Interdisciplinary energy research teams & Research Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research

One of NTNU Energy's central activities is to establish and support interdisciplinary research teams that address energy related issues in society. NTNU Energy host nine such teams within the research fields of hydrogen, battery, on- and offshore wind power, CCUS (carbon capture, utilisation and storage), low- and middle-income countries, society, smartgridssolar energy and hydropower.

In addition, NTNU hosts three Research Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research: Hydrocen on hydropower, NTRANS on the role of the energy system in the transition to a zero-emission society, and ZEN on zero emission neighbourhoods in smart cities.
