Geo-energy research

Energy transition requires a combination of energy sources, technologies and applications. An important role is reserved for geothermal energy. At present, this is mainly used in horticulture to heat greenhouses, but it is also becoming an increasingly attractive alternative to disconnect homes from natural gas. TNO also focuses on the storage of energy and CO2.
