Energy transition of a sector in the Netherlands

Share this Post:

To realize the energy transition in the building sector, three types of obstacles have to be overcome: technology-related, process-related and integration of technology and process. To this end an innovation-implementation program has been constructed. The intrinsic driver of the program is the realization of increasingly more ambitious energy concepts in three successive waves, allowing for the different actors to learn from the previous wave, to prepare for the next wave and to scale up these type of projects both in terms of quantity and quality. The establishment process of the program identified a key success factor for the transition process itself: the role of the individual.
