ARC - Arctic Centre for Sustainable Energy

UiT The Arctic University of Norway established in 2017 the Arctic Centre for Sustainable Energy (ARC). This is an interdisciplinary centre focusing on Arctic challenges and conditions within renewable energy and greenhouse gas management. The centre will combine expertise in mathematics, humanities, informatics, natural and social sciences.

The centre’s main objectives are:

  • interdisciplinary R&D excellence within renewable energy and CO2 management in order to create sustainable societies in the Arctic
  • to create an internationally competitive and outstanding environment that is an attractive R&D partner for the commercial and public sectors
  • to ensure that graduates receive high quality education and expertise within renewable energy and CO2 management that is relevant for the business and public sector in the north

The focus themes of the centre, seen in an Arctic context, are ethical and responsible prosumption of distributed renewable electricity, fuels and thermal energy, and an accountable management of greenhouse gases.
