SDG 7 is about ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for everyone Our Energy Transition unit works together with knowledge institutions, companies and the government to ensure that we will have an energy regime free of CO2-emissions in the Netherlands. We provides innovations from technical, social and policy perspective.
Support and acceptance of society are key elements for the success of the energy transition. We have created a whitepaper about energy poverty; how this can be measured, monitored and combatted from a policy perspective.
We are an internationally respected player in the wind power industry. That’s why we have been closely involved with the testing of GE Haliade-X, the biggest windturbine in the world. A turbine this size, could provide sufficient energy for more than 16,000 households.
