NTNU Team Hydrogen

NTNU Team Hydrogen is a team of world experts on Hydrogen Energy. The team consists of researchers from different disciplines, departments and faculties across NTNU that works within the Hydrogen area. One of the main tasks of the team is to develop new research programs and projects both nationally and internationally with academia, research organisations and industry, and to coordinate Hydrogen activities within NTNU. We are also educating and training research leaders, innovating, providing solutions, and stimulating the industry.

Read NTNU's position paper on the European Commission’s Strategy for Smart Sector Integration (pdf).

The Norwegian government has published a strategy on the governments further work on hydrogen. Read the strategy Regjeringens hydrogenstrategi - på vei mot lavutslippssamfunnet (pdf). The strategy is in Norwegian.

The project proposal H2 Coop storage on “Development of tools enabling the deployment and management of a multi-energy Renewable Energy Community with hybrid storage” has received funding from the Smart Energy Systems ERA-Net - Joint Call 2019 on energy storage solutions (MICall19).

The project will focus on the safety aspects and standards to apply with H2 near or in places of life (such as hotels, households etc.) and especially with the storage of H2. More specifically, the project aims to

  1. support the design of H2 equipment and security systems with specific risk assessment results
  2. define advanced monitoring techniques to dynamically assess the current risk level and allow improved planning of inspection and maintenance
  3. fill the knowledge gap on the safety of gaseous and liquid H2 for applications such as ship and pipeline transportation as well as storage.

NTNU is represented by Nicola Paltrinieri and Federico Ustolin.

Hydrogen fuel is being put forward as a zero-emissions alternative for many of the world’s biggest polluting sectors, such as transport and industry. However, the amount of energy that would be required to produce enough hydrogen fuel to power these sectors globally – using renewable electricity – is astronomical.

However, researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology believe they have cracked a method of producing large quantities of hydrogen fuel using waste heat from industrial processes.
