Theme of the Dies Natalis celebration 2019 is Climate Action
In our future energy system, electricity derived from solar panels and wind turbines, and heat derived from geothermal wells, heat pumps, solar collectors and urban surfaces will constitute cheap and abundant sources of carbon-free energy for our built environment and for our industries.
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.
Sponsorship for Assistant/Associate Professor Geothermal Science and Engineering
During the Geothermal Get-Together on 29 November 2018, it was announced that research on Geothermal Science and Engineering at TU Delft got another boost. A consortium of seven partners signed a certificate for sponsoring an Assistant/Associate Professor.
How to transform urban energy systems
Sustainable Urban Energy Systems Conference. Ambitious climate change targets can only be realized by transforming urban energy systems into smart low carbon energy systems. Thinking and discussing about how to achieve this happened on November 8 and 9 at TU Delft and The Green Village by 150 attendees, from more than 90 organizations and 16 – not only European – countries.
New Electrical Sustainable Powerlab smooths the way for energy transition
A new laboratory, the only one of its kind in the world, is being built in Delft. The Electrical Sustainable Powerlab will bring together under one roof scientists researching the generation, transfer, distribution and use of electricity by households and companies. The aim is to ensure a smooth transition to more sustainable energy.
Christine Milchram in The Green Village on transforming urban energy systems
TU Delft hosted the Sustainable Urban Energy Systems Conference on the 8th and 9th of November. An international event that focused on the technological prospects, citizen involvement and governance arrangements in the field of urban energy systems. Because: ambitious climate change targets can only be realised by transforming urban energy systems into smart low carbon energy systems. Christine Milchram, researcher at TPM, provides key insights on the event.
Paulien Herder joins board NWO Domain Applied and Engineering Sciences
The board of the NWO domain Applied and Engineering Sciences appoints prof. Paulien Herder as new board member. She will join the AES domain board as of 1 January 2019.
Jorge Andrés Moncada Escudero in TU Delta about modeling supply chains
Agent-based modelling is a novel way to analyse biofuel supply chains, where it reproduces the complex dynamics of society, says TPM PhD candidate Moncada Escudero.
Baljinnyam Sereeter wins drone at PowerWeb’s PhD poster contest 2018
On 13 November the PowerWeb PhD poster contest 2018 took place at X Delft. The judges subscribed all 20 posters as high level and great passion at every 2 minute pitch. The clarity to explain your research in such a short time is a challenge, but they all did very well. First prize winner is Baljinnyam Sereeter, second prize is for Nils van der Blij and last but especially according to the audience, not least: at third place Kaikai Pan.
