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.
Nieuwe Electrical Sustainable Powerlab leidt energietransitie in goede banen
In Delft verrijst een nieuw laboratorium dat uniek is in de wereld. In het Electrical Sustainable Powerlab onderzoeken wetenschappers straks onder een dak zowel de opwekking, transport, distributie als de afname van elektriciteit door huishoudens en bedrijven. Om ervoor te zorgen dat de energietransitie naar meer duurzame energie vlekkeloos verloopt.
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.
