Aalto Energy Efficiency Research Programme

Aalto Energy Efficiency Research Programme (AEF) was an interdisciplinary programme that coordinated significant long-term projects aimed at improving energy efficiency. AEF supported new and potentially ground breaking projects, and strengthened cooperation within the Aalto University in different areas of research. The first research projects started in autumn 2012 and they were accompanied with new projects in summer 2013, with the last projects wrapping up at the end of 2017.

The Programme focused on practices and changes in operating environments that promote efficient use of energy. The approach was interdisciplinary, providing that the research objectives are only possible to achieve through genuine cooperation across different fields. The programme strengthened internationalization and research training and offered young researchers the opportunity to focus full-time on high-level research.
