Hello! Next week the Cenex-LCV and Cenex-CAM 2020 event will take place on 18th and 19th November. A yearly event organised by our partner Cenex in the UK. Normally, this is a physical event at the Millbrook proving ground just outside Milton Keynes receiving nearly 5000 visitors in 2019. Due to the Covid-19 situation, this event will now take place online.
Besides the seminars, you can visit exhibitors virtually and start a chat if you wish. We as Cenex Nederland will also be present and host one of the technical talk seminar session. Stop by for a visit next week!
Hoping to see you there!
Jorden van der Hoogt,
Assistant Technical Specialist
Are you interested in a career where you help shape the future of mobility? We are looking to potentially hire two Technical Specialists to join our team on a full-time (37 hours per week) / permanent basis. The roles of Technical Specialists cover a range of expertise and experience levels. You would become part of a small but growing team of experts in Amsterdam. We also work closely with our strategic partner Cenex in the UK. Cenex Nederland is a relatively flat organisation, fostering a work environment where we both support each other and encourage self-initiative and independence, and where communication is key.
For the current positions, we are looking for people with a good match in two different specialism areas. Does this peak your interest? Check out both applications, download the individual job vacancy specs on our website:
Technical Specialist – Circular, LCA and Eco-design Technical Specialist – Zero-Emission and Smart Mobility
Free webinar organised by Cenex Nederland and Stevin
Free online event | June 10 15:00 – 17:00 CET
Energy systems are becoming more complex and decentralised due to the increasing production of renewable energy sources and energy storage systems and their specific constraints in flexibility and availability. In addition, the increased need for the charging of electric mobility, especially in transportation-hubs, create serious societal challenges. These developments ask for a smarter way of dealing with energy supply and demand and require a better use of existing and new infrastructure.
Energy-hubs and smart charging technologies can provide solutions to address the challenges we are currently facing or will be facing soon. In this webinar Stevin and Cenex Nederland will give two keynotes on these subjects. Stevin is a management consultancy firm that is specialised in Asset Management in energy and mobility infrastructure. Its experience with municipalities, grid operators and (public) transport authorities has enabled Stevin to create a framework to achieve successful energy-hubs. Cenex Nederland is an Amsterdam based non-for-profit organisation delivering research and consultancy projects in zero emission vehicle technology and related infrastructure. Cenex Nederland works together with its strategic partner in the UK, Cenex (est. 2005).
This webinar is interesting for you if you are involved in:
The development of transportation-hubs
The electrification of (public) mobility
Procuring and implementing solutions for energy distribution and charging infrastructure
Incorporating the Renewable Energy Directive (RED2) and Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPDB)
Developing city strategies for energy transition and Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs)
Built environment energy- and fleet management
Session 1 Energy-hubs
Keynote speaker(s): Rogier Pennings & Luuk van Loosdrecht (STEVIN)
The rapid electrification of public mobility has a big impact on transportation-hubs due to the growing need for charging infrastructure. Coordination between municipalities, grid operators, public transport providers and nearby companies is fundamental to make these hubs efficient, both on an economic, environmental and social level. Such coordination will transform a transportation-hub into an energy-hub with various use-cases. Stevin gives a keynote on the concept of energy-hubs and the possible synergies and challenges that emerge while developing these energy-hubs.
In this session you will learn:
What energy-hubs are and how these relate to the energy transition and transportation-hubs.
The opportunities and challenges that are ahead of us and the role of stakeholders.
Our roadmap towards successful energy-hubs.
Session 2 Lessons learnt in procuring smart charging technologies
Keynote speaker(s): Esther van Bergen & Jorden van der Hoogt (CENEX NEDERLAND)
Electric driving is on the rise, and as a result you can see more and more EVs driving through the streets. But this also means that each of these vehicles needs to be charged by electricity, adding stress to the electricity grid. To address these challenges, smart technologies are developed to help reduce load on the net, match supply and demand in a more decentralised energy system and optimise the use of renewable energy. This keynote is based on the learnings from the Interreg SEEV4-City project, which includes six real-life operational pilots in four different (North Sea Region) countries. We will highlight practical insights from and explore the potential for wider-scale application of, the different solutions used.
In this session you will learn:
Where we stand in terms of charging technology developments.
How you can charge more EVs while reducing the need of grid investments.
What challenges you may face in procuring, installing and operating the equipment.
What the potential and barriers of wider adoption of different solutions may be.
