Renewable energy Hydropower
SINTEF PROMOTES EFFICIENT AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY ENERGY PRODUCTION FROM HYDROPOWER
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.
Smart Grid Laboratory
NTNU and SINTEF have built a new National Smart Grid Laboratory in Trondheim with funding from the Research Council of Norway in cooperation with the Artic University of Norway and Smart Innovation Østfold.
HVDC Inertia provision
Future power systems are facing new challenges when traditional thermal generation units are replaced by renewable energy sources with power electronic grid interfaces.
PRIBAS – Pricing Balancing Services in the Future Nordic Power Market
The Nordic power market is in transition, both in terms of technologies used for power generation and market structures.
EMPS - multi area power-market simulator
EMPS (EFI's Multi-area Power-market Simulator) is a tool for forecasting and planning in electricity markets. It has been developed for optimization and simulation of hydrothermal power systems with a considerable share of hydro power. It takes into account transmission constraints and hydrological differences between major areas or regional subsystems.
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.
Norwegian to lead energy research in Europe
Nils Røkke, Director of Sustainability at SINTEF, is the new Chairman of the European Energy Research Alliance.
