Renewable electricity

The transition from fossil fuels and raw materials to sustainably generated electricity takes time and money. We’re therefore developing technologies to generate electricity from solar and wind more cheaply and more efficiently.

Cheaper and more effective electricity from solar and wind

Increasing renewable electricity is essential, but challenging. We’re developing technology for cheaper and more effective solar and wind energy.

Putting Europe back in the lead in solar panel production

Informatietype:
Article

Most solar panels come from China. Time to bring the solar panel production back to Europe. With smart solutions from TNO.

Digitisation improves the design and maintenance of wind farms

Informatietype:
Article

For the design of wind turbines and the subsequent efficient operation of wind farms, TNO uses the latest digital technologies.

Wind measurements and validation techniques

Informatietype:
Article

Before a wind turbine is launched onto the market, it must be approved. TNO is one of the few bodies authorised to carry out these certification measurements.

Applying robotics increases safety and reduces maintenance costs

Informatietype:
Article

Maintenance of wind turbines without human intervention. TNO is developing and testing concepts to automate and digitise maintenance with robotics.

Huge worldwide potential for floating wind turbines

Informatietype:
Article

If the sea is very deep, floating wind turbines are a solution. TNO is researching the possibilities of floating wind turbines, anchored to the seabed, for deep sea locations.
