Renewable energy Solar power
Laboratory for advanced materials characterisation
The advanced materials characterisation laboratory in Oslo is equipped with a wide range of microscopes and surface analysis instruments able to image and analyse specimens on many length and depth scales. The local chemical composition and structure can also be determined from the micro- down to the atomic level.
HVDC Inertia provission
Future power systems are facing new challenges when traditional thermal generation units are replaced by renewable energy sources with power electronic grid interfaces.
LORCENIS – Long Lasting Reinforced Concrete for Energy Infrastructure under Severe Operating Conditions
The main goal of the LORCENIS project is to develop long lasting reinforced concrete for energy infrastructures under extreme operating conditions.
CABRISS – Implementation of a circular economy based on recycled, reused and recovered indium, silicon and silver materials for photovoltaic and other applications
CABRISS aims at pioneering a circular economy dedicated to handle the critical situation of recycling the important amount of photovoltaic waste and benefiting also to electronics, metallurgy and glass industries.
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.
Norwegian to lead energy research in Europe
