ECN collaborates a great deal with other parties. These are parties in industry and science, but also the policy-makers. These generally involve joint projects in a European context. Here we have in mind projects that clarify the state of affairs of renewable energy in Europe, putting forward recommendations for reducing greenhouse gas emission and substances that contribute to air pollution. We also work jointly on major projects whose objective it is to develop new, innovative applications in the field of energy. These could include solar cell technology or new applications for wind energy. Below you will find a selection of our projects that ECN is participating in.
