Cleaner Energy Policy Makers' 'Travel Guide'

Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ENC) offers a 'Travel Guide' to help policy makers formulate clean energy strategies

The summary provides some key lessons and recommendations for policy making amidst the uncertainties and hectics that come with the energy transition.

‘Clients usually ask ECN to do quantitative analyses to get a better grip on a dossier’, says Marc Londo, author of the guide together with Michiel Hekkenberg.

‘‘This travel guide sketches the more fundamental and qualitative outlines of our energy challenge: what are current developments in certain themes and what do policy makers need to take into account to effectively steer towards a transition to cleaner energy?

The overall report (only available in Dutch) also goes into context factors specific to the Netherlands, but this two-page summary can be of general relevance for other countries as well.


The English summary with key messages can be found here .
