Catapulting Renewable Energy Solutions at Stord

Do you like wind turbines, fuel cells, and hydrogen? If you do, you would have liked our visit to the Sustainable Energy Catapult at Stord this week.

GCE Ocean Technology’s renewable energy resource group gathered at our site-visit to Stord to learn about the latest innovations and projects in the field.

A Tour of Energy House

During the visit, we received a tour of the Energy House and were presented with some of the ongoing projects.

Moreover, the testing capabilities of the Zephyros turbine were demonstrated, covering everything from anchoring to monitoring and maintenance.

We also learned about the use of artificial intelligence in energy system management and the future of hydrogen production and storage.

Testing in Energy House allows you to sell with confidence, Senior Project Developer Matthias Kock at the Sustainable Energy Norwegian Catapult Center.

Collaboration Across the Entire Value Chain

The projects and testing facilities that were shown span across the entire renewable energy value chain, from production to distribution, storage and use.

Across these fields there are several challenges to be solved in collaboration between research and industry, and the resource group will continue discussing these to identify possible projects and subjects to share experiences and learn more about.

Get in Touch

We are very grateful to the Sustainable Energy Catapult at Stord for hosting us and sharing their knowledge and experience with us.
