Sven Werner

Professor of Energy Technology at the School of Business, Engineering and Science, Halmstad University. Appointed in 2007.

Expert on district heating

– As a teacher, I am responsible for several basic and advanced courses at Halmstad University's energy-related programs, as well as managing and participating in international and national courses on district heating. I have also been supervising doctoral students who share my interest in district heating systems, says Sven Werner.

Sven Werner carries out research about district heating for the future needs in both Sweden and across Europe.

– In my research, I am extremely curious about different forms of district heating systems, which is why I coordinate and participate in various international research projects dealing mainly with Europe's heating supply. Several of these projects concern the new fourth-generation district heating system. Between 2009 and 2011, I was the vice president of DHC+, which at that time was the new European platform for district heating research.

Internationally active

Sven Werner's knowledge and research results have been visible in several scientific journals and reports, in textbooks and through numerous lectures.

– I have written textbooks on energy supply and district heating systems – a couple of more books are still on my "to-do" list.

Sven Werner has communicated his research through various activities and presentations in Finland, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Moldova, Ukraine, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, Ireland, UK, Belgium, Netherlands, USA, China and of course in Sweden.

– Several of these presentations were held at international energy collaborations within the International Energy Agency in Paris and the European Union and the Commission in Brussels, says Sven Werner.

Sven Werner is planning to retire 2017/18.

Sven Werner was born in Vänersborg in 1952. Following on from his Master of Science in Engineering degree obtained from Chalmers in 1977, he worked for a year in the business world before returning to Chalmers for doctoral studies. He defended his PhD thesis in 1984. He returned to the business world again with the Borås Energi public utility company and the Fjärrvärmebyrån organisation.
