SINTEF Energy coordinates and participates in several EU Horizon 2020 and FP7 projects. Here are a selection of the projects.
The EU Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) was launched in 2008 and updated in 2015. It coordinates European low-carbon research and innovation activities.
IMPACTS9 will support delivery of the R&I activities outlined in the Implementation Plan for CCUS through the provision of coordination and support to the key public and private stakeholders that are well placed to progress the SET-Plan Implementation Plan actions in the near term.
WATEREYE - O&M tools integrating accurate structural health in offshore energy
The Watereye project will design an advanced monitoring system that will make it possible to remotely detect corrosion levels
Advanced methodology and tools taking advantage of storage and FLEXibility in transmission and distribution grid PLANning.
The FarmConners project supports the implementation and industrialisation of Wind Farm Control (WFC) as an additional feature for the development and operation of wind power plants. It brings together actors in all relevant fields connected with the market uptake of WFC: research institutes, industry and certification agencies. FarmConners will coordinate a reliable assessment of the WFC possibilities, promising more green power from existing and upcoming assets for the price of a software update.
The European energy system is now entering a transition to a low-carbon future in accordance with the COP21 agreements and European Union targets and objectives set for 2020, 2030 and 2050.
The HydroFlex project aims to develop new technology permitting highly flexible operation of hydropower stations. Flexibility of operation here means large ramping rates, frequent start-stops and possibilities to provide a large range of system services. All this within (strict) excellent environmental and social conditions while being economically competitive compared to alternative solutions.
The MegaRoller project will develop and demonstrate a Power Take-Off (PTO) for wave energy converters.
CHEERS - Chinese-European Emission-Reducing Solutions
On 1 October 2017, a new Research and Innovation Action, designated CHEERS, was commenced under the EC-Horizon 2020 programme's Low-Carbon Initiative.
The ambition of the TotalControl project is to develop the next generation of wind power plant (WPP) control tools, improving both WPP control itself and the collaboration between wind turbine (WT) and WPP control.
Evolving from the initial MaRINET project, EU H2020 is currently working with the project MaRINET2 towards a vision of exploiting the renewable energy potential of the oceans.
Demonstration of the next generation standardised integrated cooling and heating packages for commercial and public buildings based on environment-friendly carbon dioxide vapour compression cycles.
The overall objective of the DryFiciency project is to lead energy-intensive sectors of the European manufacturing industry to high energy efficiency and a reduction of fossil carbon emissions by means of waste heat recovery to foster competitiveness, improve security of energy supply and guarantee sustainable production in Europe. The project addresses drying applications. The results are however of major relevance for several other energy-intensive industries such as e.g. pulp and paper industry.
European Research Infrastructure supporting Smart Grid Systems Technology Development, Validation and Roll Out - project
SuperSmart aims to achieve both decisive environmental benefits through a fast implementation of efficient heating and cooling solutions, as well as significant economic benefits through reduced energy use in the supermarket sector all across Europe.
Post-2020 framework for a liberalised electricity market with a large share of Renewable Energy Sources
Accelerating a shift towards deployment of CCS in Europe through a cross-border CO2 transport infrastructure
The Horizon 2020 CEMCAP project brings together CCS interests and research expertise from the cement industry with research expertise on CCS for power plants.
The project offers Europe a fast track evolution towards Smart Grids dissemination and deployment in the distributed electricity grid.
LEANWIND - Logistic efficiencies and naval architecture for wind installations with novel developments
Den overordnede tanken med LEANWIND-prosjektet var å innføre såkalte «lean»-prinsipper til havvindindustrien for å redusere energikostnadene for denne energikilden.
IMPACTS - The impact of the quality of CO2 on transport and storage behaviour
The idea of IMPACTS is to close identified knowledge gaps related to transport and storage of CO2-rich mixtures from various CO2 sources to enable realisation of safer and more cost-efficient solutions for CCS.
ECCO – European value Chain for CO2
ECCO var et forskningsprosjekt med målsetning å fremskynde etableringen av CO2 fangst, transport og lagring verdikjeder, som er en av de sentrale teknologiene for å redusere klimabelastningen fra CO2.
The aim of the IRPWIND is to foster better integration of European research activities in the field of wind energy research with the aim of accelerating the transition towards a low-carbon economy and maintain and increase European competitiveness.
