Switch to the hybrid energy system

How will our future electricity grid remain stable and affordable? Watch the webinar from 1 February 2023 and get an insight into the technological and societal solutions for our future energy system.

Future energy system

We are going through an energy transition, where wind and solar energy will be the main energy sources of our future energy system. The variable nature of these sources increase the need for flexibility in the system, not in the least because of the huge industrial electrification. Storage and hydrogen production bring balance to the system and heat and hydrogen ‘products’ open-up new markets.

Switch to the future

Energy management systems are needed to manage such hybrid systems and, more importantly, validation and demonstration is necessary before large scale implementation. For this reason TNO and Wageningen Research joined forces and raised the SWITCH field lab facility. A unique hybrid sustainable power plant lab on a small scale.

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. Wageningen Research focuses on the potential applications of this type of smart energy grid in rural areas.
