    This technology database is created to provide means to gather data, provide information and show insight into electricity storage. Institutional and crowd-sourced data on technologies and products is featured, next to other information regarding energy storage. This information is meant to be available for (re)use in energy policy and scenario analysis. Please feel free to contribute data, information and insight to these pages.

  • Energy Research Center of the Netherlands (ECN) (Website)

    Type: 
    Publication

    The Energy Research Center of the Netherlands (ECN) website presents extensive research on the use of sustainable energy, energy conservation, and clean use of fossil fuels in the Netherlands. The website includes information and reports on research on solar cell module development, wind farm aerodynamics, second generation production of green gas from biomass, and carbon dioxide (CO2) capture also combined with hydrogen production. CO2 capture and storage (CCS) is an area in which the Netherlands is currently making important progress.

  • Fuel Switching: Institutional Factors of Influence

    Fuel Switching: Institutional Factors of Influence

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday 1 February 2000

    This report identifies institutional factors that can influence fuel-switching policy in the Netherlands and provides recommendations for increasing fuel switching at the household level. In the Netherlands, wet appliances (washing machine and water heaters) hold the greatest potential for fuel switching for environmental gain. The report determines that numerous organizational structures, political positions, economic interests and specific perceptions affect the market environment.

    Energy Efficiency Obligations in the Netherlands: A Role for White Certificates?

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday 1 September 2009

    This report tries to answer the question whether energy efficiency obligations might be introduced in the Netherlands and which lessons can be learned from other countries that have experience with such obligations (also named white certificates if they are tradable). The report does not answer the question of whether efficiency obligations might be more or less effective or efficient than other additional instruments.

  • Criteria for sustainable biomass production

    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    This report describes the results of work that has been done by the “Sustainable production of biomass” project group on formulating sustainability criteria for the production and processing of biomass for energy, fuels and chemistry. The project group compiled a set of generic sustainability criteria and corresponding sustainability indicators which are divided in to six themes:

  • Using adaptation tipping points to prepare for climate change and sea level rise: a case study in the Netherlands

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday 1 January 2010
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    Studies on the impact of climate change and sea level rise usually rake climate scenarios as their starting point. To support long-term water management planning int he Netherlands, this paper starts at the opposite end of the effect chain. The study refers to three aspects of water management:

    flood defence
    drinking water supply
    protection of the Rotterdam harbour.
