Conference: Advanced Power Electronics in the Baltic Sea Region

On January 25th, 2019 the final conference of the Green PE project took place in Sonderborg, Denmark. The project partners as well as stakeholders from all over the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) came together to talk and discuss current topics of advanced power electronics and the main findings of the project. In the focus of attention were the research methods, processes and results concerning the three demonstration pilots on:

  • renewable energies
  • e-mobility
  • smart houses

After the welcome speech by lead partner Horst-Günter Rubahn from SDU, Troels Peterson, Senior Vice President of Danfoss M&A explained how global megatrends, urbanisation, digitisation and electrification are driving forward.

Plenary Session

During the plenary session, Per Ranstad from KTH Royal Institute of Technology shared his view on the implementation of SiC power components in an industrial power supply. Robert Dwilinski from AMMONO, a company specialising in the production of single crystals of gallium nitride (GaN) based on an original ammonothermal method protected by numerous international patents, presented some aspects about future prospects on GaN devices in the BSR. Frerk Haase from HAW |Fraunhofer ISIT gave a presentation about power electronics for renewable energy systems. At the end of the plenary session, Kristaps Dambis from the company Drive eO explained how innovative technology devices can be used in the BSR in the present and future.

Green PE – a retrospective view

„The BSR is well known for being a forefront runner on the way to a sustainable green future. The Green PE project reached out to hundreds of companies and has raised the awareness of the innovation potential advanced power electronics has throughout the BSR. Having partners and network partners from both academia, industry and technology transfer organisations, the project has shown that a close intersectoral collaboration can create new ideas, products and solutions.“
