Fields and focus areas

The field of energy and process engineering deals with power production and conversion, transfer and distribution, as well as the end-use of energy both offshore, sub sea and inland. This involves everything from indoor environment and energy use in buildings to oil hydraulics, gas technology , combustion, bio-energy, refrigeration , as well as the thermal processing of foodstuffs.

A selection of research projects

ENCAP : CO2 capture, with a European perspective.

DYNAMIS : CO2 management and profitability in the value chain

BIGCO2 : CO2 ”rinsing” of power plant exhaust.

Current projects

Current research activities at the Department of Energy and Process Engineering include:

Centre for Renewable Energy

Research includes these fields: wave generated energy, small scale hydroelectric power, wind power, solar energy, bioenergy, as well as energy generated from waste, hydrogen, salt and heat pumps. The Centre for Renewable Energy is owned by NTNU, SINTEF, IFE and UiO. Website: http://www.sffe.no/
