CNESS research platform - Climate Neutral Energy Systems and Society

Tampere University
Area of focusSociety, Technology

CNESS is Tampere University´s newly established platform on energy transition with a novel approach to address the challenges of climate change from the perspective of energy systems and society.

CNESS combines Tampere University’s existing and emerging potential and expertise in several engineering, natural science and social science disciplines, focusing on five closely interrelated areas: electrification of energy systems, hard-to-electrify areas, societal implications of the energy transition, value creation and energy transition, and energy policy.

This interdisciplinary character allows CNESS to contribute particularly to areas where natural sciences, engineering, business, and social science competencies on their own are not sufficient to tackle the evolving climate and future energy-related challenges. To this end, CNESS also seeks to actively liaise with partners and stakeholders.
