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 are extended for application in other sectors.

Energy and Sustainability

The Netherlands has a vibrant digital ecosystem offering solutions for energy, climate and mobility. They all face similar AI challenges. Hence, cooperation is necessary for a favourable economic and climate impact. The ambition is to use AI to achieve a reduction in energy costs, strengthen the energy infrastructure and transition to infrastructure projects with a favourable climate impact, thus benefiting the environment.

AI, for example, can significantly save cost at the regional grid-level using smart maintenance and targeted operations, such as locating the precise cause of power outages. In half of the cases, malfunctions are caused by internal defects and ageing, which can be prevented by AI monitoring. In the case of energy infrastructure, where several energy carriers work together, AI can contribute to the proper matching of energy supply and demand and the redesign of energy infrastructures taking into account multiple energy carriers.

Working group

The Energy and Sustainability working group is working to bring together ongoing initiatives and to facilitate cooperation, for example, by making agreements on access to and use of data and interfaces. International collaboration within the Horizon Europe research and innovation programme and partnership with Germany, France and the USA are also being shaped.
