Energy Transition

Energietransitie (bron: EnergieNext).
One of the biggest challenges this century is in curbing climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The transition from conventional to sustainable energy requires a large-scale change at system level, also called transition. Solutions to achieve an energy transition are complex and often location-specific. This requires a multidisciplinary approach. Another reason why the realization of these projects is complex because many stakeholders are involved. These projects have financial, social, technical and creative aspects. For example, a high windmill will have the best return, but will be less readily accepted by local residents.
