New call for proposals launched in area of Energy System Integration

10 Oct 2019 - 2 min

In the call ‘Energy System Integration: Towards a Future-Proof, Affordable and Reliable Energy System’, researchers of NWO-acknowledged knowledge institutes, TO2-institutes and universities of applied science can submit proposals in the area of Energy System Integration. A budget of 4,7 – 5,0 million euros is made available, provided by NWO-ENW, NWO-SGW,Topsector Energy, and Taskforce for Applied Research (SIA). Additionally, the Netherlands eScience Center will provide eScience Research Engineers worth 1,2 million euros.

Energy System Integration

The call ‘Energy System Integration’ focuses on the integration issues of energy systems on various scales, such as coupling and optimizing the infrastructures for production, transport and storage of energy, and on finding optimal transition paths. The system as a whole is central here, not specific parts. The aim of the call is also to make digital technologies for energy system integration widely available.

This demands multidisciplinary approaches, including, among other things, mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, economics, public administration, psychology, law, innovation sciences and ethics. The multidisciplinary approach is therefore included in the evaluation of the proposals. This approach can consist of combining disciplines within one domain (i.e. either natural/technical sciences, or humanities and social sciences), or by combining disciplines from two or all of the aforementioned domains.
