Energy Efficiency with Nanotechnology is a part of Nordic Top-level Research Initiative. Nordic Innovation facilitates cooperation between Nordic nanotechnology experts who will bring their research results closer to the market.

Nordic top level research in energy efficiency with nanotechnology

Norway | Posted on August 7th, 2012

The Top-level Research Initiative is a Nordic platform for cooperation with central players from research, innovation, business and industry. With a programme budget of 53 million Euro, the initiative currently funds 31 Nordic projects amounting to a collective value of some 94 million Euro.

In the Nordic countries the focus has been particular on energy efficiency related to sectors like the building sector, transport sector, energy conversion, transportation and use.

It is essential to support the research and development in the nanotechnological field so that companies in the Nordic countries can benefit as much as possible from the new opportunities offered by nanotechnology and compete on the worldwide market.

The funding program "Energy efficiency with nanotechnology" runs under the Top-level Research Initiative. It facilitates user-driven development of sustainable energy solutions enabled by nanotechnology approaches for commercialization. Four projects received a total 5,5 million Euro, total budget of the projects is 15 million EUR. The projects run for three years from 2010 until 2013.

Uppsala University Project AB leads the project "Research towards Nordic industrialization of the Salt-and-Paper Battery" the objective of which is to carry out the research and development necessary to form the foundation for future commercialisation of a new type of paper-based, environment-friendly supercapacitors and battery.

Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has formed a Nordic consortium that aims to find the most energy efficient semiconductor nanowire solar cells with an optimum design solution for low cost. The project is called "Nano Coatings for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells".

The solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) suffers from an operational lifetime that is far short of commercial requirements. The problem is being tackled in the project led by Chalmers University of Technology.

Finally, Institute for Surface Chemistry in Sweden together with its partners aims to develop sustainable and efficient methods based on nanotechnology to reduce problems and costs with ice build-up in their project TopNANO.
