Energy efficiency

The Energy Efficiency research theme develops highly efficient energy services technologies to support the low cost and low carbon exploration, production and transport of natural gas. Technologies and systems are being explored that, for example, employ waste heat recovery, provide more efficient primary cycles, and improve the efficiency of power generation with carbon capture.

The research seeks ways to reduce fuel consumption, fuel cost and greenhouse gas emissions by advancing efficient technologies designed for this challenging environment, improving the integrated performance of barges and FPSO’s (Floating Production Storage and Offloading).

    Finding ways to electrify the industrial sector

    9 October 2017

    Energy is used in the industrial sector for a wide range of purposes, such as in assembly and manufacturing lines and for heating and cooling process. The sector accounts for nearly a quarter of global carbon dioxide emissions and is one of the most important sectors of the economy to decarbonise. Sandro Luh, a student […]
