Given the current energy crisis, companies are opting more and more to self-produce renewable energy. From this perspective, E. Van Wingen has the ambition to develop combined heat and power generations (CHP), running on biofuels or hydrogen (instead of using diesel). And this is exactly one of the topics E. Van Wingen is working on in AVATAR.
In the article, Jean-Pierre and Eleonora Van Wingen emphasize to focus on efficient local production and consumption of energy. And that’s the starting point of the AVATAR energy use case, in which city freight distribution vessels are sailing during daytime and charging the batteries at night (using a ICE CHP running on hydrogen). While the ICE CHP is charging the vessels, heat is released. In the AVATAR approach, this heat will be stored in a buffer tank that is part of a central heating installation. Project partner E. VAN WINGEN NV takes the lead for this use case.
