Embracing the Energy Transition: The Dutch Approach

The Netherlands is taking part in a global effort to develop a low CO2 energy economy that is safe, reliable and affordable. We are currently dependent on fossil fuels for almost 93% of our energy supply. During the coming decades, fossil fuels will continue to play a role in the energy system, but they will decrease in importance and new energy sources are needed. In the North Sea, the offshore energy sector is in transition from offshore oil and gas production towards offshore wind. Furthermore, CCS in offshore aquifers and depleted fields is being developed. This session highlights the roadmap The Netherlands has set out to a future-proof sustainable offshore energy supply system.
