PANTERA (PAN European Technology Energy Research Approach) is a EU H2020 project aimed at setting up a European forum composed of Research & Innovation stakeholders active in the fields of smart grids, storage and local energy systems, including policy makers, standardisation bodies and experts, representing the EU energy system.
Norway's position as an energy-exporting country is changing due to decarbonization of the European energy market. To fulfil the Paris Agreement, CO2 emissions must be reduced in all parts of the energy value chain from generation to end-use. There is a surge to replace fossil-fuelled energy generation with carbon-free alternatives and renewable generation, and a need to ramp up deployment of CO2 capture and storage (CCS). This ongoing transition of the energy system creates both opportunities and challenges for the utilization of Norway's fossil energy and renewable electric power resources.
Prediction of water liquid and vapour migration for mitigating corrosion under insulation
PCM-STORE gathers dairies, fish industries, food processing plants, supermarkets, technology suppliers and power grid operators to work towards a common goal: Solving energy storage challenges in support of a more energy-efficient industrial future.
ElMar - Electrification of maritime transport and the ports of the future
Challenges related to the electrification of maritime transport are now being mapped in a new SINTEF project with port authorities, grid companies, energy companies and ship-owners as partners. The aim is to reduce emissions by making the establishment and use of shore power and battery charging facilities more attractive.
OptiNett - Optimal handling of Challenges in low voltage Public power supply
In many places, the low-voltage grid in Norway is so weak that secure disconnection in the case of short circuits in the network or in the customer's installations cannot be guaranteed.
