Description: Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is dedicated to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society. DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increase and develop partnerships with industry and the public sector. DTU has a large portfolio of projects in the field of renewable energy. Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE) concentrate their activities in transformation of the electric power system into a sustainable, efficient and reliable infrastructure based on renewable energy resources. CEE operates the world-class experimental platform, PowerLabDK, dedicated to develop, test and demonstration of distributed energy resources, smart grids and integrated energy systems.
Advanced characterisation platform for OPV
Description: Characterisation methods and instruments for advanced studies of structure, optical properties and chemical composition. The accessible instrumentation is 1. X-ray GISAXS/GIWAXS line for in situ studies of OPV structure on nanoscale; 2. Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) for studying chemical changes under degradation of OPV; 3. UV-Visible spectroscopic ellipsometry also used for detailing properties and changes in solar cell layers. Instruments are typically used in combination with solar cells processed on the “Polymer solar cell processing facility" offered as a separate TNA. Solar cell degradation and nanoscale structure have been investigated in international collaboration.

Intelligent Control Laboratory
Description: The Intelligent Control Lab is dedicated to testing and development of new advanced principles for intelligent supervision and control of smart energy systems.
Nordic Electric Vehicle Interoperability Center
Description: Nordic Electric Vehicle Interoperatability Center (NEVIC) was established in 2012 and is located in the DTU Electrical Engineering Department at Risø Campus in Roskilde, Denmark. NEVIC has the flexibility to do experiments in a live laboratory for intelligent, active and distributed power system. NEVIC platforms interoperatability testing according to IEC and SAE standards. The facilities are equipped with therequired capacity to supply severalcharging posts and fast chargingequipment from the EV operators inthe Danish market. NEVIC performsinteroperability tests of electricvehicles, cable cord sets, and EVSEin various research projects. NEVIChas developed simulators where theequipment can be tested to andbeyond the limits of the standards.The setup is flexible and can bequickly adapted to new technologyadd-ons. The connected infrastructureenables vehicle-to-grid testing in alive laboratory for intelligent, activeand distributed power.
Polymer solar cell processing facility
Description: Risø DTU has developed a set of dedicated facilities for processing of organic photovoltaics (OPV) in form of polymer solar cells. Glove box processing lines including coating and metallisation techniques for controlled atmosphere fabrication of test cells. Cells fabricated in a standardised layout may be tested using rapid solar test platform. Roll-to-Roll printing and coating machinery for processing of flexible polymer solar cells. Die slot coating for standard test of materials formulations according to “process one” [described in Krebs FC, Gevorgyan SA, Alstrup J, Mater. Chem., 2009, 19, 5442-5451]. Full functional solar cells can be processed including electrode grid, lamination and online test. Screen printing – both flat and rotary – is under installation and become available by the end of 2010.
Power student lab
Description: Power Student Lab is a flexible teaching and testing work space for supporting education activities of the energy and power engineers of tomorrow. The Power Student Lab offers standard work space for up to 32 students. Equipment for performing experiments, test and measurements is available.
Description: The PowerFlexHouse facility at DTU Risø Campus is a collection of three individual houses, which have been equipped with sensors and controllable power and heating equipment. The Power Flex House facility is interconnected with the configurable 400 V grid and the communication platform of the SYSLAB facility.
Description: SYSLAB is a laboratory facility for the development and test of control and communication technology for active and distributed power systems. The facility is spread across four sites on DTU Risø campus. Its backbone is formed by a 400V grid with sixteen busbars in six substations. A central 3-busbar crossbar substation allows the flexible selection of different grid topologies. Energy resources are geographically distributed with a system diameter of about 1km.
