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.
BATMOBILE is a multi-scale modelling platform to support theory-based design of new batteries in both industry and research.
Hydra - Hybrid power-energy electrodes for next generation litium-ion batteries
Hydra will hybridize high-power and high-energy electrode materials to create sustainable Li-ion battery cells with excellent energy density.
GO2DEVICE – Novel (M,Ga)2O3 thin films for two-dimensional electron gas devices
The aim of the GO2DEVICE project is to develop a new transistor for use in the power electronics sector, which has the potential to become faster, smaller and operate at higher power than existing options. Power electronics (PE) play an important role in the collection, delivery and storage of energy, and is a key enabler for energy efficiency, renewable energy and smart grids. Silicon-based PE components have been optimized to the point where further improvements start to be limited by the materials properties themselves, and in order to meet the needs predicted for a sustainable society, new materials are targeted. Among the newest candidates is gallium oxide (Ga2O3), which is a wide bandgap semiconductor with an ultra-high breakdown field.
SINTEF supports AI-driven design in EU's most ambitious battery research project
EU invests €20 million to accelerate the development of the next generation of high performance and sustainable batteries.
Inventing the Sustainable Batteries of the Future
The European large-scale research initiative BATTERY 2030+ presents the long-term research roadmap that outlines the actions needed to invent the sustainable batteries of the future.
Award for “the world's most green solar panel”
SINTEF has played a part in revolutionising solar panel production – and here’s the proof! In connection with the Solar Impulse Foundation’s recently-published report, the “Eco-Solar” EU Project was awarded the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label” for developing efficient and more environmentally friendly solar panel concepts. SINTEF is the coordinator for this project.
