Energy transition: a sustainable future is the only future

Our ambition is to accelerate the energy transition together with knowledge institutions, businesses, and government, to create an energy system in the Netherlands which is free from CO2 emissions by 2050. In addition, we offer the Dutch business community the opportunity to take the lead and export their innovative products. This is how we want to strengthen the competitive position of the Netherlands.

Scenarios for a climate-neutral energy system

Explore this white paper to learn how smart combinations of energy lead to a sustainable and affordable energy system.

Accelerating the energy transition

In order to achieve the climate targets, it is necessary to accelerate the energy transition. The challenge is to reduce carbon emissions. This can be done by phasing in renewable energy at an accelerated rate, and phasing out fossil energy smoothly, while keeping the energy supply safe, available and affordable. Energy saving is also an important tool. The transition calls for major technical and social changes in all sectors of the economy, in governments and for citizens.

Strengthening the Netherlands' competitiveness

The transition to a carbon-free energy system requires technical, social and policy innovations. We conduct independent and internationally renowned research. We stand for an agenda-setting, initiating and supporting role for government, businesses and societal organisations.

Our 4 innovation programmes

Our ambitions are formulated in 4 coherent innovation programmes that are in line with the energy agenda and the coalition agreement. With these programmes, our aim is to achieve:
