More than a million for research on electrified bubbles

An NWO TA (Technology Area) grant of more than a million euros has been awarded to a team of researchers to investigate the formation of hydrogen bubbles, the transport of chemical species near the bubbles and the electrodes, and the interaction between bubbles. Large scale production of hydrogen is possible by electrochemically splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen. The flow and transport processes near electrodes is poorly understood, in particular around the produced hydrogen bubbles. A better understanding can help to increase the efficiency.

Gas turbines: vital for the transition to renewable energy sources

Gas turbines are mainly known as the jet engines that are used to propel aircraft. But they are also the workhorses in the huge power plants that supply electricity to our factories and houses.

Renewable Energy Systems - The Next Step Forward

Replacing large coal and nuclear power plants with renewable resources, especially wind and solar energy implicitly emphasised an increased use of ICT to control, monitor and protect future power systems; the final goal being to provide cheap and clean energy through a power system that operates with high levels of reliability and security of supply. This is reflected in what has become a generally accepted definition of a smart grid.
