Organization profile

Introduction / mission

Our research aims at transforming electricity grids towards a truly future-proof, sustainable energy supply. The group focusses on methodologies for planning, design and operation of smart medium-voltage and low-voltage networks with high amounts of renewable energy generation, storage and flexible demand.

Highlighted phrase

The generation and dissemination of knowledge to support the supply and efficient use of electrical energy for a sustainable society

Organisational profile

Electricity - the sustainable energy carrier. The electricity supply system is an essential link in the use of electricity and renewable energy. The following four developments impose new challenges to the design and operation of electricity networks:

  • The rapid rise of renewables (distributed generation and storage, micro grids, hybrid energy systems)
  • Electrification of our economy (electric vehicles, heat pumps, power to x)
  • Electricity markets (real time pricing, peer-to-peer trading, transactive energy)
  • Digitization (demand management, smart appliances, IoT)

Example of a project: sustainable production of fertilizer by our plasma activated water technology - Efro, Stimulus, POP3 project: https://ec.europa.eu/eip/agriculture/en/find-connect/projects/plasma-activated-water
