On October 18, IMDEA Energy participated in the event “Descarbonización e Ingeniería: obligadas a entenderse [Decarbonization and Engineering: forced to understand each other]”
Last week, IMDEA Energy participated in the event “Descarbonización e Ingeniería: obligadas a entenderse [Decarbonization and Engineering: forced to understand each other]” organized by Catedra Smart-E2 focused on energy efficiency, emerging technologies and advances in topics such as energy audits, smart grids, sustainable transportation and energy efficiency technologies.
The event took place on October 18, at the Móstoles Campus of the Rey Juan Carlos University (URJC) where representatives of several companies presented initiatives and projects related to decarbonization to students and graduates of engineering degrees.
Félix Marín, Head of Technology Development and Transfer at IMDEA Energy, gave a presentation that due to the topicality and impact of the projects aroused the interest of the attendees who participated in the subsequent debate.
PROMETEO was one of the three projects presented:
- PROMETEO on the production of green hydrogen through heat and solar energy in high-temperature solid oxide electrolyzers;
- Sharp-sCO2 about the increase the efficiencies and temperatures of current solar thermal plants using air as a thermal fluid;
- Sol-Future and Nova-CO2 on photochemical technologies for the valorization of CO2 and its transformation into useful products for industry or for use as fuels (H2, CH4, C2+, NH3).
The project partner IMDEA Energy (IMDEA) is one of 7 independent R&D centres that form a research initiative driven by the regional government of the Comunidad de Madrid, Spain. In PROMETEO, IMDEA leads the system modelling activities by providing expertise on flowsheeting and system analysis of renewable energy technologies. IMDEA is in charge of developing the tools and implementing the performance analysis for the static modelling of the energy system.
