SINTEF DEVELOPS TECHNOLOGICAL AND INDUSTRIAL SOLUTIONS TO ADDRESS GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL AND CLIMATE CHALLENGES
Living with zero-emission technology
How does technology change people, and how do people change in response to technology? Sixteen people volunteered to live in a high-tech, zero-emission house to help researchers answer those exact questions.
Fuel of the future
Heavy-duty trucks will soon be driving around in Trondheim, Norway, fuelled by hydrogen created with solar power, and emitting only pure water vapour as “exhaust”. Not only will hydrogen technology revolutionize road transport, it will also enable ships and trains to run emission-free.
An energy-efficient cleaning robot
State-of-the-art solar cells are efficient – but are even more so when they are kept clean. A cleaning robot developed by Norwegian researchers enables solar panels to deliver at full capacity.
The Reservoir laboratory provides methods and equipment for performing experiments at reservoir and production conditions.
Mass spectrometry - Advanced research-based analyses
We perform research-based mass spectrometric (MS) and high-throughput (HTS) analyses for SINTEF, academia and industry.
Integrating Balancing Markets in Hydropower Scheduling Methods
The future European electricity system will be more integrated cross-borders and will include a larger share of renewable intermittent generation than what is the case today.
LEANWIND - Logistic efficiencies and naval architecture for wind installations with novel developments
This project seeks to apply lean principles to the offshore wind farm project lifecycle. The primary LEANWIND objective is to provide cost reductions across the offshore wind farm lifecycle and supply chain through the application of lean principles and the development of state-of-the-art technologies and tools.
COMPACTS aims to develop next generation design methodology and recommendations for materials standards that will allow design of more compact, lightweight and robust steam-based bottoming cycles that will promote their implementation across all areas and stages of offshore oil and gas production. This will increase energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions by up to 30%.
