SINTEF Industry Sustainable Energy
RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
The transformation of the fossil-based energy sector with large greenhouse gas emission to clean energy is one of the greater global challenges. Our research area in sustainable energy covers technology within CCS, renewables, energy storage, hydrogen and fuel cells. The applied and innovation-driven research aim at making CCS and renewable technologies and energy systems reliable and affordable.
High Throughput laboratory - Oslo
The High Throughput laboratory can be divided in three main activates: 1) design and construction of high-throughput equipment, 2) parallel synthesis of materials, and 3) parallel screening of materials properties. We provide automated custom made high precisions equipment for a wide range of applications. Development and application of combinatorial and parallel approaches are used to accelerate the research and development of a large number of industrially relevant processes.
WASTE2ROAD - Biofuels from WASTE TO ROAD transport
The objective of WASTE2ROAD is to develop a new generation of cost-effective biofuels from a range of low-cost biogenic residues and waste fractions (contaminated wood, black liquor from pulp and paper industry, and municipal solid organic waste incl. food residues). Through optimisation of European waste recycling logistics and development of efficient low-risk conversion pathways, high overall carbon yields > 45% can be obtained while reducing greenhouse gases emissions > 80 %.
ANSWER - New thermoelectric ANtimonides and Silicides With EntRopy stabilization
The goal of ANSWER is to develop thermoelectric materials with impact on global energy management by stabilizing with entropy new covalent compounds.
SUPER PV - CoSt redUction and enhanced PERformance of PV systems
SUPER PV is pursuing an ambitious bus realistic goal for innovative PV system cost reduction and consequently significant LCOE reduction (26%-37%) by adopting hybrid approach combining technological innovations and Data Management methods along the PV value chain.
SINTEF partner announces plans to build a battery cell giga-factory in Norway
Freyr AS, a Norwegian incorporated company today announced its intention to build a 32 GWh battery cell facility in Mo I Rana, Norway.
New research initiative will power up Europe’s battery revolution
A world moving from fossil fuels to renewable energy will rely more and more on energy storage and in particular on batteries. Better batteries can reduce the carbon footprint of the transport sector, stabilise the power grid, and much more. The Battery 2030+ large-scale research initiative will gather leading scientists in Europe, as well as the industry, to achieve a leap forward in battery science and technology. The first Battery 2030+ project kicks off in March 2019 and will lay the basis for this large-scale research initiative on future battery technologies.
