Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO122: NEST Facilities - A new Distributed Danish Research Infrastructure for Energy Transition Research and Development

Gregor Giebel, Senior Scientist, DTU


The National Energy System Transition Facilities (NEST Facilities) interlinks physically disconnected laboratories to create one large connected set of energy system laboratories with the ability to mix and match the individual pieces to accelerate the energy transition. Five laboratories at DTU, Aalborg University and Aarhus University combined with large scale demonstration facilities at Lindø Offshore Renewables Center (LORC), GreenLab Skive and the National Test Centres for large wind turbines at Østerild and Høvsøre cover all technology, power and TRL levels needed for research in the energy system of the future dominated by wind energy. In order to achieve 70% CO2 reduction in 2030, or the fully renewable energy system in 2045, we need to test new technologies, energy vectors, business models and regulatory regimes in computers, small laboratories and full scale demonstrations. The coupling of a green distributed energy system lab at Risø, a hybrid wind power plant at Risø, an electrofuel facility in Foulum, a newly established power-to-x and microgrid facilities at Port of Aalborg A/S, enables to use all possible bricks in the future energy system and test one in the interplay with all others. The development of new technologies can seamlessly move from one lab to the next, and finally end up in full-scale demonstration in e.g. GreenLab Skive, the Østerild National Testcenter or the nacelle and other test stands in LORC. In short, the coupled NEST Facilities will become a Danish renewable power incubator to help new energy system technologies to get ready to fly.
