The European energy system is now entering a transition to a low-carbon future in accordance with the COP21 agreements and European Union targets and objectives set for 2020, 2030 and 2050.
CleanTex = Reduction of energy consumption and climate gas emissions in industrial Textile laundry processes
SynchroPhasor-based Automatic Real-time Control (SPARC)
In a future sustainable power system there will be large shares of renewable generation, but also more changes in consumption and more cross-border transmission. Thus, the operation of the power system becomes more challenging, and calls for better methods and tools to operate the system.
ImpreCCS - Impact of CO2 impurities and additives in CCS
High costs and risks remain significant barriers to large-scale implementation of carbon capture, transport and storage (CCS).
The ambition of the TotalControl project is to develop the next generation of wind power plant (WPP) control tools, improving both WPP control itself and the collaboration between wind turbine (WT) and WPP control.
The HydroFlex project aims to develop new technology permitting highly flexible operation of hydropower stations. Flexibility of operation here means large ramping rates, frequent start-stops and possibilities to provide a large range of system services. All this within (strict) excellent environmental and social conditions while being economically competitive compared to alternative solutions.
Current interruption in supercritical fluids
An increasing number of windfarms located far off the coasts and a growing demand for electric power supply to oil and gas installations on the seabed will lead to a development of an off-shore electric power transmission infrastructure.
The main target is to contribute to keeping this sector competitive and performant as it is at the center of a complex web of interests (the public, politics, energy, economy, environment) in the development of circular economy.
