The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the Research Council of Norway invite to the Seminar

Energy for the future

Access to energy is important in all areas of society and the demand for energy is continuously increasing all over the world. Environmental and climate challenges require a rapid transition to production and use of renewable energy resources. However, at the same time the world will depend on fossil fuels for many years.

The seminar will present and discuss topics for future research collaboration between Brazilian and Norwegian institutions within production, distribution and use of energy. The topics that will be covered are (among other things): production and storage of renewable energy, how renewable energy will change the energy landscape, development of new systems for efficient distribution and use of energy, and new technology for environment friendly offshore production of oil&gas.
