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.
SINTEF to research ammonia as a green shipping fuel
SINTEF will work on solving research hurdles linked to the use of ammonia as a zero-emission fuel for the shipping sector. The Minister of Climate and Environment for Norway, Sveinung Rotevatn, announced at the end of last week that the project Ammonia Fuel Bunkering Network would receive NOK 89 million through the Green Platform Initiative.
NOK 120 million for the green shift in the aquaculture and fishery industry
The Norwegian Minister of Trade and Industry Iselin Nybø (V) and the Norwegian Minister of Education and Research Guri Melby (V) were in Trondheim yesterday to present NOK 120 million to the ZeroKyst project. Among other things, ZeroKyst will enable a Norwegian consortium to demonstrate solutions for hydrogen-electric vessels and mobile energy supply for fisheries and aquaculture.
