This research project gives an integrated technical and institutional design to outline how wind energy peaks can be converted into value-added products by making optimal use of the synergies that may exist in the Rotterdam Harbor area. As the number of hours that power prices are very low is limited, the existing industrial infrastructure and (local) market for steam and intermediate or final products is vital for reducing the (additional) investment cost for the power-to-value options, which improves their economic feasibility, in particular compared to other sites that lack such industrial clusters and local market(s). Consequently, the implementation of such “power-to-value” options in the Port of Rotterdam can contribute to the greening of the industrial processes in that area.
