The Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences in Finland (STV) supports technical and scientific research and higher education in order to promote the Finnish industry and society. STV has identified three important areas within energy production and use which STV wants to promote. These topics are renewable energy for transport, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and fuel cells.
