Centre of Renewable Energy of Estonian University of Life Sciences
Centre of Renewable Energy of Estonian University of Life Sciences was founded in March 2006.
The aim of the Centre is to start, coordinate and develop interdisciplinary scientific and developmental co-operation in the field of renewable energy in our University.
Every year we hold a national renewable energy conference Investigation and Usage of Renewable Energy Sources which brings together researchers, entrepreneurs and politicians to discuss most pressing matters and new developments in the field. Each year we have more than 200 participants. Conference proceedings and presentations are disseminated via our centre's page in Estonian.
Main research themes and workgroups in our University are:
- Bioenergy from grasses and agricultural crops;
- Short rotation forests;
- Biomass from the forestry;
- Technological solutions for production and use of renewable energies;
- Economical and social aspects of production and use of biofuels.
