Client: Period: 2014 Work 3E developed the energy concept for the new research centre. It is to be an energy-autonomous base with minimal use of fossil fuel for either heating, water production or electricity. Renewable energy sources are used to meet most energy requirements. Passive house techniques are used to reduce the heat[…]
Client: Period: 2014 Work 3E has been commissioned by the Société Nationale Industrielle et Minière de Mauritanie (SNIM) to conduct a feasibility study of a 15MW wind farm in the north of Mauritania at the Nouadibou harbour. The scope of the study includes the wind resource assessment, the grid integration study, the environmental[…]
Client: Period: 2015 Work 3E has performed a feasibility study for several mini-grids in Madagascar including hydro, PV, wind and diesel. Apart from the technical work to find the most cost-efficient generation mix solutions for these sites, 3E also analysed the socio-economic questions suggesting business models for the mini-grids, energy delivery and payment[…]
Client: Period: 2014-2016 Work This research project, combining industrial research, development and dissemination of knowledge, contributes to reducing technical barriers to the integration of decentralized and intermittent renewable energy. The objective of the research is to analyze the technical and economic optimization of a smart grid by developing technical models that mimic the[…]
Client: Period: 2015 Work 3E has developed a toolbox for modelling complete power systems containing significant amounts of storage and now brings it to the market to optimize your energy storage application. This tool is the main outcome of the NEWTON-project, and allows to evaluate technically and economically a broad variety of business[…]
Client: Period: 2015 Work 3E was contracted for technically reviewing the PPA and advice the client on Grid Integration measures for a 27 MWp PV plant in Burkina Faso. 3E advised on the recommended interconnector sizes and power factor management.
Client: Period: 2015 Work For a 7.5 MWp PV plant near Gitega in Burundi, 3E was asked to perform a grid study including the modelling of the complete national high voltage and medium voltage grid in DIgSILENT PowerFactory based on single line diagrams and information from the grid operator. The assignment covers the[…]
Client: Period: 2015 Work For the connection of a 33 MW PV Plant in Mali, 3E conducted the information gathering, network modelling, model validation with the grid operator, load flow studies, contingency studies, short circuit studies and transient stability studies. Within this project, 3E travelled to Mali and established contact with key staff[…]
