TCCS-12: A Record-Breaking CCS Conference

From 19-21 June, the global CCS community gathered in Trondheim for the twelfth Trondheim CCS conference (TCCS-12). This was a record-breaking conference for TCCS in many ways, with the largest number of participants attended, nationalities represented, and abstracts submitted. While the conference included topics from the entire CCS value chain, the main messages conveyed were the necessity of international collaboration, increased R&D activity, and strong government policies.

Preparing for zero-emission buildings at sea

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.

Cybersecurity in the electricity grid

The electricity grid is undergoing a digital transition to become intelligent, robust, and cost-efficient. We need to understand the threats and vulnerabilities related to the digital transition of the electricity grid with the aim of improved control over the cyber risks.
