Future energy system
In order to have a grid driven by renewable energy in the future, we all need to make a big step today. System solutions are needed in order to optimally align the sustainable supply with the demand of end users.
Switch to the future
In the field lab SWITCH, that works as one sustainable power plant, TNO and Wageningen Research are conducting research together with partners. TNO is investigating how smart energy management solutions can support integration of large quantities of electricity produced by offshore wind farms into the energy system from 2030 onwards. Wageningen Research focuses on the potential applications of this type of smart energy grid in rural areas.
This webinar will discuss technological and societal solutions for our future energy system. There will be plenty of room for questions.

Profitability offshore wind in 2030 not self-evident
A new TNO study reveals that offshore wind will not be profitable in all cases. Using several scenarios, TNO investigated the feasibility of offshore wind energy in 2030.
Webinar: Offshore wind under pressure
Offshore wind energy is growing enormously, but this growth comes with challenges. To maximise the value of large volumes of wind energy in the future energy system, we need to ensure feasible business cases for developers.
Wind farms in synergy with society and environment
The aim of TNO is to ensure that future wind farms are built as much as possible in symbiosis with all these parties, especially nature and the environment.
Energy islands for conversion, transport, and storage
Part of the future of wind energy are energy hubs at sea. TNO researches generation, storage and distribution of energy between countries.
Safe and flexible integration and monitoring of wind farms in a hybrid energy system
TNO is working on getting wind farms, solar farms, electrolysis units and battery systems to integrate as one sustainable hybrid power plant.
