ELEGANCY – Enabling a Low-Carbon Economy via Hydrogen and CCS
As the only technology that can substantially reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels, CCS is an essential component in 114 of 120 scenarios with 0.9–2.3°C global warming above pre-industrial levels in the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report.
The vision of Sharing Neighbourhoods is digitalization towards a socially inclusive and caring neighbourhood. We will investigate the effects of digital collaborative sharing platforms on the social interactions in neighbourhoods, and the new economic models that these platforms enable in the neighbourhoods.
OPTIMALS – Optimal design and production of lightweight and high-performance aluminium-steel structural components
The main goal of the OPTIMALS project is to enable multi-material solutions for high-performance aluminium-steel structural components with a total reduction of weight and manufacturing cost.
HVDC Inertia provission
Future power systems are facing new challenges when traditional thermal generation units are replaced by renewable energy sources with power electronic grid interfaces.
TheONE - design of wood burning stoves
The aim of the project is to develop a standardized wood stove combustion chamber for each industry partner, ultra-flexible and capable of complete and clean combustion independently of the wood stove exterior design, to significantly save development time and total production costs for manufacturers.
NorEUnergy - Establishment of Norwegian-EU networks in the bioenergy field
NorEUnergy II will focus on increasing the mobilization and participation of Norwegian actors in the field of bioenergy, as one of the prioritized scientific areas in the new integrated SET-Plan.
ProTrafo - Next Generation Protection of Transformers
The transformer is one of the key components in any electric power system. Its purpose is to convert between different voltage levels, thereby enabling transmission of power over long distances, and the distribution of power to the end customer. The failure of a transformer leads to substantial costs for the owner and often loss of power as well.
Short-circuit Current Making in Medium Voltage Switches with Environmentally Friendly Gas
ABB EPMV in Skien manufactures 12 - 40.5 kV compact, gas insulated switchgears for the world market. Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) gas is used as the electrical insulation- and current interruption medium. However, since SF6 is an extremely strong "greenhouse gas", restrictions on its use are anticipated.
