Additional investments boost industrial electrification R&D

An additional €2 million will be invested by TNO in its industrial electrification activities within VoltaChem on top of the existing yearly contribution. This increase is the result of additional government investments in applied research by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and a recognition of the importance of the subject and the results attained so far. The funds will be invested in accelerating collaborative R&D in the VoltaChem program lines and in facilitating technology uptake by industry. First results of the additional investments will be expected at the end of 2018.
