RESEARCH AREAS

Digitalization  

Research coordinator: Hoai Phuong Ha
Deputy: Filippo Maria Bianchi
While a sustainable energy transition is necessary to research climate goals, certain parts of the development of renewable energy systems still need to be overcome. Examples include voltage stability and the capacity of the electrical distribution grid, due to the varying loads that renewable systems typically produce. Technology shifts, such as smart metering and ‘Internet of Things’, create both opportunities and new levels of complexity in contracts and data management.  

A substantial part of the challenge emanates from the increased need for flexibility – the untapped potential of having access to both smaller and larger networks of resources to avoid unecessary investments in energy infrastructures. This is where digital technology comes in: With digitalization, we can tackle the challenges of renewable eneregy and fossil-free transport by developing innovative solutions in an integrated local energy system. We can also develop market mechanism for energy trading, enabled by digital platforms and advanced algorithms to optimize electricity usage.  

Digitalization is based on research areas of strategic importance such as supercomputing (HPC), artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), and cybersecurity, as highlighted in the new EU Digital Europe Programme.

Research coordinator:  
Deputy: 
One of the current challenges of renewable energy is to use the network of different types of generators and distribution systems efficiently. If building enough generators was the only thing needed in order to transform our society to renewable sources, we would have been far further in the process by now.

But the challenge of connecting such a multitude of differently sized installations, is an enormous undertaking. Imagine what is needed to combine the electricity from a couple of solar panels on a roof top with that of a giant wind park in the middle of the North Sea, in such a way that they can run everything from a mega factory – to your toaster. In addition to vastly different installation sizes and locations, many devices are delivering constantly varying output, depending on weather conditions. This needs to be balanced out to deliver predictable amounts of power with stable voltage. And to make matters worse, every time someone turns on a light or charges their electric car, or a factory starts up their machinery, the voltage on the grid is altered. To compensate for all of these constant varying factors, there is a quite complex layer of technology between generation and consumption. This layer is currently where much of the cutting edge technology in the field is being developed and deployed. Usually under the term smartgrid.  

The smartgrid optimizes how power is distributed and used. An example of this can be found in the RENEW project on Senja. Homes are being installed with smart meters and intelligent monitoring systems, so that the temperature of bathroom floors, hot water tanks and other appliances can be altered slightly to compensate for fluctuations in the grid. In this way it is not necessary to do every adjustment on the generator side.

Carbon capture and biomass utilization

Research coordinator: Hans C. Bernstein  
Deputy: Katja Karppinen  
Science and technology that address the climate crisis are now a priority for all, but Arctic societies are unique stakeholders because we are experiencing the most rapid changes on the planet. Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are at a historic high, recently surpassing 400 ppm for the first time in human history.

We are also contending with historic atmospheric methane gas concentrations, which has 84-times greater heat trapping effects than carbon dioxide. The people of the Arctic  – together with the world  – have reached the understanding that emission reductions are necessary for sustainability but we must also invest in new technologies for carbon capture, sequestration and utilization. Biological organisms, such as plants, algae and bacteria, can capture carbon and integrate into their metabolites and biomass. In plants, the molecules are mostly integrated as sugar molecules into cell wall components, such as cellulose. The annual production of cellulose through photosynthesis is estimated to be 15 x 1012 tons, forming a major sink and reservoir for carbon that can be utilized for sustainable bioenergy production.  

How will ARC provide solutions? We support research, education and industrial cooperation with the ultimate goal of controlling the accumulation of carbon from the atmosphere and aid its utilization for bioenergy solutions. We believe that fostering fundamental science and innovation together with raising public awareness will lead to measurable action. ARC’s mission is unique because of its focus on social and economic drivers in high latitude societies.

Projects and activities 

  • Arctic Algae Genomes: Gaining genomic insight into Arctic microalgae carbon capture technologies. This project shall resolve the unique genomes that underpin the successful carbon capture and utilization efforts being performed here in northern Norway. This strategic investment by ARC will provide a permanent resource that will enable future optimization of microalgae cultivation conditions to promote the production of marine biomass from industrial waste CO2. Fully annotated genome sequences of these industrially relevant arctic diatoms will enable ARC researchers to provide the next level of biological insight required to optimize the process and discover new biotechnological applications such as the synthesis of higher value bioproducts for food, feed and sustainable bioproducts. 

  • Plant biomass consortium: Although the major potential of lignocellulose biomass for bioenergy production, energy is not easily available due to the complex structure and wide range of chemical bonds and cross-linkages between molecules in plant cell wall. In the consortium we study possibilities in the cell wall degradation process using new biological sources of degradative enzymes. Team: Associate Professor Katja Karppinen, PhD student Hilary Edema, Post Doc Furqan Ashraf, and Post Doc Amos Samkumar.

  • ABSORB - Carbon Storage from Arctic Biomes: The aims for the project are to study biological processes unique to Arctic with dual focus to both marine microorganisms and terrestrial plant-root systems. We investigate mechanisms of carbon channeling into marine and terrestrial biomass and recalcitrant compounds and ultimately aim to establish new biotechnologies and innovations for carbon capture and utilization (food, feed, bioproducts). Click here to read more about ABSORB. 
  • Diatoms with Increased Carbon Capture Efficiency (DICCE). In the DICCE-project, researchers aim to innovate new carbon capture and utilization technology by domesticating Arctic diatom: prokaryote communities and stimulating genome-encoded properties that promote CO2 uptake and the bio-physical properties that promote carbon-trapping in microbial aggregates.

  • EcoTech4CCU workshop. EcoTech4CCU was a 3-day workshop generously sponsored by Mr. Fredrik Paulsen through The University of the Arctic (UArctic) and hosted by UiT – The Arctic University of Norway and The Arctic Centre for Sustainable Energy (ARC). The goals were to provide an inspirational educational experience for graduate students, present the state-of-the-science to the general public and identify consensus ideas as well as critical next steps for integrating fundamental science in ecology and biology with applied technology for biological carbon capture for sequestration and utilization. 

Advanced Materials

Research coordinator: Abhik Ghosh  
Deputy: Matteo Chiesa  
Material technology is one of the columns on which a new future is built. The properties of a new material can be the difference to make or break a new concept. In the world of renewable energy, material science has been one of the main reasons that solar cell technology has become so efficient and cheap at the same time.

Power Generation

Research coordinator: tba 
Deputy: tba 
The earth is a giant solar driven entity, where nearly all life and physical processes are run by solar power. ‘What?’ you say, “but wind, waves and hydropower are different sources of energy!”. They are different forms of energy, but their source is still the sun.

Different temperatures in different areas of the atmosphere leads to different pressures. The equalization of this pressure is what we experience as wind. And the sun is the source of these temperature differences. Hydropower is driven by rainfall, collected in vast reservoirs. The rainfall is a result of evaporated water, due to the sun heating oceans and moist land. Waves are actually a result of winds moving the sea, where the wind as mentioned is originating from sunshine.  

The only sources of power that are not solar are tidal forces, which in effect is ‘moon power’; the gravitational pull from the moon moves the oceans. And geothermal power, which is generated by the gravitational pressure of the earth, melting the innermost structures, and heating the earth from within.  

In total, the sun provides about 10 000 times the amount of energy that is used globally in a year. In other words: If we stored all the energy from one hour of incoming sunshine,  we would have enough power to run the world for one year! This says all there is about whether or not it is possible to establish a modern society based on renewable sources. It is a question of solving the practical issues. This section will be updated with the research ARC is doing to solve these issues for arctic regions.

Society and ethics

Research coordinator: Berit Kristoffersen  
Deupty: Jennifer Clare Heyward  
ARC is about creating solutions for how to tackle what might turn out to be the biggest challenge of our time. The transition from a global society dependent on oil, towards a sustainable society based upon renewable energy.  Such a process brings up everything from ethical to societal questions that need to be considered, in order to build a solid foundation for the solutions that are being implemented.

It is important to be prepared for the transformations these technologies will commence, sometimes in surprising fields. Philosophy and social sciences are important tools to be one step ahead of the development, and guide and coordinate technological and social evolution. They lay down the stepping stones that are needed to cross the boundaries between theory and practice when exploring new territories. And are key to achieve the social and international cooperation that is needed for success on a larger scale.

Transportation

Research coordinator: Clara Good
Deputy: Mohamad Mustafa 
We are all familiar with the electric car. But did you know that there is an electric fishing boat in Senja, and two electric airplanes in Bardu? ARC is testing and developing further possibilities within low carbon transport at these sites. We need to develop more then just ground based transport alternatives, to achieve a complete transition to an oil free society.

Sea- and air alternatives are as important in the bigger picture. The two first electric airplanes to be tested in an arctic environment were recently delivered to an airbase in Bardu, North Norway. They were baptised in the norwegian soda ‘Solo’, and taken for a first spin on the tarmac (video). But this project is not only about testing the capability of the airplanes. It is about testing the whole chain of components required to make them run on locally produced electricity. The hangar walls have been covered with solar panels and and the energy is stored on site, so that the planes can be charged without using power from the external grid. The project can be seen as a protoype of a renewable energy airport, that can be scaled up to commercial sizes, based on the information from this test.  

The same goes for the fishing boat, where the bottle neck is the need for highly efficient charging stations. A boat can carry a lot of batteries, in contrast to an airplane, and the challenge is to ensure that it charges fast enough to be used in a commercial fishing schedule. This requires rethinking the backbone of the electrical system, in our case for some traditional fishing townships at Senja.
