Renewable energy

At IFE, we put a high emphasis on contributing to the development of renewable energy to reduce greenhouse gases and improving everyday life. We have the prerequisites and highly skilled researchers to solve tomorrow’s challenges, as well as seventy years of experience in material research reaching deep into the materials at atomic level.

Our research on materials and physics has provided results and experience, making IFE one of Norway’s frontrunners for the production, modeling, storage, and smart use of renewable energy. We contribute to the optimization of solar cells, wind parks, hydrogen research and systems for storage and use of energy in buildings and within different industries, and power-to-x for CO2 utilization.
