Work and Projects
Below are a couple of examples of our work. We have solved a lot of other challenges, and we are continuously developing new solutions. Please get in touch if we can be of assistance.
Nordic Clean Energy Scenarios
The tool Nordic Clean Energy Scenarios was developed in 2021 by Tøkni and Nordic energy researchers in a project for Nordic Energy Research, the platform for co-operative energy research and policy development under the auspices of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
toLRN: Learning portal for sustainable development
Together with Envice and Energy Modelling Lab, Tøkni developed kaos.world, a learning portal for sustainable development for the Danish Ministry of Education. The educational material is intended for advanced secondary school students in the subjects of social science, geography, maths and physics.
kaos.world was created using toLRN, a learning platform built by Tökni.
toLRN: Learning portal for fisheries and aquaculture
SeaSources is a learning portal for fisheries and aquaculture intended for 6th grade pupils in Faroese primary schools. In addition to rich text and visual material, there are a number of interactive assignments.
SeaSources was created using toLRN, a platform built by Tökni.
The material is publicly available on the portal, but it is possible for teachers to set up classes, see progress and provide feedback to pupils as they solve the challenges in the portal. The solution was developed by Tøkni in close collaboration with the ocean research center Sjókovin and the public publishing house Nám.
The Horizon 2020 project REEEM aimed to use energy models to clarify how different energy strategies contribute to the transition to a competitive low-carbon EU energy society. Tøkni was responsible for communication and dissemination, the development of an online tool to visualise the possible decarbonisation pathways, as well as the development of a learning game, which is being used to learn about energy models.
OilSim - Learning Simulation
Between 2002 and 2014, Tøkni developed the learning simulation OilSim, and used it to deliver courses for petroleum companies, authorities and educational institutions under the brand name Simprentis. OilSim and Simprentis were sold to the major oil and gas service provider Schlumberger in 2014, and OilSim is still being used as a learning tool in their course portfolio. Therefore, Tøkni does not operate in the oil and gas industry any more.
Decision Support Tools
MareFrame was an FP7 European research project developing and promoting an ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management. In the project, Tøkni developed a suite of decision support tools to ensure the integration of case information. This included a multicriteria analysis tool and a tool to edit Bayesian Belief Networks, as well as an interactive learning tool.
Tøkni has developed a number of data visualisation tools for energy systems researchers. With the tools, you can see the long term impacts of different energy policy decisions.
