More information

Due to corona our lovely symposium “Waves” has had some hiccups. But of course we as a committee decided not to give up, thus introducing:
Symposium 2.omikron!!!
We will organize a hand full of lunchlectures for you to enjoy during the lecture free week. You can subscribe to each of them individually.

This lecture is about energy from waves. Professor doctor Antonis Vakis is an associate professor at Rijksuniversiteit Groningen at the department of ‘Science and Engineering’. Within his expertise of renewable energy he has worked on a novel renewable energy harvesting storage technology. This research has led to the invention of Ocean Grazer . This initiative uses a pumped hydro system to store energy in a so called Ocean Battery.

During his lecture, mister Vakis will elaborate on the role of water and waves in energy storage in order to solve the worlds energy problem.

We also have some goodies, so if you want this delivered to your home you can let us know by filling in your adress below.
