Call for nominations: SINTEF and NTNU CCS Award
2015: New year – new lab!
Blaklia - new laboratories
SINTEF Energy Research invests 165 million in a new electricity laboratory in Blaklia outside Trondheim. The new lab strengthens an area where SINTEF and NTNU are international leaders.
The new lab is being built close by Statnett substation on Blakli. This is an ideal location for such a lab.
The building will consist of seven separate laboratories, each geared toward their particular application area. The largest and most prominent being a new high voltage, which is dimensioned for system voltages up to 420 kV.
The Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME) comprised of selected centres which conduct research of high international calibre in order to solve challenges within the field. The purpose of these centres is to contribute to a better basis for decisions in the interface between climate, energy and industry. The aim is to increase the platform of knowledge for national and international energy policy.
SINTEF Energy is involved in six of the eleven national centres, and has the overall project management responsibility of four of the centres.
FME - Norway's Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research
SINTEF Energy Research has a strong research profile and together with industry and other research centres is involved in seven of the Research Council of Norway's Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME). The Company has a strong position in the EU's Framework Programme for research with extensive activities in sectors such as energy planning, wind power, transport of CO2, and purification technology for gas and coal power. The Company's scientific standing has been advanced by the realization of Stortingets (Norwegian parliament) Climate Agreement. This has placed us among the leaders of European energy research.
