ENGIE-Lab Laborelec is a leading expertise and research centre in electrical power technology. The company is active on the whole electricity value chain and backs a large set of customers in the fields of generation, transmission, distribution, storage and final use.
Engie Lab CRIGEN, affiliated entity of Laborelec, is a R&D centre devoted to green gases (hydrogen, biogas and liquefied gases), new energy uses in cities and buildings, industry and emerging technologies.
Main tasks in ELECTRO
Engie Laborelec will lead the study on grid integration and off-gas valorisation. Engie Lab CRIGEN will support LBE on the subject of circular economy models.
Key people on the project
Dr. Ir. Eric Nens is a senior expert and senior project manager in electrical power systems and electromagnetic compatibility. He has extensive experience managing major projects in the design, construction and maintenance of high voltage installations, medium- and high-voltage substations, and power plants. For several years, he has specialized in energy storage technologies and decentralized generation in the context of the energy transition and the integration of renewable energy sources. With experience in power quality and measurements systems, he has focused more recently on electromagnetic compatibility and lightning protection projects and, in particular, the interference of HV power systems on metallic pipelines. In addition to having this wealth of experience, Eric is a dynamic and committed leader, fully engaging with customers to deliver quality outcomes.
Stijn Uytterhoeven graduated in 2008 from the Catholic University Leuven (KULEUVEN) as an electrical-mechanical engineer. He is an expert in power systems, power quality, energy management and integration of renewables in (hybrid) energy systems. He currently manages the activities around hybrid energy systems & flexibility and electrical mobility at Laborelec. These projects are mainly focused on both research activities to explore and applicate new technology, and on technical assistance by reviewing new or existing installations on a conceptual level. Advanced troubleshooting by complex measurements is also part of the activities in the portfolio. In the ELECTRO project, he is active in the flexibility analysis and grid impact of the concept of electrification of the olefin production process. He supports the project from a senior technical and management perspective for ENGIE Laborelec.
Jeroen Dommisse is a Project Engineer within the Renewables department of Engie Laborelec (Research and Innovation center of ENGIE). He is involved in different topics: batteries, hybridization of power plants/consumers and assess flexibility at production and consumption side.
Jeroen will be focusing on the WP4 tasks regarding the electrification and grid integration of the whole process included in the ELECTRO project.
