Sympower and Dutch grid operator TenneT will examine the possibilities of using distributed electrical assets to help balance the grid in a sustainable way. The pilot will start in January 2019 and will run for a period of two years during which a number of Sympower’s partners will provide flexibility through their controllable energy loads to one of TenneT's balancing markets, called 'automated Frequency Restoration Reserves’ (aFRR or ‘control power’).
At the moment, aFRR is mainly provided by conventional power plants, but the future of the energy landscape is changing and new solutions are needed.
Various well-known organisations presented their shared vision on the future of hyperloop in Europe at the first successful edition of the HyperSummit organised by Hardt Hyperloop. This included the station of the future presented by architecture firm UNStudio. Hardt Hyperloop also shared the results of the Amsterdam-Frankfurt kick-off study and Royal Schiphol Group announced the launch of a joint research study into the feasibility and applicability of a hyperloop connection.
Nine startups from five countries, spanning three continents have been selected to start Rockstarts Smart Energy Program.
Talented women and men from across the smart energy field will enter the program to work on their products and energy solutions, ranging from grid management based on machine learning to a mobile grid battery.
InnoEnergy, the European community for knowledge and innovation in sustainable energy, is investing up to five million euros in Hardt Hyperloop. Hardt is investing the funds in the consortium that has been established to realise the hyperloop in Europe. Deutsche Bahn represented by DB Engineering & Consulting, Continental and Engie Laborelec have announced today that they are joining the consortium.
Hardt Hyperloop is een samenwerkingsverband gestart met Hyperloop bedrijven uit Europa en Canada om te komen tot internationale standaarden en regelgeving.
ITM Group uit Kampen is de eerste commerciële klant van Elestor met een waterstof-broom flow batterij. De batterij wordt ingezet voor het smart grid van ITM om voor langere periode zelfvoorzienend te kunnen worden. Het Elestor systeem zal in 2019 verder worden opgeschaald.
