There are a few different variations of the exo dynamics research aid boxes. Some of them require you to insert resources and others require power. For the one you have found, it sounds like it needs a certain amount of power. Far more than the generator you are using will provide. Sometimes, if you are using a tractor, it can be possible to connect the trailers to the box and it will open them if you have gathered enough wind turbines and solar panels while out exploring.

When you hover the cursor over the box, it will tell you what it requires to unlock. If its a resource, you will need to look at the icon of the resource that is printed on the box itself to know what you need to put in there.
