Hi, I am Zwerius Kriegsman and live in Ootmarsum, Holland. It's about 5 km from the German border.
During my time as a student at Lougborough University, UK in Renewable Energy Systems Technology I've done my Msc project about the status of high altitude wind energy systems.
I've been interested in renewable energy since highschool, but never worked in this field. I have about 30 years of experience in conventional power plants.
My experience is mainly in the field of process and mechanical equipment.
For the last fifteen years also in biomass co-combustion.
Our house has it's own grid-connected solar system of 15.5 kWp and an air/water heatpump for heating the house and domestic water. Our PV system provides all the electricity for heating, lighting, television, washing, etc. on a yearly basis. We use the grid as our storage. So I have some hands on experience in R.E.
