Satellite applications for a sustainable future

Worldwide demand for energy is increasing, while fossil fuels are becoming increasingly depleted. Accurate information is of vital importance for a sustainable energy future. Information that is gathered from space.

For now, we cannot do without oil or gas. To safely extract these resources from the ground, satellites are used to accurately measure wind, water currents and soil conditions. In parallel, the Netherlands is working on future energy technologies. Such as solar power plants, using sensors originally developed for space.
