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.
WINNER - World class Innovative Novel Nanoscale optimized electrodes and electrolytes for Electrochemical Reactions
The WINNER project aims to develop an efficient and durable technology platform based on electrochemical proton conducting ceramic (PCC) cells designed for unlocking a path towards commercially viable production, extraction, purification and compression of hydrogen at small to medium scale.
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.
New laboratory and SINTEF's battery researchers will boost Norwegian competitiveness on batteries
There is a global knowledge race in all parts of the value chain related to the production, use and reuse of batteries. The independent Norwegian research institute SINTEF is now investing NOK 45 million (4.5 million Euro) in a laboratory for the production and testing of battery cells that will open during 2021.
Europe's largest PEM electrolyser nearing completion
The REFHYNE project is about to complete the construction of Europe's largest PEM electrolyser. The starting signal to produce green hydrogen on an industrial scale will be given on July 2 2021.
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).
