Wind energy

To limit the impact of climate change, the Netherlands is working on an energy system that will not emit any CO2 by 2050. In this new system, a lot of renewable energy will be gained from the sun and wind. Wind energy will be the principal part of this, especially at sea. To accelerate the implementation of wind energy, TNO is supporting both the Netherlands’ public authorities and the energy sector with advice, research, and development.

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.

New wind energy technology

Informatietype:
Article

Offshore wind energy will experience significant growth in the coming decades, both technologically and in the amount of capacity installed. TNO is working on new techniques and methods.
