|The energy knowledge platform Power-Link
is a recent, joint initiative of the Port of Oostende and Ghent University,
located at the Greenbridge science park in the outer port of Oostende.
As a centre of competence, Power-Link and its partnering university
colleges aim at maturing into a subregional information and technology
agency on sustainable and renewable
Power-Link provides a central information service on green energy
technologies and encourages rational, reduced and alternative energy
use. As a network partner, Power-Link interacts with the innovative
and creative move of the new production and consumption energy market
and, moreover, creates a research platform with an own clean tech
environment, i.e. the Greenbridge science park.
Greenbridge is the West Flemish
science park of Ghent University,
creating an innovative and enterprising climate in the Ostend region.
The park provides incubator facilities designed to help high tech
start-ups build up their company, next to a science park area of 20
ha open to new and experienced companies in promising domains such
as clean tech energy, nutra- and pharmaceuticals, environment, health
and wellness, etc.
In synergy with Power-Link, Greenbridge seeks hightech investors in
clean technology, in particular energy related, and aims at implementing
and demonstrating high potential techniques. Hence Greenbridge intends
to contribute to the low carbon economy and to meet the requirements
of an eco-industrial park. Emerging research and investment projects
concern plasma technology, green hydrogen applications and grid R&D.
