Symposium WaterbouwdispuutRead more
Symposium ‘Blue Current – Putting tidal energy in perspective’Symposium “Het Waterbouwdispuut”: “Blue Current” – Putting tidal energy in perspective.This years symposium will be held on Monday afternoon May 19th. The theme of the symposium will be: “Blue Current – Putting tidal energy in perspective”
The world will run out on its reserves of fossil fuel and alternative energy will be replacing all of it. Renewable energy sources are most favorable because of its low negative impact on public health and the environment.
The European Union is demanding a 20% renewable energy generation of its nations. A target which maybe is too ambitious for some (The Netherlands currently have 4,5%).
Tidal energy isn’t a new form of renewable energy. Tidal energy plants however, still very scarce, could be a possible great solution for some countries. Studies have shown that multiple locations around the world are suitable for vast tidal power plants. And countries like Korea are already investing in and constructing new tidal plants.
Sometimes the pros don’t outweigh the cons of implementing a renewable energy source. For example, placing large amounts of solar cells in cloudy Holland. Therefore we must, as future engineers, cast a critical eye on these matters. Look beyond the hypes and keep putting things in perspective!
The symposium will be hosted by Bas Jonkman (TU Delft). The following guest speakers will share their ideas and visions on tidal energy:
- Han Vrijling (TU Delft)
- Kees Hulsbergen (Dynamic Tidal Power)
- Roger Falconer (Severn Barrage)
- Jacob van Berkel (Pro-Tide-NL)
- Ruut Schalij (eRisk Group)
The symposium will start with lunch and coffee at 12:30. Afterwards there will be drinks at PSOR. Subscribe by sending an email to Symposium@waterbouwdispuut.nl. Members of “Het Waterbouwdispuut” and TU employees subscribe for free. Non-member students subscribe for €5,- and all other non-students for €15,-.
