Electrical Sustainable Energy
The ESE department’s research activities aim at accelerating the energy transition towards sustainable energy. The research covers electrical energy generation from renewable energy sources, its transmission, distribution and storage. The department designs and fabricates high-performance, low-cost photovoltaic (PV) cells and power electronics devices for integration in future power networks. It studies systems with electricity generation using PV and wind technologies, high-voltage and direct-current transmission, and intelligent power management for increasing energy efficiency.
In anticipation of the large-scale introduction of renewable and distributed energy sources, the technical, economic and societal performances of the future electricity system are studied through multidisciplinary “system of systems” approaches. Working on this energy transition, the ESE department contributes to tackling important societal challenges such as climate change and environmental pollution. The department plays a leading role in the EEMCS thematic line Energy Transition.

HybridLabs consortium receives NWA-ORC funding for innovations in offshore renewable energy
The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has announced that the HybridLabs consortium will receive 10.4 million euros in funding within the National Research Agenda programme: Research on Routes by Consortia (NWA-ORC). The HybridLabs consortium project will accelerate Dutch innovations in offshore renewable energy through data-driven hybrid labs. The consortium consists of around 40 partners and is led by the TU Delft Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, with a valuable contribution from the team Dynamic Stability of Sustainable Electrical Power Systems of EEMCS’ Intelligent Electrical Power Grids Group (IEPG).
