Institute of Energy Systems and Environment (VASSI) of Riga Technical University (RTU) officially was established in 2006 (decision of RTU Senate from 29/06/2006) however the activities of VASSI started already in 1997.

VASSI provides qualitative environmental studies and scientific research cooperating with other educational institutions as well as intervene into local and international projects with a goal to obtain active scientific movement in field of energy and environment and to advance sustainable technical solution development what is based on natural resources conservation and elimination of pollution.

Institute of Energy Systems and Environment underfoot lay 3 scientific research laboratories. Green laboratory - the main activities are connected to research of environmental politics, development of environmentally friendly energy solutions, solving issues of environmental politics, development of green strategies, as well as consultations for governmental and non-governmental organizations regarding environmental and energy issues. Activities of Environmental Monitoring laboratory are focused on environmental process control: atmospheric pollution, industrial, transport and energetic object pollution, energy sources environmental impact, water facilities condition monitoring which is done by using modern laboratory equipment. However the main mission of the staff of Climate Technology laboratory is to reduce the impact on climate by establishing new technological methods: use and application of renewable energy source (wind, solar, biofuels) technologies and rational use of energy at the energy source, transmission and energy end-user side.

At the present VASSI participates in two EU Baltic Sea Region projects (PEA and PlasTEP project), as well as in 2 projects co-financed by EEA Financial Mechanisms (System thinking integration in environmental policy and Compact Solar and Pellet Module), Intelligent Energy Europe program project (North Pass) and 7th Framework program projects (BioWalk4Biofuels) as well as in local projects.

Our main expectations for the PEA project are mainly related with the creation and development of evaluation methodologies that will be used for assessment of the outputs of the project as well as the project at all. We believe that it will be a great challenge for us and all the project team. Let’s do it and let’s see the final results!
