According to the ministry’s Director General Climate & Energy Sandor Gaastra, successful innovations can be realized relatively fast due to the intensive cooperation and knowledge sharing within GROW.

“The Dutch offshore wind sector represented in GROW is leading the way,” said Gaastra. “That is why my ministry signed a collaboration agreement with GROW. With this agreement we will further strengthen the position of offshore wind energy and of the Dutch wind sector.”

GROW is a consortium of 20 Dutch companies and knowledge institutes that have agreed on knowledge exchange and cooperation to reduce the costs of offshore wind and to increase the value in the energy system and in the ecosystem.

The consortium carries out a Research, Development & Demonstration (RD&D) program, ranging from more fundamental research to the demonstration or rollout of offshore wind energy innovations.

“To achieve the energy and climate goals, the government, industry, knowledge institutions and civil society organizations must work together even more. That starts with innovation. This agreement helps us to keep up the pace of innovation,” said GROW Chairman Peter Terium.
