Modern economies strongly rely on the supply of energy from various sources. The availability of energy is often the prime condition to facilitate (further) development and to improve living conditions. Another driving factor is Global Warming, as many fossil fuels contribute to the emission of greenhouse gases. In the coming decades fossil fuels will be replaced by renewable energy sources. Particularly in tropical regions where solar energy is available in abundance and therefore attractive, but also hydropower, biomass, geothermal power and wind power can be applied widely, depending on local circumstances.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE
DISTRIBUTED ENERGY GENERATION FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES
• Solar electricity generation and storage, both in off-grid systems and grid connected systems.
• Thermal solar systems, including hot water systems (hotels, hospitals) and solar dryers (food processing).
• Solar driven pumping systems for fresh water and irri-gation.
• Hydropower generation.
• Biomass (combustion, gasification, fermentation) fuels
• Geothermal energy generation.
• Application of wind turbines.
To reduce the emission of so called greenhouse gases we see a steep increase in the application of renewable sources.
DISTRIBUTION (NETWORKS) & CONVERSION OF ENERGY
Not only the generation, but also the distribution needs to be taken care of in a reliable and safe fashion.
EFFICIENT USE OF TRADITIONAL ENERGY SOURCES
Fire wood, coal, oil, (liquefied) gas. Where still traditional sources are applied, one should take care that they are handled in an (energy) efficient way.
COGENERATION OF HEAT & POWER (CHP-SYS-TEMS)
Efficiency can be greatly boosted when heat and electricity are generated in combination.
