SINTEF Energy Research Smart Grids
The energy system of the future
The energy system of the future will incorporate higher levels of production from renewable sources and greater consumer flexibility. It must also be robust and reliable. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) will be used extensively to monitor, regulate and automate the grid.
Smart Grid Laboratory
NTNU and SINTEF have built a new National Smart Grid Laboratory in Trondheim with funding from the Research Council of Norway in cooperation with the Artic University of Norway and Smart Innovation Østfold.
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.
ENERGYTICS will demonstrate how machine learning and artificial intelligence can increase the value of the new smart meters that are currently being installed in all Norwegian homes.
Building the foundation in Trondheim for the green transition
For the first time, a major European research infrastructure project is being led by a country from outside the EU.
European researchers want to extend funding for renewables
An international team of researchers has concluded that operational funding should continue to be provided for the production of renewable energy in Europe, provided that such support is progressively reduced over time.
SINTEF awarded three new Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research
The Research Council of Norway has granted funding to eight new Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME). Each new centre is guaranteed an annual allocation of NOK 15‒25 million for up to eight years.
