Resource and energy collaborations

Excess heat is a by-product of many industrial processes. Increasingly, manufacturers are trying to find ways to use that heat internally to increase their energy efficiency. But sometimes they just don't need the extra heat. The most obvious solution – from an environmental point of view – is to try and find … Read more

New project: Sustainable wood stoves through stove, building integration and value chain optimisation

The background for our new project is that bioenergy is important in Norway and wood log combustion has long traditions, constituting above 40% of the total use of biomass for stationary energy purposes, and accounting for about 12% of the domestic heating. Increase security of supply and reduce power peaks Using wood logs is important for security of … Read more

Protecting the Power Grid from Solar Storms

Understanding the potential impact of solar storms on ageing power grid infrastructure will help us put in place tools and processes to minimise that impact. Geomagnetic storms that impact the power grid are rare. But they do happen, and when they happen the consequences can be severe. … Read more

Machine learning can predict faults in the Norwegian power system

The EarlyWarn project aims to predict faults in the power system by developing models that use big data, machine learning and domain knowledge to analyse historical power quality data. So far, the model’s predictive ability has been solely based on analysing power quality data from the period before a fault occurs. While the results have indicated … Read more

This is how we reduce data centers’ carbon footprint

Do you think of crypto currencies and streaming services when you hear the word “data center”? You’re not alone. But they are so much more than that. Co-author: Sverre Foslie, Research Scientist, SINTEF Energy Research Yes, they are the home of your favorite Netflix show. But video-meetings, autonomous vehicles, smart cities, online banking services and health journals are just a …

High voltage subsea cables:
Reducing costs by simplifying design

High voltage subsea cables are crucial to electrify oil platforms – and for many other uses such as connecting floating wind farms. Currently, they are quite expensive. LowEmission is trying to find new designs to reduce their costs. … Read more

High Temperature Heat Pumps
as a Way to Decarbonise Norwegian Industry

Many industries requiring both cooling and heating currently have separate systems for the tasks. Integrated high temperature heat pumps and thermal storage tanks for combined heating and cooling allow for much better energy efficiency. This results in a corresponding reduction in energy consumption and CO2 emissions in the industry. Results of a successful integration of high … Read more

How will wireless dynamic charging of electric vehicles impact the grid?

In the future, it will be possible to charge electric vehicles while driving them. This technology is called wireless dynamic charging, and involves coils under the asphalt and in the vehicle. The advantages are the obvious economy of time, cars that require smaller batteries and the removal of wires. In theory, …

Local energy communities:
When neighbourhoods become electricity producers

More and more sectors of society are being electrified to reach the global climate targets. This increases the need for renewable electricity, requires large investments and poses new challenges for the grid. Power consumers joining forces to form local energy communities can constitute one of the solutions to these challenges. Research project FINE … Read more
