We are pleased to welcome TalTech, the Tallinn University of Technology, as a first Academia member of the Current/OS Foundation.
Tallinn University of Technology has a unique position as the premier institution in engineering and IT science and education in Estonia, providing higher education at all levels in engineering and technology, information technology, economics, science, and maritime. TalTech’s mission is to be a promoter of science, technology, and innovation and a leading provider of engineering and economic education in Estonia.
In particular, the Tallinn University of Technology is at the forefront of steering Estonia and the global community towards a sustainable digital future with confidence. The university maintains constant interaction with other academic institutions worldwide, fostering connections among scientists, students, and entrepreneurs. Among its nearly 10,000 enrolled students, approximately 11% come from over 100 different countries.
According to Dr. Dmitri Vinnikov, Head of Power Electronics Group of TalTech, the unfolding paradigm shift to power electronics-enabled Direct Current power distribution in buildings can further push the energy performance limits by reducing electricity consumption and improving energy independence and resilience. Emergence of DC buildings will lay a foundation for coherent innovation alongside the other DC-enabled applications such as telecom, data centers, more electric aircrafts and ships, electric vehicles, etc., thus representing unique spin-off business opportunities. We strongly believe that collaboration between TalTech and Current/OS Foundation will help pushing forward the innovation and accelerating the industrial uptake of the highly promising Direct Current power distribution technology.
The Current/OS Foundation is extremely pleased to be strengthening its collaboration with TalTech.
