PAN-European consortium secures funding for tidal turbine subsystem development

A European tidal energy consortium, led by Nova Innovation in Scotland, has secured funding from the European Commission to demonstrate and validate an innovative subsystem (direct drive power take-off (PTO) solution) for tidal turbines. The technology, when commercialised, will reduce the lifetime cost of tidal power by 20% and provide long term system reliability. The consortium is to receive grant funding of ā‚¬4.4M under the European Unionā€™s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for research and innovation.

Local approach to efficient water management in Mozambique

Local approach to efficient water management in Mozambique

TU Delft project assists local stakeholders in developing joint vision for the Zambezi River Millions of people in Mozambique are dependent on the Zambezi River, which rises in Zambia and flows into the Indian Ocean via Mozambique. The many varied and often also conflicting interests make water management of this river a difficult task. This leads to such problems as a shortage of water for irrigation in the dry season, and flooded villages in the wet season. In January 2017, TU Delft and partner organisations started the NICHE project Capacity Building for Integrated Water Resources Management in order to assist the river's stakeholders in developing a joint vision for the river. The project is also aimed at professionalising local knowledge of water management.
