Solar thermal energy

Solar thermal projects

The main Network Projects have been established through the Norad financed programs for collaboration on higher education. On the solar side, we had close communications between a NOMA (master education program) and a NUFU (research program) project, which led to the establishment of a Renewable Energy project (Energy and Petroleum Program, EnPe) combining both research and education.
Information on the current EnPe project “Capacity Building in Renewable Energy Education and Research” can be found here: EnPE project 2015-2019
