Expert Heat Transition

in the Netherlands

Statement

In the Netherlands we aim to make a huge transition in the coming years to turn away from gas and into a smart combination of electric and district heating. The benefits are huge, but with gas so readily and cheap available we will need some major effort to get it done.
