Powerful maritime batteries and quantum dots for high-efficiency solar cells are among the research topics addressed by the 25 projects recently awarded a total of NOK 239 million in funding from the Research Council of Norway.

The funding is being allocated under the Research Council’s Large-scale Programme for Energy Research (ENERGIX), and competition was fierce. By the February deadline the programme had received 122 applications seeking a total of NOK 1 050 million. But in the end, only one in five proposed projects were granted funding.

The winning project proposals span the thematic priority areas of bioenergy, solar energy, hydropower, wind energy, energy policy, energy systems, raising energy efficiency, and batteries.
