Charging Energy Hubs

Smart energy management

Charging Energy Hubs

The project facilitates and accelerates the transition around the electrification of the logistics sector in the Netherlands by removing existing financial, legal and organisational barriers and developing technological innovations that enable the incorporation of, among other things, charging infrastructure, battery storage and renewable energy sources within our existing electricity networks, even if that network is subject to congestion.

Control of electricity flows

The Energy Hub

Energy Hubs are (local) energy systems to which multiple consumers or generators and any storage can be connected. The hub regulates the flow of electricity from and between the connected consumers in such a way that maximum flexibility and scalability over time and into the future is obtained at the lowest possible capacity requirement of the grid operator's connection. In addition, the sites are linked to the energy markets to purchase or make available electricity at specific times, taking into account congestion pressure. Trade in electricity thus becomes much more dynamic as schedules, capacity with co-users and local generation also become accessible. This provides both a solution to grid congestion and the business case for investment in charging infrastructure.
