SINTEF Energy Research Energy efficiency in the industry
SINTEF creates future-oriented and innovative solutions for energy efficiency in industry, transport and buildings.
Energy efficiency is a vital tool for reducing energy consumption and thus the need for new power sources. This is also an important area for reducing greenhouse gas emissions when fossil fuels are the energy source. SINTEF conducts research on energy efficiency in industry, transportation and in the construction industry. An important research area is efficiency in Norway's power-intensive industries, and the utilization of waste heat.
The thermal engineering laboratories is the nation's leading laboratory in the field of combustion, refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump, low-temperature and bio processes, CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) and processing, storage and transportation of food products.
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.
Lightweight Offshore Condenser Skid
The goal of the project Compact offshore condenser skid is to reduce the weight of such a skid by up to 50 percent.
Norwegian scientists will teach Europe to make snow
Trondheim: Norwegian researchers believe that it will be possible to make environmentally-friendly snow at above-zero temperatures. Now they have the backing of Europe and the skiing industry in their bid to save the sport from climate change.
Destination Brussels – with climate facts in his luggage
SINTEF’s climate change ambassador Nils Røkke is on his way to Brussels looking forward to a new job and new assignments. He has been appointed as Chair of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). This in a world in which the threats posed by climate change are increasingly being portrayed as “fake news”.
