Three projects involving Norwegian and Indian partners are being supported to the tune of NOK 18 million by the Research Council of Norway. The topics range from geothermal energy and carbon capture and storage to wave-power plants, and SINTEF is leading two of the projects. One of them will perform modelling and laboratory trials aimed at improving heat extraction from the ground, increasing CO2 underground storage capacity and enhancing natural gas recovery rates. The other will use advanced mathematical modelling techniques to exploit India’s wave-power potential. The Norwegian Geotechnical Institute is leading efforts to demonstrate how geothermal energy can be practically exploited and how heat can be stored underground.
