The PowerLabDK facilities are a unique experimental platform and an interconnected network of laboratories supporting a wide range of experiments within digital energy solutions, interconnected energy systems and optimized energy technologies.
The facilities range from flexible fundamental research laboratories to a complete full-scale power distribution system that proves resourceful as data source and platform for full-scale experiments as well as living labs.
When the offshore industry transports oil from the seabed to the platform, it is important that the oil has a good flow in the pipeline. Chemicals are often used to support this flow, but the American-based company National Oilwell Varco (NOV) is very close to launching a new technique where chemicals are no longer needed. Tests have been run in PowerLabDK.
With a fleet of four state-of-the-art vehicles from Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, PSA Groupe and Nissan, the Danish project, Parker, is now demonstrating that vehicles from different car brands can contribute to supporting the electricity grid. An important milestone for the roll out of V2G.
In collaboration with the IT department of DTU, PowerLabDK has just invested in a large supercomputer as the first element of a soon-to-be-launched new Digital Energy Lab, which will support the development of an integrated, flexible and market-based energy system as recommended yesterday by the Danish Energy Commission.
Center for Electric Power and Energy at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) has a long tradition of advising both authorities and industry on scientific matters. As a part of the center, PowerLabDK will accommodate an increasing demand of sustainable energy solutions by establishing REPLI, an advisory service within the university.
DTU Electrical Engineering has launched an ambitious collaboration project with China that will increase the proportion of green energy in the electricity grid and ensure that surplus wind power can be transformed into gas and heating. In practice, it will reduce the pressure on the climate.
8th of June Risø hosted a seminar marking the end of the Nikola project. The seminar was attended by a hundred participants including representatives from seven different vehicle manufacturers who witnessed a successful first-of-its kind demonstration.
