Sustainable dilemmas

Published on {{ $filters.formatDateWithYear(1675119600000) }}

We all feel the urgency to achieve the agreed climate targets, but easy solutions alone won’t get us there. We want to charge cars, but there isn't enough grid capacity. We want to make our homes more sustainable, but we can’t afford it due to the high energy costs.

These and other paradoxes were the main focus during our Sustainable Dilemmas symposium. On 15 November 2022, we celebrated the one-year anniversary of our innovation office in Groningen. This is where Witteveen+Bos is working with the Energy Transition Centre and other partners on innovations in the energy transition. Zooming in on Sustainable Dilemmas for a full day yielded some inspiring and valuable insights. The common thread was the urgent need for the market and the science sector to come up with solutions for the hidden drawbacks of a rapid energy transition.
