The Platform Offshore Solar (POS) was officially launched on 1 January 2023. For now, the platform consists of a core group of Dutch companies whose ambition is the development and roll-out of offshore solar power, together with TNO.

Platform goals

The platform casts itself as a discussion partner for the government, Tennet, and other sectors and stakeholders active in the North Sea.

"As members of POS, we would like to cooperate on innovation, for example when it comes to ecological aspects and integration with offshore wind and and hydrogen production."

Chairman of POS

The industry partners unanimously underline the importance of good industry cooperation with the government. A good legal framework and good regulations regarding integration into the energy system could accelerate the development of offshore solar for the Netherlands. 3 GWp by 2030 is then easily achievable. In addition, offshore solar offers wonderful export opportunities for Dutch technology.

Every surface used for renewable electricity

If we want to generate green energy on a large scale, we’ll have to be smart in using the scarce space available in the Netherlands. Within 10 years, TNO will make it possible to use any surface to generate sustainable energy, with due regard for the landscape and the natural world. With our partners, we’re developing innovations such as floating solar farms and power-generating buildings and infrastructure. In this way, we’re contributing to the world of tomorrow.
