Norwegian University of Science and Technology - Centre for Renewable Energy

  Copyright: © E.ON ERC

Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is the largest institution in Norway for engineering education. The university offers a broad academic curriculum with undergraduate and graduate programs. The Centre for Sustainable Energy Studies (CenSES) was established in 2011. CenSes is a research facility for national research on renewable energies including policymaking, energy systems and markets, innovation and scenario development. Their goal to develop environmentally friendly energy is supported by national and international researchers as well as public and private decision-makers.
