SINTEF DEVELOPS TECHNOLOGICAL AND INDUSTRIAL SOLUTIONS TO ADDRESS GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL AND CLIMATE CHALLENGES
Building the foundation in Trondheim for the green transition
For the first time, a major European research infrastructure project is being led by a country from outside the EU.
Norwegian to lead energy research in Europe
Nils Røkke, Director of Sustainability at SINTEF, is the new Chairman of the European Energy Research Alliance.
Air could be the world’s next battery
Storing compressed air in sealed tunnels and mines could be a way of storing energy in the future – if an EU project in which Norway is a partner is successful.
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%.
