More hydropower and a better environment
The Norwegian public authorities’ estimates of the potential to expand the country's power plants are probably too low. A new approach is creating opportunities for increased production while also enhancing environmental aspects.
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.
This technology will transform you into Superman
Imagine yourself putting on a suit of extra muscles, seeing with super vision and inspired with new skills – with sensors making sure that you don’t overextend yourself. This is the idea behind the project called “HuMan”, which has recently delivered what looks like pure sci-fi technology to partners including an Airbus factory.
Transportation for the 21st Century
What will the future transport system look like? SINTEF will contribute to answering this, through participation in the government-designated strategy process Transport21.
Hydrogen plant will make the “whisky island” Myken self-sufficient in electricity
If this solar and wind-based hydrogen project succeeds, it may become a model for many thousands of other small island communities worldwide.
What young people ask about when guaranteed anonymity
An analysis of almost 300,000 unsolicited questions written by young Norwegians on the website ung.no, has provided major insights into what they’re really interested in today. Their bodies, health and identity are among the topics heading the list.
The way forward for Norwegian windpower development
How can we protect nature and act on climate change? In the wake of heated debate in Norway over windpower development, energy researchers from Norway's largest university and Scandinavia's largest independent research institute offer politicians some thoughts.
Your life depends on these rare raw materials
The green transition is impossible without a few relatively unknown substances. Find out more about the raw materials we cannot manage without - and why we have to act smart with them.
This is what you need to know about CCS – Carbon Capture and Storage
Why is there so much talk about storing CO2 underground? Doesn’t it cost more than it’s worth? Here we provide the research scientists’ answers and explanations of why CCS is climate technology that we are completely dependent on. And yes, this can be performed in a safe manner.
