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.
BIG-MAP: Battery Interface Genome – Materials Acceleration Platform
Batteries play an important role in our daily lives, powering smart phones, computers, and cars. As the world races to reduce CO2 emissions, the development of sustainable and high-performance batteries takes on an even more important role enabling the large-scale storage of renewable energy, electric shipping, and even electric aviation. The BIG-MAP (Battery Interface Genome – Materials Acceleration Platform) project will accelerate the speed of battery development by fundamentally changing the way we invent batteries.
Batmobile - Multi-scale modelling platform
BATMOBILE is a multi-scale modelling platform to support theory-based design of new batteries in both industry and research.
Battery 2030+ - BATTERY 2030+ large-scale research initiative: At the heart of a connected green society
BATTERY 2030+ is the large-scale and long-term European research initiative with the vision to invent the sustainable batteries of the future and enable Europe to reach the goals envisaged in the European Green Deal.
The EU battery research project HYDRA kicks off the development of sustainable, next-generation Li-ion batteries for electric vehicles
The EU Horizon 2020 battery research project HYDRA kicked off on September 16th, 2020. The virtual kick-off meeting brought together 12 leading partners from the European battery industry and research community to develop the next generation of sustainable, low-cost, energy-dense Li-ion batteries for electric vehicle (EV) applications.
BATTERY 2030+ – large-scale European initiative for battery research starts up
The European research initiative BATTERY 2030+ is now getting going. The ambition is to make Europe a world leader in the development and production of the batteries of the future. These batteries need to store more energy, have a longer life, and be safer and more environmentally friendly than today’s batteries in order to facilitate the transition to a more climate-neutral society. The project is led by Uppsala University.
Knowledge and innovation for circular transition
SINTEF hosted a very successful Circular Economy conference, the fourth in a row, with over 1600 participants. The topic for this year's conference was to share new knowledge and create new opportunities in the transition to a circular economy. Norwegian and international companies, researchers, decision-makers and the Minister of Climate and Environment, Sveinung Rotevatn, were present.
