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.
ELEGANCY – Enabling a Low-Carbon Economy via Hydrogen and CCS
As the only technology that can substantially reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels, CCS is an essential component in essentially all IPCC scenarios that limit global warming to below 2.3°C.
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.
TheONE - design of wood burning stoves
The aim of the project is to develop a standardized wood stove combustion chamber for each industry partner, ultra-flexible and capable of complete and clean combustion independently of the wood stove exterior design, to significantly save development time and total production costs for manufacturers.
NorEUnergy - Establishment of Norwegian-EU networks in the bioenergy field
NorEUnergy II will focus on increasing the mobilization and participation of Norwegian actors in the field of bioenergy, as one of the prioritized scientific areas in the new integrated SET-Plan.
ProTrafo - Next Generation Protection of Transformers
The transformer is one of the key components in any electric power system. Its purpose is to convert between different voltage levels, thereby enabling transmission of power over long distances, and the distribution of power to the end customer. The failure of a transformer leads to substantial costs for the owner and often loss of power as well.
Short-circuit Current Making in Medium Voltage Switches with Environmentally Friendly Gas
ABB EPMV in Skien manufactures 12 - 40.5 kV compact, gas insulated switchgears for the world market. Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) gas is used as the electrical insulation- and current interruption medium. However, since SF6 is an extremely strong "greenhouse gas", restrictions on its use are anticipated.
IntegER - Integration of energy storage in the distribution grid
The project's overall objective is to contribute with new knowledge and practical guidelines that enables energy storage (mainly electric batteries) to be used and integrated into the Norwegian distribution grid.
