Solar cell research with a new direction
Over the last decade, perovskites have received much attention in solar cell research all over the world. Perovskite solar cells combine the benefits of the high performance of conventional silicon solar cells and the low cost of polymer-based solar cells. It sounds like a winner, but there is still much research to be made before it is possible to produce perovskite solar cells commercially.
Green bio-oil may come from an unexpected place
We receive district heating and electricity from cogeneration plants (also known as combined heat and power plants). In the future they might also produce bio-oil, which can be used as biofuel or replace fossil oil in the chemicals industry. According to a new study, Sweden’s combined cogeneration plants have the potential to produce more than 20 percent of the current energy requirement within the transport sector.
Karlstad University has more than 200 exchange agreements with universities in about 35 countries around the world. Each year we welcome approximately 250 international exchange students.
