Bergen Energy Lab (BEL)

Newsletter - February


Main content

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2017!

With many interesting events planned for the spring and some already well-executed, the Bergen Energy Lab is off to a good start to 2017.

A goal set by the Norwegian government to reach 20 % biofuels in road traffic in 2020 triggered heated debates on the use of biofuels. The Bergen Energy Lab invited both scientists and representatives of the industry to give their views on the future of Norwegian biofuel on a half-day seminar arranged at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences. Read all about it here.

Read also about the five weekly lunch-meetings we have had with Crina Ilea (Prototech), Arne Klein (Department of Informatics, UIB), Per Bull Haugsøen (Oceanvis AS), Kevin Johnsen (Nordic Energy Research) and Håvard Haarstad (Department of Geography, UIB). Do not miss the interview with previous Energy Master student Hilde Skeie, who now works as a trainee in project management in Bane NOR, and our report from the EERA DeepWind Conference.
