We offer scientific research for the development and implementation of new, sustainable electrochemical energy systems.

Research areas

Our research on electrochemical energy systems covers electrolysis, fuel cells, batteries, solar cells and membranes. These are sustainable technologies with an increasing number of commercial applications in the energy sector, in maritime industry, in land-based industry, in transportation, and in building & construction.

To identify optimal solutions for these systems to operate in the best possible way, we use data analysis, modelling, techno-economic analysis, environmental systems analysis/LCA, as well as SINTEF's interdisciplinary competence.

Some relevant themes:
Electrolysis systems - How does dynamic operation, caused by e.g. intermittent solar or wind power, affect service life and how can optimal systems and hydrogen storage solutions be designed for such operation? Is there a need for- or beneficial to include - hybrid systems with, for example, batteries?

Fuel cell and battery systems - How to design and operate MW-sized energy systems, for example on board ships in the best way, based on modular fuel cell systems, and how should these be hybridized with batteries?

Energy storage - and supply in microgrids - How to combine energy production from wind and/or solar energy, energy storage and production of electricity and heat in the best possible way?

Membranes - How to design and operate membrane systems for hydrogen separation with CO2 capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) in the best way?

Control systems - How to control, regulate and control electrical, mechanical, mechatronic, chemical, and hydraulic systems?
