The potential of tidal power in the Netherlands
In the past month, much attention has been paid to Tocardo’s activities in the Netherlands and the potential of tidal power in the Netherlands. Our power plant in the Dutch icon Eastern Scheldt barrier plays a starring role to underwrite the business potential. For everyone who missed it or who doesn’t master the Dutch language, here’s a summary for you!
We are very pleased that the Dutch platform Change Inc. lately published an article about the potential of this renewable energy source in the Netherlands and Tocardo in particular. Change Inc is a platform that connects people, business and ideas for a better future. Change Inc. is independent, objective and relevant. That makes Change Inc. a powerful and platform for people working on SDG’s. A brief summary of this article: A diverse energy network is a more secure, resilient and cost-effective. Wind and Solar alone cannot replace fossil fuel power generation, the complementary characteristics of tidal energy will be crucial for a successful transition.
Virtual Gateway to the Netherlands showcases OTP in VR
Tocardo OTP project is also present at the Virtual Gateway to the Netherlands. The Virtual gateway enables foreign business and governments to experience Dutch solutions and products without traveling but still connects with everyone involved. Get your VR cardboard ready and watch the video here!
Dutch Parliament and the VR experience
A Parliamentary debate was held on 10 June, in which the letter to Parliament regarding Electricity from Water was also on the agenda. Prior to the debate, DMEC handed over a photobook to gain attention for the sector and some of the present parliamentarians viewed the VR experience. During July the outcome of the debate will become public. In the Dutch province of Zeeland, tidal energy can contribute approximately 9% (1 PJ) per annum to the total production of renewable energy (11 PJ).
