Data technology as an enabler for renewable energy
Curaçao has a modern National Energy Policy, which sets the objectives and priorities for the development of an effective and sustainable energy system with the goal to achieve 50% renewable energy penetration by 2030. Data technology will be an enabler for this objective which aligns with Curaçao’s ambition to become a smart country that embraces the development of data technology and Artificial Intelligence. Curaçao, therefore, welcomes this initiative of Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS) and LaNubia Consulting.

ILUSTRE – a living lab for AI innovations
ILUSTRE will be a living lab in the Caribbean with the objective to develop, implement and test AI innovations that will accelerate the use of clean energy and advance solutions in water treatment and wastewater recycling/purification. Alongside with these sustainable development objectives, the innovation partners aim at establishing an education platform for AI and data science for the Caribbean region.

ILUSTRE research program – PhD vacancies!
ILUSTRE offers opportunities for PhD candidates who wish to support to the acceleration of the energy transition and help accelerating technologies for clean water and sanitation. Ideally, the PhD candidates have an affinity with the Dutch Caribbean islands.

ILUSTRE will focus on the following research areas:

  • AI for decision support in water desalination, recycling and purification
  • AI for power load and renewable energy forecasting in electricity grids
  • AI for predictive maintenance in water and electricity infrastructure
  • AI for power grid balancing using recommendation-enhanced Demand Response
  • Social support for the real-world introduction of AI in critical infrastructure

For each of these research topics JADS is looking for a PhD candidate and during the webinar on September 8, the research program is further explained.
