SINTEF performs research covering large parts of the battery value chain, including development of Li-ion technology, materials for new battery chemistries, battery cell design and prototypes, sensor technology, cooling and control systems (BMS) for...
Renewable energy will increasingly replace fossil fuel as a future energy source. The world needs an energy revolution that will require large investments in new solutions and infrastructure. SINTEF partners with industry and government agencies to create more efficient, less polluting and more flexible energy solutions
Research areas within renewable energy
SINTEF has decades of research experience in environmentally friendly and energy- and cost-effective bioenergy
Reliable electric power components in the transmission and distribution grid are crucial for the power system’s ability to provide society with secure, sustainable and competitive electricity at any one time.
SINTEF contributes to a reliable, environmentally friendly and cost-effective energy system
As a fuel, hydrogen is powerful enough to launch NASA’s space shuttles. It is also extremely environmentally friendly, as the only emission it produces when burned is water.
We work together with our customers to achieve efficient hydropower production that also respects nature, the local environment and wildlife.
The future energy system must support and facilitate a zero-emission society. Decarbonisation will be the most significant driving force on the road to such a society, but digitalisation and decentralisation will also be important. Together, these...
Making offshore wind power the cornerstone of the future energy system
Smart Grids are the digitalised and smart power grids of the future. They are also essential for Norway’s electrification efforts and success with the necessary reduction of greenhouse gas emissions .
SINTEF is doing research to make solar energy more efficient, more competitive, and more environmentally friendly.
Wave energy research is the set of disciplines that contribute to the exploitation of wave power to generate electricity or other useful work. SINTEF provides expertise on several of these disciplines and develops research-based solutions towards the...
