We focus on ten societal areas.
TNO cooperates with companies, the public sector and other organisations, to apply our knowledge and expertise with and for others.
We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
On TNO Insights you can read in-depth interviews and articles. Get inspired by TNO’s innovations!
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
Which applications, facilities and technologies for, for example, production of hydrogen are available? What can you do with hydrogen? What is the business case? What are the risks? How do we keep costs as low as possible?
Participate in this webinar, join the discussion, ask questions and get answers. Lennart van der Burg and Roel Natris of TNO will discuss the applications of hydrogen in the transition to a sustainable energy supply. TNO is involved in a large number of national and international projects in the field of sustainable mobility and logistics. TNO and partners are also working on pioneering technologies such as the conversion of electricity into heat (Power2Heat), the production of hydrogen via innovative electrolysers (Power2Hydrogen), the conversion of sustainable hydrogen into fuels (Power2Fuels also known as E-Fuels or Electrofuels) and the indirect thermochemical and direct electrochemical conversion of water, CO2 and nitrogen with the help of electricity to chemicals (Power2Chemicals).

Hydrogen is expected to play an important role in the transition to a sustainable energy supply, along with energy savings, electrification and bio-based materials. It offers the possibility to greatly increase the use and application of wind and solar energy. But there is still a long way to go before we have large-scale production of green hydrogen by splitting water with energy from renewable sources. And there are questions, such as affordability, safety, spatial impact and, by extension, public support. In three webinars TNO will discuss background and developments on hydrogen, including these questions:
