Regional Development Fund. In this project, the institute has, together with other universities, communicated their in-depth knowledge about new materials for the use within advanced power electronics. The project’s aim was to break down the communicational borders between the university world and industry, so that companies in the Baltic Sea Region were able to see the obvious benefits in new semiconductor materials such as SiC and GaN.

The materials form the basis for the semiconductor components, which are so crucial for the development of efficient electronic systems that are used in, e.g., windmills. The dissemination of the universities’ knowledge to the industrial partners has meant that the companies will get ready for next generation power electronics, which leads to significant energy savings and sustainable solutions. In short, better renewable, green energy and, when all comes to all, growth and higher employment rates in the entire Baltic Sea Region.
