Research & Development Services
The focus of our R&D efforts is on researching and developing economically viable, environmentally sustainable energy solutions. We are looking for new cost-efficient solutions to produce renewable energy. However, there is also a lot of development work done within our traditional business segments that are still mainly based on fossil fuels: we are constantly improving our fuel products to meet customer needs in terms of efficiency and environmental-friendliness. Based on various sources, we have gathered our view of changes and challenges in the Nordic energy market for the next couple of decades. St1 Nordic Energy Outlook acts as a basis and roadmap for our R&D operations. An update to the first edition was published in 2017 and it will be updated again on a needs basis.
The future energy team of St1 focuses on the sustainable and feasible energy solutions of the future. We are looking at the entire field of renewable energy and searching for new potential technologies that can be commercialized.
We are exploring the opportunities of, e.g., energy storage systems and solar power in order to bring you new, smart energy options for the future.
The global energy challenge also requires a major increase in biological carbon sinks. St1 is piloting sustainable carbon sequestration through afforestation in Morocco. The goal of the pilot is to find the optimal solution for the use of land improvement and irrigation systems in cost-effective forest growth and carbon sequestration.
