Design of a Dutch carbon-free energy system

KIVI section Electrical Engineering has been addressing the Dutch Energy Transition since 2013.

Based on views of more than 50 Dutch professionals and a large body of national and international reports, this has resulted in a concept for a carbon-free energy system, based on electrification, solar power and wind energy, with hydrogen as a long-term buffer.

Simulations using historical weather data show that the system is robust, and financial analysis indicates that it is affordable.

The time horizon is 2050; is this concept sufficiently future proof to guide strategic decisions for the next decades? This webinar offers the opportunity to discuss a couple of the many issues still needing an answer.
