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.
eaSi-system - Framework for systematic SDG impacts assessment
Our ambition is to create a novel and comprehensive methodology that will bring together the technology development process and resulting technological change. Taking the systems perspective on global value chains, the goal is then to identify subsequent impacts that these have on long-term sustainability as measured by the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) towards 2030.
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.
StoRIES attempts to build up a unique Storage Research Infrastructure Eco-System in Europe
To address the European Green Deal challenges in the field of energy storage, a proposal has been submitted as part of EERA Joint Programme on Energy Storage. The consortium includes 16 partners and 31 beneficiaries from 17 countries all having a vast background in all the energy storage technologies (electrochemical, chemical, thermal, mechanical and superconducting magnetic storages).
DLR & SINTEF research cobalt-free electrodes
The German Aerospace Center (DLR) and Norway’s SINTEF institute are researching cobalt-free lithium-ion batteries in the EU project HYDRA together with ten partners. They want to test an industry-ready prototype for real-world operation in a ship battery system.
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.
