1 UNIVERSITY OF JYVÄSKYLÄ 2006 Renewable Energy Programme Evaluation of the Energy Research In Finland , University of Jyväskylä Jyväskylä

2 UNIVERSITY OF JYVÄSKYLÄ 2006 University of Jyväskylä - International Science University 2nd largest in Finland in terms of number of M.Sc. degrees granted Eight Centers of Excellence (two shared) Seven faculties (Natural Science, Social Sciences, Economics,…) & nine institutes 2500 employers, students Founded in 1934

3 UNIVERSITY OF JYVÄSKYLÄ 2006 Faculty of Mathematics and Science Departments of Biology and Environmental Science, Chemistry and Physics 47 professors, 440 staff, c.a students Four centers of excellency (two shared) Accelerator physics, heavy ion cyclotron Nanoscience Center, 12 professors, 80 senior researchers and Ph.D students Renewable Energy Program, 5 professors, 8 staff Jyväskylä Summer School, all science disciplines + information technology, annually since 1991 Participant or co-ordinator of 20 national Graduate Schools

4 UNIVERSITY OF JYVÄSKYLÄ 2006 Energy Research in JYU Long history, related to local core industry: energy efficiency in forest industry, peat processing, black liquor recovery, biogas research Co-operation with local actors e.g. Metso Oyj, Vapo Oy, VTT (Energy, Jyväskylä), Jyväskylä Science Park Oy Renewable Energy (RE) Study and Research program launched in Jan 2003

5 UNIVERSITY OF JYVÄSKYLÄ 2006 RE Program - Profile & Vision Focus on renewable energy areas that have received little attention in Finland and on promotion of use of renewables on regional and national level Multidisciplinary approach combining technical, economical, environmental and social aspects, unique in Finland Focus on globally growing energy sectors –biomass, biogas,  CHP, pellets, biodiesel –solar energy, electricity, heat –wind energy –environmental heat –integrated systems, hydrogen –evaluation of the energy chains, LCAs

6 UNIVERSITY OF JYVÄSKYLÄ 2006 Co-operation and important relations VTT (Energy, Jyväskylä): Bioenergy Research centre shared research director, combustion of biomass Jyväskylä Science Park, regional utilization and commercialization of renewable energy Companies, PVO Oy (CO 2 -recovery), VAPO Oy (field drying of biomass, HT-NERCO Oy (  -CHP), Jyväskylä Energy Oy (hydrogen production and storage), Eskimo Ask (renewables in real estate investments) Advisor to preparatory committees of the Finnish Parliament and ministry of Trade and Commerce

7 UNIVERSITY OF JYVÄSKYLÄ 2006 Joint program between Central Finland and Southern Botnia supported by regional EU development funds

8 UNIVERSITY OF JYVÄSKYLÄ 2006 Renewable Energy Program Staff: 5 professors, 2 research directors, 4 researchers, coordinator, laboratory engineer 59 M.Sc. students: master thesis topics from industries & companies, regional development organization 10 PhD students, including 2 (out of 5) of Graduate School of Energy Technology (funded by Academy of Finland): themes
