New Energy Coalition partners in ITEG Project
New Energy Coalition is partner in the project ‘Integrating Tidal Energy into the European Grid’ (ITEG), launched in June. The ITEG project is focused on the development of an integrated solution for the generation of sustainable energy, taking network limitations in remote areas into account. The project brings together 10 partners from the private and public sector and has a term until mid-2021.
About the ITEG Project
The ITEG Project is focused on the decrease of carbon emission in remote areas, by developing an all-in-one solution for the generation of sustainable energy. This solution includes the generation of clean predictable energy, grid management and the production of hydrogen from excess capacity. The applications are being developed for the Orkney islands, an archipelago in North Scotland, but can also be operational on other islands or isolated areas.
The ITEG Project is an €11 million Interreg project and has 10 participants from the private and public sector: EMEC (European Maritime Energy Centre), Scotrenewables Tidal Power, AREVA H2Gen, Agence de Développement pour la Normandie, Constructions Mécaniques de Normandie, Energy Systems Catapult, New Energy Coalition, University of Caen, Le Havre en Ghent. The leader of the project is EMEC, the largest test centre for Tidal Energy worldwide.
Besides practical and targeted research, a large demonstration of Tidal to Hydrogen will be set up at EMEC. New Energy Coalition will be involved with the input of the cross sectoral approach that comes along with the ITEG development. Connections will be made with the EU supported TSO2020 project, as well as with other hydrogen projects, networks and companies active in this area.
