A SINTEF-coordinated EU project. An important step towards renewable hydrogen
Technology tailored to convert solar and wind energy into zero-emissions hydrogen fuel is about to be tested at larger scales than ever before as part of a SINTEF-coordinated EU project.
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.
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.

Finnish delegation visits SINTEF Energy Lab
On Monday 13. March, a delegation of Rectors from The Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences and members of Finnish UAS Rectors Conference, together with Academic Trade Union Leaders and representatives from the Ministry of Education and Culture, visited SINTEF Energy Lab.
European researchers want to extend funding for renewables
An international team of researchers has concluded that operational funding should continue to be provided for the production of renewable energy in Europe, provided that such support is progressively reduced over time.
True hygge with environmentally friendly log fire
A crackling log fire is pure HYGGE. But what’s actually the best way to have log fires in our modern, well-sealed and fully-insulated homes?
CEDREN: Environmental design
The concept of environmental design in regulated salmon rivers describes how to evaluate, develop and implement measures to improve living conditions for salmon populations in regulated rivers, while taking hydropower production into account. Watch our three minutes introduction film.
