Programme description

The Large-scale Programme for Energy Research (ENERGIX) was launched in 2013.

The Large-scale Programme for Energy Research (ENERGIX) was launched in 2013 and will span a ten-year period. The ENERGIX programme is designed to generate new knowledge to support the long-term, sustainable restructuring of the energy system, which will require more renewable energy, more energy-efficient solutions, closer energy integration with Europe, and improved flexibility. Important secondary objectives for the programme are:

  • To achieve sustainable utilisation and consumption of renewable energy resources;
  • To reduce Norwegian and global emissions of climate gases;
  • To ensure Norway’s security of supply;
  • To strengthen innovation in Norwegian trade and industry;
  • To further develop Norwegian research communities.

The ENERGIX programme encompasses the stationary energy system and environment-friendly energy for transport. Activities under the programme are concentrated in the following thematic priority areas:

The ENERGIX programme will also promote the broadest possible range of research activities to open the door to new thinking and innovative concepts. The ENERGIX programme will also promote the broadest possible range of research activities to open the door to new thinking and innovative concepts.

 

Knowledge about environmental impacts is vital in all of these thematic priority areas. The ENERGIX programme will help to achieve energy and industrial policy objectives and is a key instrument in the implementation of Energi21, Norway’s national RD&D strategy. The programme will also promote the broadest possible range of research activities to open the door to new thinking and innovative concepts. The programme is targeted towards Norwegian companies and research and educational institutions. This work programme establishes the formal framework and focus of the ENERGIX programme and provides guidelines for R&D actors seeking funding under the programme. The ENERGIX programme board conducts annual analyses of the project portfolio and development trends in the thematic priority areas. These analyses, together with the work programme, provide the basis for funding announcements for R&D projects.
