A new partnership between TotalEnergies and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) will see the establishment of an advanced research centre for clean energy.

The DTU-TotalEnergies Excellence Centre of Clean Energy at the university will focus on developing reliable, profitable and low-emission energy solutions that will reduce the intermittence of renewables and accelerate the decarbonisation of industrial facilities.

It will have three main missions: construction of a next-generation hybrid electric platform, multi-energy training for employees and research partnerships.

Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, TotalEnergies said: “Denmark is among the most ambitious and committed countries for clean energy. We established our conventional offshore technical centre here after acquiring Maersk Oil in 2018.

“This new research centre will contribute to TotalEnergies’ transformation into a multi-energy company. We are pleased to be able to count on the DTU’s internationally recognised expertise in renewables, especially floating offshore wind, to improve our performance, test tomorrow’s technologies and train our employees.”
