Clean, sustainable energy for all
 

The companies, knowledge institutes and public authorities in Brainport Eindhoven are committed to generating various forms of fossil-free and renewable energy, storing that energy at increasingly low costs and using ever less materials when doing so. The energy transition and the realization of the energy and climate goals constitute a global challenge that touches upon all facets of life and that starts close to home.  Offering various opportunities for the knowledge intensive manufacturing industry located in this region.

Innovation for the energy transition

Companies, knowledge institutes and government in Brainport Eindhoven are working on the energy transition by focussing on four topics.

The coming years

The coming years, we will focus on rendering the energy transition more affordable. This requires a way of thinking inherent to the high-tech region of Brainport Eindhoven, while taking account of standardization and the ability to scale up any developed technologies. Scalable and efficient storage and conversion technologies are needed to solve the storage problem with respect to renewable energy and to generate the necessary impact in the sectors of our economy that are hard to decarbonize, such as the heavy-duty transport and the chemical process industry. Brainport Eindhoven has extensive knowledge in the field of electrochemical conversion and materials and manufacturing techniques. Giving the region a strong position in terms of development of new battery technologies and new types of energy carriers, such as hydrogen and metal powder, which can be used in a CO2-neutral way. This requires close cooperation between public authorities, OEMS, manufacturing companies and knowledge and educational institutes. Like the existing cooperation in regional field labs such as Brainport Smart District, where new energy solutions are developed, tested and validated at one single location.
