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.

A ’smart window’ developed by TNO and partners in the Interreg project Sunovate, performs successfully in real world conditions according to preliminary pilot results. The window is designed to automatically switch between blocking heat from the sun and letting it pass. It is optimized to reduce energy consumption in moderate climates with cold winters and warm summers, such as in the Netherlands.
