At TNO, we work with a team of professionals on making the built environment more sustainable. Key to this is reducing energy use, closing material cycles and ensuring a more efficient maintenance of buildings and infrastructure to extend their lifespan. In terms of energy in the built environment, we want to be a partner for innovation in the most important challenges facing the market. Our focus is on industrial concepts for renovation and new builds, the development of a new generation of heat pumps, heat storage and ventilation technology. We aren’t doing this alone, but in close collaboration with universities (of applied sciences), and as part of international consortiums in Europe. In addition, we work with the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, municipalities and housing associations, for which we want to find a link between technological development and policy, for instance in the area of energy performance standards and health.
