SINTEF and Sustainable Energy signed a letter of intent that will guarantee Norwegian industry access to relevant research and testing infrastructure. This will be necessary for realising the green shift.
esearch areas that are particularly relevant to this collaboration include offshore wind power and energy production, future energy carriers for the maritime sector, new energy systems, CO2 capture and storage, hydrogen technology, and floating solar power.
Norwegian industry must undergo a transition, and this collaboration will accelerate that. Together, we will ensure that relevant testing infrastructure within areas that are crucial for the green shift is made available to Norwegian companies
said Willie Wågen, CEO of Sustainable Energy.
Together, the partners will work to improve the framework conditions for guaranteeing new investments in testing facilities and research infrastructure.
“By making this available, we will contribute to the faster development of new, green solutions. In addition, becoming more knowledgeable about data and research challenges from technology testing will ensure that our research is up to date and relevant for future industry,” added Jack Ødegård, research director in SINTEF.
Furthermore, Mona Mølnvik, research director in SINTEF, explained that the two partners have:
A concrete goal of contribute to more Norwegian and EU projects in order to benefit Norwegian industry and strengthen Norwegian companies’ international competitive ability
