New partner: New Energy Coalition and TNO combine knowledge and expertise
Working together to accelerate the energy transition is crucial to achieving the 2030 and 2050 climate targets. That is why TNO and the New Energy Coalition are expanding their collaboration. Both organizations have been working together on the energy transition on a project basis for some time. On May 20, Ton de Jong, managing director Energy Transition at TNO and Marieke Abbink, CEO of New Energy Coalition signed an agreement to formalize the collaboration.
New Energy Coalition brings parties together to create partnerships that accelerate the transition to a sustainable energy economy. TNO applies scientific research, connects people and knowledge to create innovations that sustainably strengthen the competitiveness of companies and the welfare of society. These overlapping missions and core values make it a smart and logical step for both parties to further shape the collaboration to accelerate the energy transition.
What does the collaboration entail?
In order to achieve the climate objectives and accelerate the energy transition, businesses, (knowledge) institutions and governments must innovate together to achieve breakthroughs in technology and knowledge, in economic and social applications and in the way people think and act. The collaboration is characterized by open innovation and cooperation between knowledge partners, governments and businesses and is focused on the application and development of new innovations that can be applied in our society at an accelerated pace.
New Energy Coalition and TNO are currently working with partners on the following projects, among others:
IJvergas – Multifunctional energy islands on the North Sea
Havenschets – The role of ports in the energy transition – HyDelta
HyDelta – Research into hydrogen infrastructure
Pocityf – Smart energy transition in historical cities
