Ghent University plays with Power-Link an important role in the further development of knowledge within the field of renewable and sustainable energy (RSE) in Flanders by promoting the cooperation between research institutes, businesses and government (triple helix). On the other hand it acts as the signboard of Ghent University in the province of West-Flanders. Power-Link is located at the UGent GreenBridge science park in the inner port of Ostend.
Power-Link can bend on energy expertise from all competent research groups of Ghent University and knowledge institutions. This expertise serves educative, demonstrative and investment projects in the science park. For instance, actual projects focus on small wind turbines, alternative fuels and tank facilities, the hydrogen economy, smart tech in grid applications, etc.
