Welcome to UiO:Energy Forum! An interdisciplinary conference focusing on the energy transition seen from different perspectives. A wide range of sustainable energy topics will be covered, including renewable energy, CCS, innovation policy and sustainable use of materials. This event is free and open for all!
UiO:Energy is funding the development of Thematic Research Groups aimed at addressing challenges related to the transition towards more sustainable energy systems and societies. We invite all researchers interested to a joint information meeting and matchmaking event.
MoZEES Annual Meeting will take place at Thon Hotel Prinsen in Trondheim on 3-4 November. The open part of the conference on 3 November will include parallel sessions on battery- and hydrogen technologies and systems.
Climate, health and the imagination of human futures.
Because of the coronavirus outbreak, we had to postpone the May 2020 conference celebrating what we have learned from Formation and Competence Building of University Academic Developers project. Instead, we are convening an online conference on 29 April 2021, and we look forward to seeing you on Zoom then.
Legal pathways towards climate neutrality and low carbon energy systems: Norwegian perspectives
The UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) estimates that 75% of UK consumers' carbon emissions come from the use of products and services. We also know that 80% of the environmental impacts of those products and services are determined in the early stages of design (EU). These two figures tell us that sustainability is chiefly about stuff and that the impacts of products or services are pretty much designed-in (or out for that matter) from the very outset; “Design is the problem as well as the solution”. Jannicke Hølen, programme leader Innovation for All, and Knut Bang, Senior Advisor of Design at DOGA (Design og arkitektur Norge), propose the following: If environmentalism's success was in spotlighting sustainability problems to the world, the success of design will be in helping deliver solutions.
Hvordan vil kommunene forvalte ansvaret for å beskytte viktige naturtyper og landskap fra inngrep? Hør Include-forskere presentere funn fra sin forskning.
Presentation by Hans Jakob Walnum of ongoing projects at Western Norway Research Institute. Key topics connected to the transformation towards low and zero emissions societies.

Can academic flying be justified in the face of a climate crisis? How can academia change its air travelling habit? Join us in the second Include Lunch seminar, with political scientist Sebastian Jäckle and sociologist Mimi Sheller.
In this final seminar Elisabeth Svennevik will present her thesis investigating car-sharing practices in transitions to sustainable mobility.
Energy Valleys Industry Science Meetup is a series of events created and structured to build the gap between Academia and Industry. We matchthe best researchers from the academic institutions with the most exciting and innovative research and technologies from the industry.
At this digital meetup, each of the MoU parties will bring forth some of the best from their networks together, to create value by joining forces.
UiO:Energy and Energy Valley welcome you to an afternoon of interesting insights, bringing together the best of research from the University and the best of tech from our cluster.
UiO:Energy would like to invite you to an open webinar on energy. This time we will have two interesting presentations on energy in the Global South. Kirsten Milo Nielsen will talk about improvisational solutions to unstable electricity supply in northern Uganda, and Gz. MeeNilankco Theiventhran will present his research on energy conflicts in Sri Lanka.
UiO:Energy would like to invite you to an open lunch where PhDs working within the field of sustainable energy will present their research projects. In this webinar, Heidi Sydnes Egeland from the Scandinavian Institute of Maritime Law and Camilla Louise Würtzen from the Department of Geosciences will talk about juridical and geological challenges related to carbon capture and storage (CCS).
The University of Bergen, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and the University of Oslo have the pleasure of inviting all PhD-students working within the fields of energy to the 2020 interdisciplinary summer school on flexible energy systems.
UiO:Energy would like to invite you to an open lunch where PhDs working within the field of sustainable energy will present their research projects. In this webinar you can learn more about decarbonisation of mobility systems in suburban centres, and “magical” materials that can contribute to solving the climate crisis by converting waste heat into electricity.
Feel like you need some professional input and company these days, without it being too formal or requiring a lot of preparations? A meeting place where you can update each other on what you are working with, ask questions, and discuss while having a cup of coffee and something to eat?
Smart Energy Network and UiO:Energy invite you to an open lecture on blockchain and energy. With the development of the distributed microgrid architecture, renewable energy resources and widespread electric vehicles, smart grids are facing many unprecedented challenges. At this lecture Professor Yan Zhang will elaborate on blockchain technology and its applications for smart energy systems. Tor Krog from Siemens Smart Infrastructure will give a business perspective on the technology.
We invite you to travel in a low-carbon and engaging way from Oslo to the SDG Conference Bergen in February 2020.
An evening with talks from scientists about their research related to harvesting and using energy. The event will be held at Skatten Oslo on Thursday 23th of January at 19.00. This event is meant for the general public so bring your friends and family for an evening of interesting talks from inspiring scientists!
The University of Oslo (UiO) and Energy Valley welcome you to Toppsenteret at Oslo Science Park for an afternoon of interesting insights into the latest technology development and engineering projects of regional industry and research focus of some of UiO’s most innovative scientists.
Day two will focus on energy materials before lunch and CCS (carbon capture and storage) in the afternoon. It will bring perspectives from academia, industry and government, highlighting both challenges and possibilities in the ongoing energy transition.
UiO:Energy and FME INCLUDE invite you to join us for a discussion on the role of science in the ongoing energy transition. How can science contribute to fostering an inclusive energy transition that is sustainable for the climate, for the economy and for society as a whole?
