Wij richten ons op tien maatschappelijke aandachtsgebieden.
TNO werkt veel samen met bedrijven, overheden en andere organisaties. Onze kennis en expertise is gericht op toepassing met en voor anderen.
We ontwikkelen kennis niet om de kennis, maar om de praktische toepassing.
TNO biedt je de kans om grensverleggend werk te doen en klanten en samenleving te helpen met innovatieve, praktische, slimme oplossingen.
Op TNO Insights lees je verdiepende interviews en artikelen. Laat je inspireren door de innovaties van TNO!

To sustain growth and prosperity, society and industry require reliable and efficient production processes that minimize environmental impact and resource consumption.
Future energy supply will depend on an even more complex mix of sources like wind, solar, hydrocarbons, geothermal, etc. The TNO experts of Heat Transfer and Fluid Dynamics provides innovative solutions to meet these challenges based on expertise in heat and fluid dynamics, mechanical engineering and measurement and control technology. Our experts use physical and mathematical models to minimize mechanical loads on HVAC and process systems and maximize efficiency, resulting in reliable and efficient production processes and buildings. In addition to modelling, we benefit from extensive laboratory test facilities and environmental chambers to analyze and evaluate the heat transfer and fluid flow performance of new concepts and validate the accuracy of models. Our understanding of measuring heat and fluid dynamics, noise and vibrations is further employed to analyze the performance of buildings and processing systems in practice, including offshore installations.

Within the unit Energy Transition of TNO, the department sustainable process and energy systems (SPES) is actively developing technologies that are going to support the energy transition of the Netherlands. With topics ranging from heat storage to electrification of the chemical industry, from capture of CO2 to valorization of waste streams to valuable chemicals, the enthusiastic team of researchers from SPES will share their experience with you. During this workshop we will walk you through our labs and present our bench scale and pilot demonstrators.
Department: Wind Energy
Speaker: Wessel van der Deijl
Studies: AE, CE, Inf, EE, Math, ME, PT
In order to reach the Paris Climate Agreement the Dutch government is aiming for large developments in offshore wind energy. In the following decades the Netherlands will build at least 2GW of wind power capacity per year, and perhaps even more than 3GW per year. This is the equivalent of 2-3 new wind farms of 100 wind turbines each per year. Building these numbers will already be an herculean effort, but after their commissioning large problems await as well:
Personnel: offshore wind is a harsh environment and guaranteeing safety is of paramount importance. How do we maintain thousands of wind turbines in the future?
Spatial planning: The North Sea will have to be shared with other users: shipping, fishing, military, etc. How do we keep the North Sea open for everyone?
During the workshop we will explore these topics and show how TNO works to tackle these issues.
