Wind and solar energy can play a more important role in the future.
When we change the energy landscape towards a low carbon system, what will be the consequences for research, education and industry? Experts will approach this question from different angles through lectures and a concluding panel discussion during the VISTA-day on the 19th of November. (21.10.2013) More
