– Potensialet for grunnvarme i Norge er høyt. Vi kan dekke alt kjøle og varmebehov med det. Vi har beregnet at vi kan erstatte tilsvarende 33 TWh med strøm med grunnvarme. Det tilsvarer litt over 20 prosent av Norges kraftproduksjon. Det sier Randi Kalskin Ramstad som er rådgiver i Asplan Viak og førsteamanuensis II ved NTNU. Les saken på nrk.no her

Welcome Ramon!

Ramon Abritta Aguiar Santos has joined The Department of Geoscience and Petroleum to start his PhD project «Operation maintenance, and investment strategy for offshore energy hubs”. This project is a part of Horizon 2020 EU project «InnoCyPES: Innovative Tools for Cyber-Physical Energy Systems» (https://innocypes.eu). This is a multidisciplinary project that includes energy, economic, and environmental aspects. Ramon will gather information and develop models and optimal strategies to plan and operate offshore energy hubs. Such systems consist of oil and gas platform, wind power generation, energy storage, etc. In this project, Ramon will cooperate with Equinor, Siemens and will be associated with the BRU21 program – NTNU Research and Innovation Program in Digital and Automation Solutions for the Oil and Gas Industry.

Ramon has an MSc degree in Electrical Engineering, with focus on energy systems, awarded by the Federal University of Juiz de Fora (UFJF), Brazil. He was the main developer of codes to optimize the operation of three Brazilian hydroelectric power plants during his 2.5-year master’s R&D project, which was a work in partnership with a Brazilian electric utility company.

Welcome, Ramon!
