Solar energy

The sun is an infinite source of energy for all life on earth. For several decades, we humans have been able to convert the light of this star into electricity and heat. In time, we can be independent of the use of fossil fuels. A smart approach is required to lead our pathway forward to a positive solar future. TNO is therefore innovating in order to make solar energy affordable and available to all.
