WHAT IS THE SAMER PROJECT?

The aim of the SAMER project is the development of a proprietary zinc-air flow battery technology for grid scale storage of renewable energy. Zinc-air flow batteries are a low cost, safe and environmentally friendly energy storage technology.

OVERALL OBJECTIVES

KEY PLAYER

Lead the market of energy storage systems with an efficient, competitive and safe technology.

GRID STABILITY

Provide an energy buffer to accommodate daily variations in wind and solar energy and stabilize the grid during short-term fluctuations.

ENERGY SECURITY

Reduce dependency from fossil fuels and foreign resources and promote the use of local renewable energy, reducing imports and improving the balance of payments.

CLIMATE CHANGE

Conserve the environment and mitigate climate change by incorporating higher shares of renewable energy and reducing emissions of greenhouse gases.

DO YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT SAMER?

SAMER is funded by “EEA Grants”. This program, jointly financed by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, provide funding to 16 EU countries in central and southern Europe. There are 32 programme areas within different sectors ranging from environmental protection and climate change to civil society and research.

PROJECT

SAMER is the result of the partnership between Técnicas Reunidas and SINTEF:

TR’s Technological Center is the R&D division of Técnicas Reunidas with activity in hydrometallurgy, energy storage, recycling, water treatment and nanomaterials.

SINTEF Materials and Chemistry is a Norwegian polytechnic research foundation performing contract research and development for industry and the public sector.
