SINTEF creates the future’s energy solutions
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
SINTEF has decades of research experience in environmentally friendly and energy- and cost-effective bioenergy
SINTEF contributes to a reliable, environmentally friendly and cost-effective energy system
Electric power components
SINTEF carries out research for Norwegian and international electrotechnical industries, energy suppliers and maritime businesses. We offer our customers international expertise with advanced laboratories and measuring equipment.
SINTEF conducts research on how hydrogen could become an important energy carrier in a low-carbon society. Hydrogen can be an important energy carrier to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in a range of sectors, particularly transport, but potentially also in power generation and as a production input for industry. SINTEF is working in key areas in the whole value chain for hydrogen, from production to transport and storage, and end use.
Hydropower is by far the main source of electricity production in Norway today and will remain so in the future. SINTEF has extensive research expertise in hydropower.
The energy system of the future will incorporate higher levels of production from renewable sources and greater consumer flexibility. It must also be robust and reliable. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) will be used extensively to monitor, regulate and automate the grid.
