About Energy systems
Activities range from strategic energy analyses at European level to the integration of several local energy carriers, from analyses of the Nordic power pool to the simulation of rapid electric transients. or from the design of tailored solutions for energy trading to monopoly control and greater efficiency in the distribution network. While historically focusing on electricity, all types of energy carriers and environmental consideration can now be included in such power analyses.
On the one hand we have specialist expertise, on the other we have researchers that work well with others when facing cross-disciplinary challenges of considerable complexity.
The process of energy market deregulation is well under way not just in Europe but in many other parts of the world. As Norway was among the front runners in this process, this has given the Department a head's start in this area. Another area of international interest where the Department has extensive know-how is environmental matters and the related local and global considerations.
The department is located in Sem Saelands Road 11.

The greenest energy is the type you never use
SINTEF contributes to a reliable, environmentally friendly and cost-effective energy system
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 .
Our aims are to assist in developing cities that are good to live in, and to promote massive services innovation
We participate in developing future transport systems.
