King Willem-Alexander opens ELEO battery production plant in Helmond
- Development of battery technology and applications
Several companies at the Kempisch Bedrijvenpark in Hapert have started a feasibility study together with the Kempen municipalities, Enexis and Brainport Development on the development of an Energy Hub. Such a local energy network should make companies less dependent on the currently limited capacity of the energy grid. The feasibility study is partly made possible by the Eindhoven Metropolitan Region. On Friday, December 9, the parties involved will sign a declaration of intent for the development of the hub. The Province also supports the ambitions.
Energy hubs make optimum use of local sustainable energy and ensure a balance between the generation, storage and consumption of energy. It is also possible to make direct connections between different types of sustainable energy as well as with users of green energy. In this way, energy hubs give an impulse to sustainable, reliable and affordable solutions for energy transition.
The study will be conducted by Firan. Through energy scans, the consumption profile and generation of energy are mapped and the bottlenecks are analyzed. This results in a concept energy hub and a business case. This concept should later be applicable to other business parks. Enexis is also very interested in the study because it can relieve the network.
The first results should be delivered in the course of 2023.
