Integrated solar and safety

The area that we can use to generate solar energy in the Netherlands is large and continues to grow. We develop solar energy concepts for optimum integration into buildings and infrastructure, on water, in combination with agriculture, and on vehicles. New products and applications also bring new safety challenges.

Integrating solar energy and safety

We integrate solar energy into our environment, for example in buildings, infrastructure, and cars. This creates new challenges related to safety.

Insight
22 November 2022

Solar heat can make an important contribution to increasing the sustainability of our heat supply. Photovoltaic-thermic (PVT) systems on the roof can, in combination with a heat pump, supply homes with heat and hot water. This would make natural gas redundant, thereby decreasing carbon emissions. There are plenty of options, but what about the cost-benefit analysis?

29 June 2022
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.
