  • Low carbon electricity production and nuclear waste disposal - VTT case study

    Climate change mitigation requires a significant increase in low carbon electricity production technologies. Nuclear energy and renewable energy sources both play key roles. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is Northern Europe’s most significant multitechnological applied research organisation. VTT’s comprehensive nuclear energy expertise and research activities cover the technology and safety of nuclear power plants and nuclear waste management.


    VTT’s EcoCity concept aims for a modern lowcarbon city. The city will produce its own energy via renewable sources. In construction, only sustainable methods and materials are utilised. Energy use in the homes and facilities is energy efficient with zero or low energy buildings. The broad city plan comprises safe walking and cycling, green areas and parks for relaxation and recreation, and all around internet access. Digital technologies integrate the city with its services.
