System integration wind
The implementation and transport of large scale deployment of wind energy to the Dutch energy system requires heavy-duty infrastructure; infrastructure which enables energy companies to deliver electricity where it is most profitable while preventing congestion of the grid. Surpluses in one country can be easily transported to another.
Wind energy system integration
TNO is researching the technologies and markets that will enable the efficient transport, conversion, and storage of energy generated from onshore and offshore wind power.
Our latest developments
Wind farms in synergy with society and environment
The aim of TNO is to ensure that future wind farms are built as much as possible in symbiosis with all these parties, especially nature and the environment.
Energy islands for conversion, transport, and storage
Part of the future of wind energy are energy hubs at sea. TNO researches generation, storage and distribution of energy between countries.
Safe and flexible integration and monitoring of wind farms in a hybrid energy system
TNO is working on getting wind farms, solar farms, electrolysis units and battery systems to integrate as one sustainable hybrid power plant.
Required infrastructure to integrate offshore wind into the energy system
The strong growth of wind at sea means that more and more wind energy has to be fed into the energy system. TNO is investigating what infrastructure is needed for this.
Maximising the value of wind energy in the future energy mix
The playing field for wind energy is about to change. TNO investigates how the value of wind energy can be maximised.
