The first, second, and third place in the Nordic Energy Challenge 2022 have been determined by this year’s jury. All proposals displayed high levels of comprehensiveness, innovation, and promotion of Nordic added value, but only one could be awarded the winning title.

Hereby, we wish to congratulate Qianwen Xu! She was elected winner with the following motivation:

“With a descriptive demonstration and a well-reasoned selection of sources, the winning candidate demonstrates good understanding of the barriers and opportunities faced by Arctic remote energy grids. With a clear technical approach, the project is targeting specific barriers for integrations of multi-technical energy sources and storage of energy in hydrogen. The project intends to develop proof of concept for different (known) technologies/hardware to better overcome problems for microgrids. Hence, the project proposal could have a very high degree of innovation.”

We would also like to congratulate runner-ups Elisabetta Tedeschi and Alfred Arnborg, who also presented valuable ideas in the final process. All top three candidates were awarded at the conference The green future of maritime operations in Nuuk on October 4–5.
