With current developments in the field of sustainability, climate adaptation, viruses and population decline issues, the human need for buildings to live, work, and learn in, is logically changing. It is of great importance that the rather conservative building world responds to these trends by cooperating more closely and with greater commitment with residents, users, social platforms, and designers. On this basis, new constructions can be built that suit the wishes and wants of our time and take into account a rapidly changing future. This certainly applies to the energy transition, which is integrated linked to this.
This week Dr. Beata Kviatek, a senior researcher at EnTranCe | Centre of Expertise Energy and a lecturer at the International Business School, is giving a presentation on development of regional hydrogen economy in the Northern Netherlands at the international conference of the European Consortium for Political Research. The Consortium is the leading scholarly society concerned with the research and teaching in Europe. It unites over 300 institutional members in nearly 50 countries, which amounts to a global community of tens of thousands of scholars.
Tijdens het SIA congres van dit jaar is één van de deelsessie verzorgd door het Lectorenplatform EnergieVoorziening in Evenwicht (LEVE), waar de Hanzehogeschool penvoerder van is.
A hydrogen network is being constructed in the EnTranCe testing ground.
Are you looking for a (graduation) assignment and would you like to do this at an living lab? Come on Tuesday November 17th between 12:00 - 15:00 hrs to the Online Meet & Greet of various innovation workshops and find your ideal (graduation) assignment!
An above-ground heat network runs through EnTranCe's experimental garden, which, among other things, heats the main building. If you carry out a trial that generates heat on the experimental site, you can 'lose' this heat to the heat network. At the moment, one of the heat suppliers for this heat network is the Hydrogreenn Hoogeveen project. Three hydrogen central heating boilers are being tested here, which supply heat to our heat network on a daily basis.
