As we work towards operating cruise ships with zero emissions, it is important that we reduce the energy use of the hotel systems on board. We have modelled the hotel system of a cruise ship in a building simulation tool in order to evaluate various energy efficiency solutions, including passive measures, heat pumps and thermal energy storage. Passive measures utilise the building’s structure or materials to reduce energy consumption, for example by increasing or decreasing solar heat gains.
The use of technologies, including machine learning in measuring milk components of individual cows may ensure early detection of diseases and maximization of…
Instead of building new grid, utilizing flexibility in industrial processes could be a cheaper and faster way of integrating variable power production.
Solutions exist already today to make Norwegian industry more efficient and unlock large amounts of energy in a way that is largely uncontroversial. Why, then, are energy efficiency measures not being deployed at a quicker pace?
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.
New technology can help reducing food loss and waste, and contribute to a sustainable food systems and future food security.
