Development of digital platform provincial Multiyear Energy and Climate Programme (pMIEK)

Published on {{ $filters.formatDateWithYear(1700694000000) }}

The province of South Holland and the national 'Working group on Integrated Programming' have given the green light to develop a digital platform. This digital tool supports the realisation of the provincial Multi-Year Programme Infrastructure Energy and Climate, pMIEK. A consortium led by Witteveen+Bos, Quintel and Antea Group have taken on this task.


Current and future energy system bottlenecks

For each province, pMIEK prioritises the infrastructural solutions for current and future bottlenecks in the energy system. Bottlenecks created by various (spatial) tasks in the province, such as housing construction and energy transition. Also, by sustainable electricity generation and especially by making businesses, homes, and mobility more sustainable.

For whom is the pMIEK tool?

The new tool is for provincial energy planners and pMIEK policy officers. They use the platform to investigate how targets are achieved and what the impact is. Think sustainable energy generation in a built-up area or realisation of a sustainability task in a sector. For these objectives, we express the impact of the chosen energy sources, infrastructure, and sustainability strategy in terms of below- and above-ground land take and energy efficiency.

Data-driven underpinning for policy making

The pMIEK 2.0 digital tool enables policymakers to make sound decisions on shaping the energy system of the future and its spatial integration based on quantitative information.

Who are part of the 'Working Group on Integrated Programming'?

Working Group Integral Programming is a collaboration of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, Interprovincial Consultation, VNG (Association of Netherlands Municipalities), Union of Water Boards (Dutch Water Authorities), Netbeheer Nederland, National Programme Regional Energy Strategy (NP RES) and TNO. It is supported by consultancy firm Groen Licht. interactively explore the potential of local energy systems
