There are numerous research activities in which you can participate when following the Master programme:
RenQi is an open innovation platform, which is a collaboration between Hanze UAS, KEMA and TNO. Teams of professionals and students work together in applied research projects.
The RenQi research topics are:
1. Flexibility, reliability and comfort
2. Integration of renewable energy systems
3. Rules and regulations
4. Integration of ‘green’ gas or bio gas
5. Consumer behavior

The Centre of Applied Research and Innovation – Energy (CARI-E) is a broker in and translator of expertise in the field of energy. The centre offers education and training. It can also carry out energy projects for businesses.
The goal of the Flexines Project is to show that the energy needs of individual households can be geared to the energy supply at any given moment, by means of energy tariffs that are flexible from moment to moment. The point is to ultimately link the energy needs to the energy production from sustainable sources (wind, sun, biogas), and in particular to ensure that tarrifs keep reflecting the shortage in the energy market correctly.
The Energy Delta Gas Research (EDGaR), a Dutch research consortium of ten enterprises and research institutes, coordinates the realization of scientific, applied and technological research on gas and sustainability. Participants of the consortium come from the industry (Gasunie, GasTerra, Kiwa, Enexis, Liander and Stedin) and scientific institutions (ECN, University of Groningen, Delft University of Technology and Hanze University of Applied Sciences).
Three themes: from mono to multi gas, the future of energy systems and the changing gas markets. It will develop over a 5-year period and, at its maximum development, it will include approximately 20 projects carried out by a staff of approximately 100 researchers. The total research budget is 42 million EURO. An additional 2 million EURO account for management and knowledge transfer.
EDGaR is a non-profit research foundation. It is hosted by the Groningen Energy and Sustainability Programme (GESP), at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands.
