Annemarie Wöhri is coordinator for Chalmers' Energy Area of Advance (AoA), where she provides support to the management. In addition, Annemarie coordinates Chalmers’ strategic partnerships within the energy sector where E.ON, Göteborg Energi, Preem and ABB are the main collaboration partners.To equally address academic and industrial challenges, industry and researchers jointly initiate industrial research projects and set their priorities collaboratively. This partnership enhances the flow of knowledge in both directions, and is a key method of ensuring that research results are industrialized. However, in order to succeed, collaboration with industry requires partition of third parts such as organizations and the public sector as well. To generate a platform for knowledge exchange where all parts are welcome to join permeates the majority of AoA Energy´s activities. Working closely with the community, AoA Energy build the conditions for sustainable development, both locally and globally.
