Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research
The Research Council of Norway provides long-term funding for The FME/CEER Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research.
The purpose is to bring the research at a high international standard, and with the aim of tackling energy-related challenges.
NTNU hosts four FME/CEER
FME CenSES develops fact-based knowledge for strategic decisions relevant for government and industry. The focus is knowledge for a national energy policy, for national and international climate policy, and for strategies of innovation and commercialization.
FME HydroCen aims to ensure and develop research and education in hydropower related technology. The centre provides the hydropower sector world-class knowledge and innovative solutions.
FME NTRANS aims to investigate the development of environmentally friendly energy from a social science perspective, and on the interaction between technology and society.
NTNU is partner in six FME/CEER
FME Bio4Fuels will develop innovative technology to convert biomass and organic residues to sustainable fuels and energy. NMBU – Norwegian University of Life Sciences hosts the Centre.
FME CINELDI develops flexible and robust electricity grid and electrical distribution grid at an acceptable cost. SINTEF Energy Research hosts the Centre.
FME HighEFF works to increase energy efficiency to ensure that Norway has the world’s greenest industries. SINTEF Energy Research hosts the Centre.
FME MoZEES works on battery and hydrogen value chains, systems, and applications where Norway can take a leading position in the future. IFE – Institute for Energy Technology hosts the Centre.
FME NCCS will ensure that Norway remains an international leader in CCS, ensure that we have CO2 storage in the North Sea and contribute to realize a full-scale CCS chain by 2020. SINTEF Energy Research hosts the Centre.
FME Norwegian Research Centre for Solar Cell Technology aims to further developing the Norwegian photovoltaic industry and contributing making solar energy a significant renewable energy source. IFE – Institute for Energy Technology hosts the Centre.
