GROW is a consortium of Dutch offshore wind industry and research partners which is contributing to the energy transition by working on the societal task of making the energy supply more sustainable. It carries out a coherent program of Research, Development & Demonstration (RD&D), ranging from more fundamental research to the demonstration or rollout of offshore wind energy innovations.
Research questions within the program include: How can the wind turbine installation process be improved further, at lower costs? How can the environmental impact of noise, for example, be limited or even be prevented? How can maintenance activities be carried out as effectively and efficiently as possible? The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy fully supports GROW. With this agreement they aim to further strengthen the position of offshore wind energy and of the Dutch wind sector.
