The heat domain offers great potential in the Netherlands for flexibility to accelerate the energy transition, as stated in the recent report ‘Het Energiesysteem van de Toekomst’ (TenneT – Dutch grid operator – et al.).
Sympower and AEB (Amsterdam’s waste-to-energy plant) share the ambition to unlock this flexibility in the heat domain by developing a smart energy platform: HeatFlex.ai. Using artificial intelligence (AI), the platform dispatches electricity, heat and steam in the most efficient and sustainable way.
This is part of Sympower’s partner strategy in the Netherlands: HeatFlex.ai with AEB, mobility with LeaseplanEnergy, and more to come.
Dutch energy magazine Energeia interviewed Rob van Ommen (AEB) and Dirk-Jan Middelkoop (Sympower) on how HeatFlex.ai uses algorithms to optimize over different energy streams in the system. Read the full article here (in Dutch).
