SINTEF DEVELOPS TECHNOLOGICAL AND INDUSTRIAL SOLUTIONS TO ADDRESS GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL AND CLIMATE CHALLENGES
SINTEF receives UN award for green leadership
After winning first prize in a UN competition, SINTEF will be leading a project to promote solar-powered electric vessels in North Africa and the Middle East.
Opening of the world’s largest centre for research into industrial energy efficiency
As part of the new global climate change agreement, all the countries of the world have made a commitment to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. They must now prepare their own domestic plans for emissions reductions. The goal is to prevent the global temperature from rising by more than 2 degrees by the year 2100.
4 November: Kick-off for the Paris Climate Agreement and a new CCS research centre
With the new climate agreement which comes into effect on Friday 4 November, the world is committed to cutting its greenhouse gas emissions. All countries must create their own national plans for cutting emissions – and then report on their progress. The goal is to prevent the global temperature rising by more than 2 degrees by the year 2100.
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%.
