Renewable energy Hydrogen
SINTEF conducts research on how hydrogen could become an important energy carrier in a low-carbon society
Hydrogen can be an important energy carrier to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in a range of sectors, particularly transport, but potentially also in power generation and as a production input for industry. SINTEF is working in key areas in the whole value chain for hydrogen, from production to transport and storage, and end use.
AutoRE - AUTomotive deRivative Energy system
The overall aim is to create the foundations for commercializing an automotive derivative fuel cell system in the 50 to 100 kW range, for combined heat and power (CHP) applications in commercial and industrial buildings.
Ambition – Advanced biofuel production with energy system integration
The ECRIA project AMBITION aims to develop a long-term joint European Community Research and Innovation Agenda on the integration of biofuels production and surplus grid electricity valorisation. AMBITION brings together eight partners from eight different countries into a European wide lasting research partnership, which is closely linked to EERA Bioenergy.
Giantleap aims to increase lifetime and reliability of fuel cells in buses
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.
