A digital twin of the entire EU electricity grid is within reach
It is vital to the increase the reliability of the European electricity system. The electricity grid needs to be ready for a drastic increase of renewable energy and more resilient to future shocks (such as cyber-attacks). That is why 77 partners, from 15 European countries, have come together through the TwinEU consortium project to create a digital twin of the entire European electricity grid. TU Delft is one of the prominent partners within this project and is very excited to have won the grand proposal together with all the leading stakeholders.

Enrol in the Massive Open Online Course on Gender Equality in the Clean Energy Transition
A sustainable future is the only future. That is why the energy transition is so important. It is a worldwide, structural change to reshape energy production and shift away from fossil fuels, towards clean sources like hydro, wind and solar power. But even though this transition is a movement at the forefront of change, it is still lacking in certain areas. Most notably, women are significantly underrepresented in the energy sector and transition. TU Delft, together with many international partners, are working on solving this issue within the FemPower project and trough the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Gender Equality in the Clean Energy Transition.
