Watch the replay of our webinar about a reliable, affordable and fair energy system
When: 10 September 2020 – 15.00 16.00
Speaker: Peter Eecen R&D manager wind energy at TNO Energy Transition
Moderator: Sjaak van Loo Program Manager at TNO Energy Transition
In this free webinar we will address the vision of implementing large-scale offshore wind power, the required innovations and developments to overcome barriers and to further reduce cost of energy and addresses TNO-innovations to develop a thriving offshore wind sector.
For the realisation of our reliable, affordable and sustainable energy system large scale offshore wind power will be used and integrated. The ambition is to realise 60GW at the Dutch part of the North Sea. This is much more power than is currently used as electrical power in the Dutch energy system.
How do we make sure that this fits and works? An important solution is sector coupling and conversion and storage options connected to an offshore energy infrastructure to transport the large amounts of electricity and gas to the users on shore.
SPEAKER - Peter Eecen is R&D manager wind energy at TNO Energy Transition. and determines the wind research strategy for a group of 55 researchers in offshore wind energy. Peter has been working in wind energy for twenty years and is coordinator of EERA Joint Programme on Wind Energy, a collaboration of 53 European wind energy research groups. With energy and enthusiasm, he will give us the latest visions on implementing the energy transition from wind energy perspective.
