PANTERA (PAN European Technology Energy Research Approach) is a EU H2020 project aimed at setting up a European forum composed of Research & Innovation stakeholders active in the fields of smart grids, storage and local energy systems, including policy makers, standardisation bodies and experts, representing the EU energy system.
PlastiSea - Novel enhanced bioplastics from sustainable processing of seaweed
The main objective of PlastiSea is to develop novel bioplastic materials based on cultivated and wild species of brown algae.
SUMMER's ambition is to obtain the information vital for a sustainable use of ocean resources through a comprehensive understanding of ocean functioning across its full depth.
ElMar - Electrification of maritime transport and the ports of the future
Challenges related to the electrification of maritime transport are now being mapped in a new SINTEF project with port authorities, grid companies, energy companies and ship-owners as partners. The aim is to reduce emissions by making the establishment and use of shore power and battery charging facilities more attractive.
MEESO shall uantify the spatio-temporal distributions of biomass, production and ecosystem role of mesopelagic resources and assess options to sustainably manage and govern their exploitation.
The Norwegian government wants Norway to be an Arctic Ocean knowledge leader. NOK 3 million has been given to the project "GoNorth" to research and gain knowledge of the marine areas north of Svalbard.
Virtual-FCS - VIRTUAL & physical platform for Fuel Cell System development
The main aim of the VIRTUAL-FCS project is to make the design process of hybrid fuel cell and battery systems easier, cheaper and quicker.
GO2DEVICE – Novel (M,Ga)2O3 thin films for two-dimensional electron gas devices
The aim of the GO2DEVICE project is to develop a new transistor for use in the power electronics sector, which has the potential to become faster, smaller and operate at higher power than existing options. Power electronics (PE) play an important role in the collection, delivery and storage of energy, and is a key enabler for energy efficiency, renewable energy and smart grids. Silicon-based PE components have been optimized to the point where further improvements start to be limited by the materials properties themselves, and in order to meet the needs predicted for a sustainable society, new materials are targeted. Among the newest candidates is gallium oxide (Ga2O3), which is a wide bandgap semiconductor with an ultra-high breakdown field.
