Sustainable solar on land and water

It is expected that in 10 years’ time, the Netherlands will generate 5 times more solar energy than it did in 2020. And in 2050, it will be 20 times more. A major roll-out of solar farms on land and water is needed to achieve this.

Solar energy in the surroundings

We’re conducting studies how a major roll-out of solar farms on land and water can be achieved without impacting the landscape, water quality or ecology.
