ContactPetteri Heino
DescriptionThe key players in the RDI Center of Excellence in Energy Technology in Northern Savonia are the Savonia UAS (Energy Research Center at Varkaus) and the University of Eastern Finland (Aerosol and Fine Particle Laboratory at Kuopio).

Energy Technology RDI Center of Excellency in Northern Savonia serves the leading international power plants and their components producing companies in Varkaus (Andritz and Sumitomo SHI FW) with their subcontractors and also several other companies in energy sector in Northern Savonia.

The energy sector is currently under a major transition. Without any adjustment measures, the future turnover of the leading manufacturers in energy sector will decline and this will also directly have influence on the subcontracting network in the region. The RDI center for energy technology in the Northern Savonia region needs to be strengthened to secure the future of the region's business.

The development needs in energy sector in Northern Savonia Region have already been identified in the preliminary project. As a result of the study, a number of technical development needs were identified. In addition, it emerged that the operating model and operating methods between RDI- Center and industrial companies in the region still requires further development. In this project it will be developed the Northern Savonia Energy Technology RDI Ecosystem.
