SCALE-UP - Connecting innovators to corporates

SCALE-UP Logo

The Interreg North Sea Region project SCALE-UP is a cooperation of six European cleantech clusters from Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Denmark and Germany.

The project organises matchmaking events to connect small and medium-sized cleantech companies with large enterprises. The aim is to initiate joint investments, research projects or pilot projects.

Contact person for the project is Martina Christiansen.

The project is funded by the European Union - European Regional Development Fund.

Upcoming events

TU Delft - The Green Village

TU Delft is known for its ground-breaking research, excellent education and innovative cooperation with external partners. Campus and Real Estate (CRE) supports this. CRE develops and erects new buildings as well as renovations, manages and maintains buildings and sites and provides energy on campus.

CRE and The Green Village are looking for integral solutions to solve challenges around the energy transition in the built environment. This includes solutions for a smart multi commodity grid (SMCG).

  1. Within a few years, the limits of the capacity of the electrical grid of the campus will be reached. This could lead to power failures with severe effects on critical processes and long-term research experiments. To prevent this, we could invest heavily in grid reinforcements. But we prefer first to look for other solutions. We are looking for solutions which can help us to:
    1. reduce power peaks
    2. divide the energy demand more evenly during the day (energy buffering)
    3. get more insight in the division of the energy demand on the campus (sub-monitoring)
  2. The transformation to a Smart Multi Commodity Grid (SMCG). An SMCG is an essential step into the energy transition. Without an SMCG it isn’t possible to optimize energy usage, CO2 emissions, but also energy costs. Therefore, we are looking for solutions which can help us to:
    1. control and monitor integral a multi commodity grid (electricity, water, heat, gas)
    2. develop control strategies which are optimized for energy usages, CO2 emissions and/or energy costs in total
    3. maintain stability in the grids
