Basic safety measures will save lives in tunnels
What has to happen to facilitate more effective rescues from tunnel fires? Researchers have been investigating how 80 research subjects wearing VR glasses reacted in a virtual tunnel fire. Their conclusion is that basic measures can save lives.
A university place was her ticket to escape inequality
Annah (26) from South Africa, currently working at SINTEF, is a living piece of the jigsaw that lies behind a new peace prize award.
Short-term hydro operation planning could bring in billions
What is the best timing for the various hydroelectric plants to produce power? NTNU and SINTEF have developed an efficient and profitable simulation tool to make the most of hydropower generation.
Global Aquatech Summit
The young and growing aquaculture industry is in rapid development. World Resource Institute has estimated that the production must be doubled from the 65-70 million metric tons today, to 160 million metric tons by 2050. This to keep up with the demand for fish from an increasing population, up to 10 billion people at that time.
How to cut emissions and save on transmission costs
Even Norway, which already heats with green energy sources, could contribute more to shrinking Europe's CO2 emissions. Building zero emission neighbourhoods would also help lower rising electrical transmission fees.
Better fish welfare using “sensor” fish
The electronic "sensor” fish measures the physical factors that affect farmed fish during delousing. The results may lead to welfare improvements in salmon farm cages.
ELEGANCY Consortium meeting in a historic setting
On 9 November the third ELEGANCY Consortium meeting was held in Brussels, Belgium. With ELEGANCY’s main research focus CCS and hydrogen in mind, the European Gas Research Group (GERG) was a perfect fit to host the event. GERG Brussels offices are in the UNESCO World Heritage listed building Hôtel van Eetvelde.
ELEGANCY Conference 2018
The focus of the ELEGANCY Conference 2018, held in Brussels on 8 November, was bringing together the right knowledge and stakeholders to decarbonize Europe’s energy system. The participants learned how the ELEGANCY project contributes to decarbonizing Europe’s energy system through hydrogen and CCS, project members presented recent results and external stakeholders gave perspectives on both hydrogen and CCS. This blog gives a short overview of the presentations at the conference.
