UiO:Energy has defined four main research areas across the university. These are based on societal needs, solid research teams and external funding opportunities.
- Materials for Energy: We need new materials to make energy use more sustainable and efficient.
- Energy systems: We need a new energy system to balance the multitude of energy sources, such as wind and solar, and producers.
- Carbon Capture and Storage: Improving technologies that will reduce CO2-emissions from fossil fuels.
- Energy Transition and Sustainable Societies: New knowledge about societal, political and judicial aspects is needed to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon society.
