Clean heat and power
VTT is a leader in the development of clean zero emission power generation concepts expertise and advanced utility boiler, gasification technologies and the use of biomass fuels and waste in heat and power production.
VTT develops together with its industrial partners new multifuel solutions for combined heat and power production (CHP), advanced monitoring and diagnostic methods to achieve high efficiencies and availabilities at power plants.
VTT offers a wide range of modelling, simulation, material and economic knowledge to boiler designers, manufactures and operators.
In addition to about 150 dedicated combustion and gasification specialists and bioenergy experts, customers have access to the expertise and network of the whole VTT organisation and its modern experimental facilities and modelling tools.
Nuclear and hydro power form a significant share of zero emission electricity production and wind power is targeted to increase substantially.
VTT performs contracted research for utility power plant owners and operators, and boiler manufacturers. Furthermore, VTT participates in national and international projects aimed at improving zero emission power generation.
