The role of the energy system in the transition to a renewable society
With Asgeir Tomasgard and Kari Espegren
An overall perspective and interdisciplinary cooperation are essential if Norway is to carry out a satisfactory renewable energy transition, thus meeting its international environmental obligations in a way that also benefits ordinary people and society in general. In this episode of EnerView, director of CenSES and professor at NTNU, Asgeir Tomasgard, will explain the energy system’s central role, and why political innovation is important. We will also meet Kari Espegren, Head of Department and Senior Researcher at the Department of Energy Engineering, who will tell us about how energy researchers work.
Scientific scenarios - what will the future bring?
With Stefan Jaehnert and Ingeborg Graabak
The development of scientific scenarios is an important tool for those who make decisions about how to achieve a low emissions society by 2050. In Norway, this is primarily a question of how to reduce emissions from the oil and gas sector, which is an important part of both industry and the transport sector, thought the international situation is somewhat more complex. In this episode of EnerView, Stefan Jaehnert and Ingeborg Graabak, both researchers at Sintef, one of Europe's largest independent research organizations, will help us understand what the future will bring.

With Roger Sørheim and Øyvind Bjørgum
Norway's desire to become a low-emission society by 2050 is entirely dependent on a successful development of so-called "radical technology” that leads to major and rapid changes in society. Changes must come quickly, both in terms of the production and the consumption of energy, for the energy transition to renewables to be achieved. This will require a better synergy between energy and industrial policy. In this episode we will hear from Professor Roger Sørheim from the Department of Industrial Economics and Technology Management at NTNU, and from his colleague, Associate Professor Øyvind Bjørgum.

This episode of EnerView investigates what politicians and policy makers can do to help us create a low carbon society. We'll hear from Tomas Moe Skjølsvold, associate professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), and from Kari Espegren,research leader energy systems analysis at the Institute for Energy Technology’s renewable energy systems department. We'll also visit a zero emission house with sociologist Marius Korsnes, from NTNU's Department of Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture, to find out what it's like to live in one.

With Kari Espegren, Pernille Seljom, Tomas Skjølsvold and Asgeir Tomasgard.
This episode of EnerSikt addresses different energy systems within the market framework. We will hear about where the energy will come from in a future sustainable society, and here we are joined by Kari Espegren, research director energy systems analysis at IFE, Institute for Energy Technology, and by Professor Tomas Moe Skjølsvold from the Faculty of Humanities at NTNU. We will also hear about how much energy we will need in the future, and here we are joined by CenSES leader Professor Asgeir Tomasgard and from IFE researcher Pernille Seljom.
With Gunnar Eskeland, Christian Skar and Asgeir Tomasgard.
Economic incentives, made up of market and pricing mechanisms alongside policy and regulatory measures, can be designed to promote energy production and consumption that is both efficient and environmentally sustainable. We’ll discover how, from Gunnar Eskeland, professor of environmental economics at the Norwegian School of Economics in Bergen, and Asgeir Tomasgard, CenSES director and professor at the Department of Industrial Economics and Technology Management at NTNU, The Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim. And we’ll hear from Adjunct Associate Professor Christian Skar, also from NTNU, who will tell us about economic modelling.

The transport sector accounts for about a quarter of Norway’s total greenhouse gas emissions. Decarbonising cars and trucks becomes harder, the larger the vehicle gets. Rapid and dramatic change will require zero emissions battery or fuel cell electric technology to replace the present combustion engine. In this episode of EnerView, we’ll hear from Lasse Fridstrøm, senior research economist at the Institute of Transport Economics TØI, from Gunnar Eskeland, professor of environmental economics at the Norwegian School of Economics NHH, and from Øystein Ulleberg, principal scientist at the Renewable Energy Systems Department, Institute for Energy Technology (IFE).

Maritime shipping is one of the few industries Norway has a chance to influence internationally, in particular by identifying how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from boats, ferries and ships.
In this episode of EnerView, we hear from Lasse Fridstrøm, senior research economist at Institute of Transport Economics, TØI, from Gunnar S. Eskeland, professor of environmental economics at the Norwegian School of Economics, NHH and Øystein Ulleberg, principal scientist at the Renewable Energy Systems Department, Institute for Energy Technology, IFE.
New wind farms can help Norway treble its current energy generation capacity by about 2040-2050. Norway can then use its hydropower to facilitate a pan-European transition to renewable energy, but it will not happen automatically.
In this episode, we'll hear from Professor Gunnar S. Eskeland, environment economist, The Norwegian School of Economics, NHH, from Stefan Jaehnert, researcher at SINTEF, one of Europe's largest independent research organisations, and from Professor Asgeir Tomasgard, Department of Industrial Economics and Technology Management at NTNU, The Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
Ordinary people who invest in solar panels on their roofs and become active participants in the electricity market, can both contribute to and benefit from the transition to renewable energy.
We’ll hear from Marius Korsnes and William Throndsen, from the Department for interdisciplinary studies of culture at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU, from Ove Wolfgang, energy systems researcher at SINTEF, and from Jan Bråthen, special advisor at Statnett.
Europe should consider reforming the electricity market to prevent the transition to renewable energy from causing black-outs.
We’ll hear from Mette Bjørndal, professor of business and management science at Norwegian School of Economics, NHH, and Lasse Torgersen, head of department, corporate strategy and analysis, Hydro.
