A SINTEF-coordinated EU project. An important step towards renewable hydrogen
Technology tailored to convert solar and wind energy into zero-emissions hydrogen fuel is about to be tested at larger scales than ever before as part of a SINTEF-coordinated EU project.
Fuel of the future
Heavy-duty trucks will soon be driving around in Trondheim, Norway, fuelled by hydrogen created with solar power, and emitting only pure water vapour as “exhaust”. Not only will hydrogen technology revolutionize road transport, it will also enable ships and trains to run emission-free.
Building the foundation in Trondheim for the green transition
For the first time, a major European research infrastructure project is being led by a country from outside the EU.
