Climate frustration led three former NTNU students to quit their secure and well-paying jobs. Instead, they developed a digital toolbox for the green shift. Now the world is knocking on their door.
When energy researchers carry out experiments to investigate safe and efficient CO2 transport on the roof of the thermal power engineering laboratories at Gløshaugen, Trondheim, the noise they make will be like a jet engine.
According to a new report, many years of research effort have resulted in significant reductions in the cost of full-scale carbon capture and storage.
What is the best timing for the various hydroelectric plants to produce power? NTNU and SINTEF have developed an efficient and profitable simulation tool to make the most of hydropower generation.
Even electric motors can be made more environmentally friendly. A Norwegian start-up company is on it.
Humans have developed machines that can learn on their own. Machines using artificial intelligence develop “behaviours” based on their interpretation of data. But we know less about how they teach themselves. Professor Harald Martens has created the start-up company Idletechs to develop a technology that will make artificial intelligence more understandable for the rest of us.
Speaking Norwegian is important for many Norwegian jobs, but conventional language classes may not prepare people with the kinds of words and expressions they need. A new app now provides training in specialized expressions.
Ships with wings? Researchers are piloting this NTNU-spawned technology on new coastal cruise ships now being tested in Trondheim. The wings – or foils – use less fuel and make the journey more comfortable for passengers.
Can Norwegian hydropower and natural gas play a role in Europe’s future power market? Results of a recent study show that Europe needs to craft a new and shared vision for energy policy for Norway to be a player.
