Project KOEMPEL : First-of-a-kind smart grid at an industrial park

A consortium consisting of research universities, governmental bodies and industrial partners has successfully filed a project in the smart grid innovation tender organized by the Dutch government at the end of 2013. The partners will transform business park ‘De Beitel’ in Heerlen into a smart grid. Companies within this business park will be equiped by state of the art ICT-technology which enables them to optimize their electricity consumption taking into account the influences of renewable energy. Consequently, they can reduce investments and operational cost in the local distribution grid. With this hands-on project with a short duration of 2 years, the consortium will make the concept ‘smart grid’ tangible by delivering societal benefits.

Consortium partners Laborelec (lead partner), TU Eindhoven, Centre of Expertise Neber, Hogeschool Zuyd, Enexis and Cofely
Project duration : 2014-2015
