Challenges system integration offshore wind

Jan Willem Wagenaar, R&D Portfolio Manager Wind Energy, TNO

Energy Management Systems for future energy systems

Iratxe Gonzalez Aparicio, R&D Portfolio Manager System Integration Wind Energy, TNO How can smart energy management solutions support the integration of large amounts of electricity produced by offshore wind farms into the energy system from 2030?

Weak grid in rural areas

Chris de Visser, Business Unit Manager Wageningen Research Chris discusses the potential applications of smart energy grids in rural areas.

Operational status SWITCH lab

Jan Willem Wagenaar and Floor Schipper, Project Manager, Port of Rotterdam How having a high percentage of sea-going vessels plugged in at the quay by 2030? So that diesel generators can be switched off.

About the hybrid energy system

Future energy system

We are going through an energy transition, where wind and solar energy will be the main energy sources of our future energy system. The variable nature of these sources increase the need for flexibility in the system, not in the least because of the huge industrial electrification. Storage and hydrogen production bring balance to the system and heat and hydrogen ‘products’ open-up new markets.

Switch to the future

Energy management systems are needed to manage such hybrid systems and, more importantly, validation and demonstration is necessary before large scale implementation. For this reason TNO and Wageningen Research joined forces and raised the SWITCH field lab facility. A unique hybrid sustainable power plant lab on a small scale.

TNO is investigating how smart energy management solutions can support integration of large quantities of electricity produced by offshore wind farms into the energy system from 2030 onwards. Wageningen Research focuses on the potential applications of this type of smart energy grid in rural areas.
