CRE and The Green Village are looking for integral solutions to solve challenges around the energy transition in the built environment. This includes solutions for a smart multi commodity grid (SMCG).

 

What is their business?

TU Delft is known for its ground-breaking research, excellent education and innovative cooperation with external partners. Campus and Real Estate (CRE) supports this. CRE develops and erects new buildings as well as renovations, manages and maintains buildings and sites and provides energy on campus.

CRE is subdivided into the departments of Strategic Campus Management, Campus Development, Science Park Development, Projects, Management and Maintenance and the Support Unit. These departments collaborate to provide a pleasant, sustainable studying, research and work environment at a lively campus so that TU Delft can maintain its international rankings.

The Green Village is the living lab for sustainable innovation in the urban environment at TU Delft Campus. This is where scientists, entrepreneurs, government bodies and the general public come together to test sustainable innovations on a small scale and eliminate possible bottlenecks. In doing so, innovations can scale up faster and be applied in the real world. Together we are working to solve the biggest challenges in the field of climate adaptivity and energy transition.

 

What are they looking for? 

CRE and The Green Village are looking for integral solutions to solve challenges around the energy transition in the built environment. This includes solutions for a smart multi commodity grid (SMCG).

  1. Within a few years, the limits of the capacity of the electrical grid of the campus will be reached. This could lead to power failures with severe effects on critical processes and long-term research experiments. To prevent this, we could invest heavily in grid reinforcements. But we prefer first to look for other solutions. We are looking for solutions which can help us to:
    1. reduce power peaks
    2. divide the energy demand more evenly during the day (energy buffering)
    3. get more insight in the division of the energy demand on the campus (sub-monitoring)
  2. The transformation to a Smart Multi Commodity Grid (SMCG). An SMCG is an essential step into the energy transition. Without an SMCG it isn’t possible to optimize energy usage, CO2 emissions, but also energy costs. Therefore, we are looking for solutions which can help us to:
    1. control and monitor integral a multi commodity grid (electricity, water, heat, gas)
    2. develop control strategies which are optimized for energy usages, CO2 emissions and/or energy costs in total
    3. maintain stability in the grids
