A-Z South area - geothermal energy
Focusing on (A) its geothermal potential and on using this as a driving force for urban development including the planning of a new river crossing. (B) What are the novel construction methods available for a bridge or tunnel? (C) Which specific urban typology development is necessary to decrease wealth inequality.
Towards climate neutral greenhouses
To feed the future world population we have to produce 60 percent more food by 2050. This has to be done in a sustainable way. Today, the Dutch agricultural greenhouse sector uses 9 percent (!) of the total gas used in The Netherlands. Growers use the gas to produce electricity (light), heat and CO2, three important ingredients for the growth of crops. The sector aims to become climate energy neutral before 2030 and to eliminate the use of gas. This results in the need for new energy sources such as geothermal and hydrogen and to develop an infrastructure in which these different systems are well integrated.
Towards a zero carbon society - Hydrogen supply chain optimisation
The outrol of the green hydrogen import supply chains in a short time frame is a huge undertaking which requires better understanding of the bottlenecks and risks. Royal HaskoningDHV would like to model several supply chains and research what role stakeholders can take to mitigate the risks.
Geothermal powered district heating in Eindhoven
ENN intends to expand their heat net in Eindhoven while reducing the CO2 emissions using geothermal energy. Challenges are the relative unknown subsurface and a limited number of available heat sources. What is the most cost-effective strategy to deliver reliable and sustainable heat?
Thermal energy storage , within (electrical) smart grid applications
Croonwolter&dros TBI, a large Dutch System Integrator, is involved in ‘Electrical’ Smart Grid applications. Their ‘Venture’ Technical Automation and Information department (TAI) is developing a 'Family of Products which involves smart grid solutions (e.g Emma Energico Energy) and engineering tools, that make life easier for engineers, developers and operators in the energy sector'. Considering the latest developments TAI Energico Energy is interested in new practical perspectives regarding the integration of ‘Thermal energy’ systems.
Optimization of local generation and storage of Hydrogen in the built environment
Improve the storage of RES generated energy through hydrogen: The efficiency of the entire process cycle (electrolyseràcompressorà gascylinder storageà fuel cell), A reduction of the large volume of hydrogen gascylinders and the high pressure in the cylinders (300 bar). The challenge is to propose alternative ways to store hydrogen at very compact volume and low pressure and to propose a better efficiency of the electrolyser and fuel cell.
A future infrastructure to provide greenhouses with CO2
To feed the future world population we have to produce 60 percent more food by 2050. This has to be done in a sustainable way. Today, the Dutch agricultural greenhouse sector uses 9 percent (!) of the total gas used in The Netherlands. Growers use the gas to produce electricity (light), heat and CO2, three important ingredients for the growth of crops. The sector aims to become climate energy neutral before 2030 and to eliminate the use of gas. This results in the need for new energy and CO2 sources and to develop an infrastructure in which these different systems are well integrated.
Enabling solar power in a saturated power grid
Stedin is a network operator in the largest part of South-Holland, Utrecht and Zeeland, where it builds and maintains the local electricity and gas grid. Stedin is exploring if and how it can offer alternative ways to connect sustainable energy sources in congested areas. Specifically, Stedin wants to know how it can enable Windunie to connect a new solar park (60-85 MWp), near Utrecht (a region where Tennet has announced structural congestion).
Autonomous control for smart grids
The city of The Hague is using smart grids to participate in the energy transition. ‘Topsector Energie – Systeemintegratie’ has defined a vision for a possible control concept for the energy system of the future. In this project we invite a team to put this theoretical concept into practice in our smart grid in Scheveningen.
Life Cycle Analysis of hydrogen storage system: energy payback time
We are realizing seasonal energy storage with a battery, electrolyzer, compressor, cylinders, and a fuel cell. We ask you to perform a life cycle analysis and calculate the energy payback time of our hydrogen-based storage system. Challenge our design and come up with alternatives to those components which have a large energy payback time.
The Electrification Twin
The Dutch industry has traditionally relied on natural and residual gases. To make the industry more sustainable, significant steps are to be taken. An option with big impact is the electrification of the industry. The Electrification Twin can aid our industrial clients in identifying impactful projects with a strategic roadmap towards their energy transition goals.
Offshore installation of wind turbines on floaters
In the future, many windfarms will be built with floating wind turbines. For sites far at sea, the small operational weather window restricts the possibility to install wind turbines onshore and tow them to site. An alternative method is needed. Therefore your challenge is: Find the best method to install a 15MW wind turbine on a floating substructure far offshore using a floating vessel.
