Texel Energy Challenge

The Island Challenge: a challenge for innovative students in chemistry & energy
November 15th, 2017  


Ammonia is a well known chemical commodity and feed stock for fertilizers. Next to that it is a good candidate for a large-scale, low-carbon, energy carrier of the future. New value chains based involving Power-to-ammonia can provide the flexibility required in the future with an increased share of intermittent renewable energy, facilitating the energy transition for the Netherlands to meet its greenhouse gas emission target for 2020. During the ISLAND CHALLENGE you are asked to determine and pitch the technical and economical feasibility of the power-to-ammonia concept for the Island of Texel. An expert jury consisting of representatives from Texel and the chemistry- and energy sector will evaluate your contributions.


Mixed teams will consist of 4 students of the Topsector Chemistry and Topsector Energy
