Heat pumps and refrigeration systems on board, naturally!
Through several research projects, SINTEF, together with NTNU and our industry partners, aims to support an agile adoption of natural refrigerants in heat pumps and refrigeration systems for the maritime sector, replacing substances that contribute to global warming.
Wave energy integration into power grids: future requirements and opportunities
Wave energy is still at an early stage of development. By using our experience with wind and solar, we can anticipate the opportunities and requirements for integrating wave energy into the electrical grid.
Staying on the right path: finding key metrics for successful development of wave energy converters
Wave energy converters (WECs) are devices that harness the energy from ocean waves and convert it into another form of power which is…
Scenarios for implementation of Energy Communities in Norway
The ongoing energy transition brings new opportunities for utilisation of distributed energy resources (DER) and for the evolution in the role of end-users from passive consumers to active customers, who both produce and consume energy.
