The transition from fossil to renewable energy sources is in our view necessary, feasible and attractive. The 'Trias Energetica' (energy saving where possible, maximum use of renewable energy and the highest energy efficiency for the remaining use of fossil fuels) may well go together with the 'Trias Economica "(innovation, economic 'green' growth and the creation of new jobs).

Focus ETG

Local energy initiatives by companies and citizens can make a significant contribution to the energy transition because decentralized energy is becoming increasingly competitive with centralized energy and because local energy initiatives are better capable to create the essential public support. A consistent and stable government policy is important to facilitate local initiatives and to balance those with the development of the central energy infrastructure.
