Largest Energy Savings Operation Ever
Next year a nationwide information campaign will put into motion the largest energy savings operation ever. Writes Dagblad Trouw on Tuesday. The environmental movement, the government and the energy sector want to let the campaign 'jump start' a national support for the transition to a sustainable energy supply. This is evident, according to Trouw, from a confidential draft report, part of the National Energy Agreement. In 2020, at least 1 million households and businesses have to get their electricity from renewable energy sources, such as wind and sun. Also, all residential buildings must be energy neutral, which means that consumption should not exceed what is generated, in or near the building, by renewable energy. There is still discussion about which measures should be imposed.
