Launch of AI for Energy Grids Lab

A sufficiently strong and smart electricity grid in the Netherlands is essential to be able to accommodate the energy transition and to achieve the goals of the Paris climate agreement. Therefore Alliander, TUDelft, Radboud University, UTwente and HAN are joining forces in the AI for Energy Grids Lab, by connecting AI professionals, knowledge, technological innovations, and insights. This AI lab will enable new initiatives in the application of AI in energy grids, such as graph neural networks en state estimation.

The focus areas of the AI for Energy Grids Lab are:

  1. Graph Neural Networks
  2. State Estimation
  3. Risk-based investments and operation
  4. Digital Mesh / Decentralized control of energy flows
  5. Explainable AI

Official launch

On 20 April 2022 between 15.00 – 16.30 hr the AI for Energy Grids Lab will be officially launched.


  • Social value of deploying AI in the energy transition – Kees van der Klauw (Coalition Manager, The Netherlands AI Coalition)
  • Changes within the energy networks – Pallas Agterberg (Challenge Officer, Alliander)
  • Introduction of the AI for Energy Grids Lab – Jochen Cremer (Co-Director Delft AI Energy Lab, TUDelft, and Lab Manager AI for Energy Grids Lab)
  • The AI for Energy Lab and the five focus areas – Werner van Westering (Principal, Alliander)

Building blocks

The NL AIC collaborates on the necessary common knowledge and expertise, resulting in five themes, also called building blocks. Those are important for a robust impact in economic and social sectors.


AI is a generic technology that is ultimately applicable in all sectors. For the development of knowledge and experience in the use of AI in the Netherlands, it is essential to focus on specific industries that are relevant to our country. These industries can achieve excellent results, and knowledge and experience that can be leveraged for application in other sectors.

Become a participant

The Netherlands AI Coalition is convinced that active collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders is essential to stimulate and connect initiatives in Artificial Intelligence. Within fields of expertise and with other stakeholders in the ecosystem to achieve the most significant result possible in the development and application of AI in the Netherlands. Representatives from the business community (large, small, start-up), government, research and educational institutions and civil society organisations can participate.
