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.
SynchroPhasor-based Automatic Real-time Control (SPARC)
An increasing future share of wind and solar power will lead to highly variabile and less controllable generation affecting the power system frequency and voltage. This will require changes in transmission system operation and management.
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.
CO2 capture and liquefaction at Preem refineries in Lysekil or Gothenburg, Sweden, for storage of CO2 on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (Preem CCS Prestudy).
Approximately half of buildings' energy demand is related to heating. LTTG+ will develop smart heating solutions for new urban areas: local low-temperature district heating grids which utilize nearby surplus heat sources.
CHEERS - Chinese-European Emission-Reducing Solutions
On 1 October 2017, a new Research and Innovation Action, designated CHEERS, was commenced under the EC-Horizon 2020 programme's Low-Carbon Initiative.
