SINTEF creates the future’s energy solutions
Renewable energy will increasingly replace fossil fuel as a future energy source. The world needs an energy revolution that will require large investments in new solutions and infrastructure. SINTEF partners with industry and government agencies to create more efficient, less polluting and more flexible energy solutions
Areas of expertice
The energy system of the future will incorporate higher levels of production from renewable sources and greater consumer flexibility. It must also be robust and reliable. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) will be used extensively to monitor, regulate and automate the grid.
Hydropower is by far the main source of electricity production in Norway today and will remain so in the future. SINTEF has extensive research expertise in hydropower.
SINTEF has decades of research experience in environmentally friendly and energy- and cost-effective bioenergy
Our research is developing the future’s system solutions for hydropower, wind power and the power grid at the Norwegian, Nordic and European level –including in production planning, the development of offshore wind power and smart grids. We conduct internationally leading research that covers the entire energy chain, from production through storage and distribution, to end-use and environmental impacts.
