Challenges for the energy transition

During the 13th of June we will discuss all the challenges for the energy transition. How do we produce and consume electricity in 2050? Which changes are necessary in both the supply and demand side of electricity? What role can offshore wind energy play? And how will the grid cope with these changes? In 3 consecutive English sessions we discuss changes in the supply side and system integration, the demand side of the market and necessary grid adjustments.

Exclusive talks by top speakers from institutions such as Topsector Energie, DNV-GL, TNO and Netbeheer Nederland can be expected.

The regional energy transition in The Netherlands

The biggest challenge for onshore wind energy development can be found in de regional approach of the energy transition. Development of renewable energy projects needs to fit in with the regional demands. The role of governments and project developers changes: the regional approach and Omgevingswet imply more cooperation and sharing responsibilities, for example with the quickly growing amount of cooperatives.

Do you, as a municipality or project developer, want to be well prepared for this regional approach and are you curious to hear which role you can take in this approach? Join us on the 14th of June and learn from, among others, Martine van Gemert (innogy), Ilse van Veghel (IN.credible) and Rutger Schonis (Energieke Ruimte B.V.) what would be the best approach for you. These sessions are in Dutch.

Community wind farm on the sea lock
ENERCON has made a name for itself in the Netherlands over recent years with the installation of wind energy converters on dykes. One current reference project in the Zeeland province is Krammer wind farm with 34 x E-115/3.0 MW wind turbines on the Krammer locks.

The site is in Philipsdam, which is part of the “Delta Works” flood defence system and separates the Krammer and Volkerak bodies of water from the Oosterschelde. The 34 x E-115 WECs are being erected on hybrid towers each with a hub height of 122 metres.
The Krammer wind farm is owned by two community-owned cooperatives with more than 4,000 local members. This makes Krammer the largest community-owned wind farm in the Netherlands today. 95 percent of the energy generated by the wind farm will later be supplied directly to international commercial enterprises via Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs).
