In addition, we offer lab tours to politicians, decision makers and industry representatives and put them into direct contact with leading researchers in the field. Moreover, we give research based advice regarding energy related issues to politicians and others who impact the development of society.

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 in the energy field that address energy related issues in society. NTNU Energy host eight 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, smartgrids and solar energy.

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.
