Additional investments boost industrial electrification R&D

An additional €2 million will be invested by TNO in its industrial electrification activities within VoltaChem on top of the existing yearly contribution. This increase is the result of additional government investments in applied research by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and a recognition of the importance of the subject and the results attained so far. The funds will be invested in accelerating collaborative R&D in the VoltaChem program lines and in facilitating technology uptake by industry. First results of the additional investments will be expected at the end of 2018.

Hybrid industrial energy systems: Kick-starting industrial electrification

One of the most promising short-term industrial electrification technologies is power-to-heat, the switch from gas- to electricity-based heat. As many industrial processes are driven by medium and high-temperature heat, changing its energy source to renewable power will immediately impact the industrial carbon footprint. In the VoltaChem program a group of companies, together with TNO and ECN, has recently started a project that will drastically improve the business case of power-to-heat using a hybrid energy system. At times when a lot of renewable electricity is available from the sun and wind, gas fired heat generation switches off and process heat is generated from sustainably generated electricity.
