The way in which we generate and consume energy is changing rapidly. We use natural resources, such as the sun and wind. Through the use of appliances and vehicles, we are becoming increasingly dependent on electricity. At Enexis, we want to contribute to the acceleration of the energy transition, focusing on themes that align with our expertise.
When it comes to energy every area has its own opportunities en challenges. We want to help municipalities and provinces to realise there sustainability ambitions. We use alle forms of energy available locally in one integrated energysystem, like warmth, biogas and electricity.
The energychoices of companies and consumers are getting more and more important voor the energysystem. We stimulate market- and chainpartners to use or save energy that is generated locally. To make it more attractive we develop new market models and we set up testpilots.
Electric transportation is fast growing and offers opportunities for a sustainable environment. We support the transition towards sustainable mobility with practical research and smart charging solutions for consumers. We develop new techniques and we talk to local stakeholders about concrete charging solutions in the region.
The Netherlands want to save up to 1,5% energy per year. We help to make sure we can realise this deal written in the Energyagreement. We stimulate consumers to save energy. For example, we have the programme Buurkracht. We work together with local energie cooperatives and create teams of motivated residants. There are already more dan 150 Buurkracht neighbourhoods active with energy saving activities.
As a DGO it is important to follow realtime the supply and demand of (sustainable) energy. That’s why we add IT in our grids. Thanks to distribution automation we can control our grids at a distance and solve outages faster. In 2016 we had pilots with Distribution Automation Light. These little computers give us actual insights in the energyflows. This way we can prepare ourselves for a sustainable and decentralized supply of energy, with more heatpumps, solar cells and electric vehicles.
