Generation.Energy: bringing about the energy transition
The Dutch government’s energy agreement calls for 16% of the country’s electricity to be generated sustainably by 2023. Our ambition is bigger than that: we want to accelerate the energy transition! So we’re going to figure out what needs to be done to make that happen. Will we put a wind turbine in every back garden? Solar panels on every roof? A big wind park off the coast? Or all of the above?
This requires us to design and build energy landscapes in an integrated way. A new profession is gradually coming into being – one that calls for an interweaving of urban planning knowhow, landscape architecture skill, and a thorough understanding of energy technology and networks.
Generation.Energy is a spin-off of PosadMaxwan. Over the past several years, PosadMaxwan has comprehensively studied the relationship between energy and space. This complex and fascinating challenge merits a devoted company of its own.
Generation.Energy has already made great strides within a brief period. We are developing new tools to identify opportunities for sustainable electricity generation for various clients. Completed projects include the book Energy and Space: A Dutch Perspective, the Amsterdam metropolitan region’s energy plan, and regional energy strategies for Midden-Holland, the city of Leiden and the Eindhoven metropolitan area.
