SINTEF meets the EUs delegation to Norway

The meeting took place at the SINTEF Energy Lab at Blaklia on Wednesday 28th September. Among the topics was how to leverage national research priorities through pan European cooperation.
– We could have been discussing for hours, this is interesting, said the EU’s Ambassador to Norway, Helen Campbell.

The meeting started with the big picture

President Inge Gran at SINEF Energy Research gave a presentation of SINTEFs many research activities within the energy field, a presentation, which among many is known as the “energy kingdom”.

A major research effort into tomorrow’s digital power grids

A major research effort into tomorrow’s digital power grids

How will a future electricity grid manage the demands of induction cooking, charging electric cars and roof-installed solar panels? The answer is Smart Grids, which involves digitisation of the electricity grid.

The aim of a new research centre called CINELDI (Centre for Intelligent Electricity Distribution – to empower the future Smart Grid) is to develop systems as part of tomorrow’s adaptable, robust and intelligent energy system.

One step closer to European CCS deployment: GATEWAY pilot case chosen

One step closer to European CCS deployment: GATEWAY pilot case chosen

The GATEWAY team have chosen the pilot case for a European CO2 infrastructure, and invites stakeholders to an alignment meeting in Brussels next week.

GATEWAY aims to develop a pilot case for cross-border transport infrastructure connecting major European CO2 sources and sinks. Much has happened since the GATEWAY kick-off in November 2015; numerous meetings and working hours have been used to evaluate our different pilot case alternatives in the light of surrounding trends and developments.

And – GATEWAY continues playing an important role in getting CCS off the ground in Europe.
