If this large-scale storage of renewable energy in liquid ammonia succeeds, communities can cover long low wind and solar energy periods
The Battolyser, which will be used as a super battery in a gas power plant, is becoming a reality.
For the first time, TU Delft researchers led by Prof. Fokko Mulder have produced an integrated battery electrolysis system – known as a ‘battolyser’ – that can not only store or supply electricity efficiently as a battery but can also split water into hydrogen and oxygen using electrolysis.

The battery is developed including high energy density thermochemical materials that can supply required heating, cooling and domestic hot water for a dwelling with up to 100% renewable energy sources (e.g. the sun) throughout the year. Read More
Smart urban design requires an integrated look at the city as a complex of material flows and living environment, which exposes the connections between sources, functions, infrastructure and users.
This Research Report ‘Smart Cities’ has been published by the University Delft. The researchers consider Smart Cities as a way of working on a future-proof city, cleverly making use of people, resources and systems.
In this Delft Smart City research project, students examined the possible impact of recent developments under the heading ‘Smart City’ for Delft.
The strong nanofibers can be used for strong carbon composites which are used in planes, bikes, wind turbine blades and space equipments.
In 2015, a research team from the George Washington University presented a technology that converts CO2 (directly from the air) into highly valued carbon nanofibers for industrial and consumer products.
The strong nanofibers can be used for strong carbon composites which are used in planes, bikes, wind turbine blades and space equipments. Read More
different technologies can be used for micro-CHP, including stirling engines, rankine engines, internal combustion engines, and fuel cells.
Fuel cell based micro CHP units in homes and commercial buildings can help the electricity grid assimilate more renewables according to the Technical University of Denmark.
Scientists published a report explaining the need to create a market for electricity services to draw new technologies such as micro CHP into wider use and accelerate the cost reduction needed for general consumer uptake. Read More
