Together with four European partners Circular Energy has applied for the Horizon 2020 program ‘Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future / secure, clean and efficient energy’. The objective is to study the dynamic behaviour of the combination of an offshore clean-gas-to-power plant and an offshore windfarm and to propose control strategies for optimum performance.
In addition to Circular Energy de Riga university, Arhus university, Bilfinger Tebodin en Sintef are involved in this project. The idea is that the combination of an offshore windfarm and offshore clean-gas-to-power plant allows for a much better match with typical demand profiles for power than a standalone windfarm. The integration between the various components involved in the system poses a challenge for stable operations and for a sufficiently dynamic response to power market opportunities.
