A reliable, affordable and sustainable energy supply is of great importance in every society worldwide. An adequate energy supply is not a given fact, since the energy sector changes rapidly: rising energy consumption, continuing electrification and a gradual transition away from fossil fuel sources, all underline the need to adapt our energy system. Under pressure from climate change, it is also imperative to make a rapid transition to renewable sources of energy.
The challenge we currently face is how we can facilitate and enable a rapid and smooth transition. That is a challenge for the Netherlands and a challenge for the world. The integration of these renewable energy sources places new demands on the entire energy chain, from generation to consumption. It also offers new opportunities for authorities, companies and citizens. As supply and demand adjust to changing market conditions, opportunities are created for new entrants.
Energy Watch has the ambition to play a role in accelerating the energy transition from fossil fuels to an energy system entirely based on renewable energy sources.
