Develop a method for stabbing and upending Offshore Wind monopiles
The turbines and foundations used in Offshore Wind are increasing in size with every year. Installing the monopiles, which can go beyond 100m long and more than Ø10m, is becoming more and more challenging. Before upending the monopiles, the lifting tool needs to ‘stab’ the monopile on the outer end. Can you think of a system to move and insert the lifting tool into the monopile?
Hydrogen can be used to store energy from solar and wind. Many companies and organizations are talking about Hydrogen these days. Let us take ASML’s semiconductor approach to look at Hydrogen and see if we can develop an electrolyzer based on today’s technology that is ready for the future.
Techno-Economic assessment of distributed hybrid power systems
Growing penetration of renewable power generation and increasing demand fluctuation necessitate decentralized hybrid power systems that support grid stabilization. This JIP will focus on distributed wind power in combination with other renewable generation systems and energy storage to identify and evaluate future viable business cases for hybrid power systems.
Towards zero-carbon society: role of green ammonia
Ammonia is a potential hydrogen carrier for fuel and feedstock, similar to fossil fuels where energy is released by breaking of chemical bonds. Ammonia is receiving more attention because it is easier to store and transport compared to gaseous or liquid hydrogen. It can be further considered green, if renewable energy is used for its production. However, building and scaling up the supply chain has certain risks and technical challenges associated which needs to be addressed and mitigated. In this case study we would like to investigate the biggest challenges and risks along the full supply chain, not only technical but also economic, policy and societal aspects should be considered.
Geo-energy driving city renewal – connecting and nurturing the expertise for tomorrow
Only by introducing the subsurface as early as possible into the urban planning process we can avoid delays and costs and make optimal use of the potential the subsurface. In this workshop urban planners and geoscientists will share a joint vision and will work hand-in hand to optimise the economic, social and environmental benefits of the subsurface resources.
Research, design and engineer an integration of a large garden that will sustain the motions and climate the yachts is exposed to. Proof the additional value in air quality and consider the functional use of people onboard. The challenge is successful if the design is clearly presented, systems identified, proportioned and integrated and the functional use on the air quality validated. image: Feadship
Advanced Geothermal Systems in Urban Environments
Geothermal systems can be a cost-efficient and reliable solution for residential heating and potentially cooling. However, due to the required project scale and many parameters, it is a complex puzzle. Build a complete roadmap including business case calculations with components as heat net, heat carrier, and storage to guide project developers.
The 24/7 Energy Autonomous Site of The Green Village
In the 24/7 Autonomous Energy Site, we are designing the energy system of the future at district level by combining three infrastructures: hydrogen, heat and electricity. All faculties are joining hands in this flagship project of the TU Delft, to make The Green Village energy autonomous. Will you participate in this ambitious goal?
Keeping up to date with energy transition: A maintenance perspective
"TenneT is one of the key players for energy transition in Europe. Energy transition is a change which is driven by political, regulatory, environmental and technological background. To keep up to date with energy transition and looking at the technological background, the asset management department will make it sure that the transmission network is properly maintained, transmission network is ready to embrace the new technology, and failures can be predicted with highest accuracy using machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques.
Hydrogen – The fuel of the future!
As part of Stolthaven’s new energy strategy, we would like to challenge you to design us a hydrogen terminal! How should it be done and what’s the best way to act as an independent terminal? That means not only developing the storage tank (or alternative) itself, but also looking at the logistics, location, layout etc.
Reduction of energy waste of Autoclaves at the GKN Aerostructures sites
At the locations of GKN Aerostructures in Hoogeveen and Papendrecht a number of autoclaves are in use for the manufacturing of high value aerospace components and assemblies. These autoclaves consume a considerable amount of energy both electricity and gas (used to heat thermal oil). A significant improvement to our overall sustainability goal to reduce fuels and electricity in the construction of our parts should be realized via the reduction of energy consumption and energy recovery or using alternative energy sources (switching gas to electricity or hydrogen). The goal of the project is to research what level of sustainability is achievable for the various autoclaves and how this can be achieved in the shortest possible time.
Integrated e-homes in smart grids
An e-home is a home of the future that you can live in today. Packed with sustainable heat and energy systems. A home ready to be enjoyed in comfort now. Due to the increase of smart and complex solutions for your house, and the consequences of wind and solar energy on the grid, there is a need to implement a smart&simple solution to anticipate this development. How can monitoring and remote control decrease maintenance and increase comfort? Is there a way to eliminate the hardware elements that are multiple times in order to reduce cost?
