Workshop Roelofs

The Climate Agreement aims to reduce CO2 by 49% by 2030. The energy transition is now in full swing to achieve this. This has major consequences for the layout of the public space. 

“Energy transition” stands for the transition from electricity from fossil fuels to sustainable energy, such as energy from wind, sun and water. The National Program Regional Energy Strategy has been set up to provide guidelines for this. Municipalities, provinces and water boards are working together with social and private organizations to draw up such a regional energy strategy (RES). Parts of this RES are the transition vision for heat (TVW) and the sustainability (making natural gas-free) of the neighborhoods (WUP). 

Roelofs sees this as the biggest change to the (underground) infrastructure in decades. Drawing up a heat vision requires a thorough analysis. Converting to an effective strategy with a concrete implementation program is also a complicated task. A big change requires good preparation. That is why Roelofs looks at all agendas that influence maintenance / restructuring plans, among other things. In doing so, we make use of the (joint) linking opportunities surrounding climate adaptation and the circular economy. Our starting points are flexible, feasible and integral. 

This workshop examines the issues surrounding energy transition.
