A Dutch applied research organisation offers its test site and expertise for renewable resources and smart grid technologies under a service or outsourcing agreement.

Center name Тестовый центр
Summary A Dutch organisation is specialized in applied research on renewable energy and green resources and offers opportunities to test renewable resources and smart grid technology solutions on its test site. The test site is suitable for non-commercial prototypes of new or adapted technologies and includes all required infrastructure. The organisation would like to roll out their business in Europe and is looking for collaboration. Service or outsourcing agreements are envisioned.
Description of the offer A Dutch independent renowned organisation is specialized as national centre for its applied research on renewable energy and green resources. Nowadays the world relies heavily on coal, oil, and natural gas for its energy. Fossil fuels are non-renewable, that is, they draw on finite resources that will eventually dwindle, becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In contrast, the many types of renewable energy resources-such as wind and solar energy-are constantly replenished and will never run out. Research and development and further implementation is needed. The organization is involved in projects regarding i. aquatic biomass, ii. bio refinery, iii. smart energy and iv. the green gas supply chain. The facilities are situated in centre of The Netherlands on a 1,200 ha large experimental area. The scope of activities is to carry out tests with new or improved technologies in the field of renewable resources and smart grid solutions. The test site has been developed between 2007-2012 and has been used ever since for R&D purposes together with a variety of industrial clients. Clients and partners can make use of the following available infrastructure: - A 1 m3 digester with a 120 kWh biogas engine and a mechanical pre-treatment facility; - Silo’s for storage of digester feed; - A feeder bunker of 40 m3; - Digestate separator for thick and thin fraction production; - A 50 Nm3 biogas separator; - Two 1,5 m2 raceway ponds for aquatic biomass production; - Two 1,5 m3 fermentors; - Infrastructure to connect and feed the installations. - Switchboard in a container that can connect a large array of electricity supplying and demanding applications for smart grid and off-grid studies under control of a PLC. There is ample space available to connect and test new prototype installations. The organisation offers test facilities to clients and adequate expertise to carry out tests and support in the development of the technology. In close co-operation valid scientific test protocols can be developed that guarantee practical and useful results for further development. The organization would like to roll out their business in Europe and is looking for partners. A service agreement or outsourcing agreement is envisioned.
Advantages and Innovations The organization is working at the forefront of research and development and especially with respect to the implementation of novel technologies, understanding and models in current settings. For instance: the electricity network of the future will largely exist of renewable energy. Energy from the sun and wind is unpredictable by definition and brings new technical and economic challenges to society. On the other hand, the Internet and ICT enable innovations that could provide solutions. Smarter use of energy in combination with ICT is also known as Smart Grid. Within the organization concepts are further developed, researched and tested, so as to lower the price of and improve the sale of renewable energy to the Dutch electricity grid. Here the production technology and the economy meet in their efforts to produce more wind and solar energy. Think about: storage in power to examples as batteries, gas, hydrogen and stabilizing electricity networks, peak shaving and cable pooling. The goal is to make production more profitable and more sustainable. Advantages: • Hands-on personnel with adequate expertise; • Independent test results; • Pilot scale experiments with innovative technology solutions fitting in experimental test permit; • Ample opportunities to invite and welcome business partners and clients; • Confidentiality if required.
Current Stage of Development The organization makes use of its secret know-how and is fully focussed on independent testing for the benefit of its clients.
