Dutch Minister of Climate and Energy, Rob Jetten, has unveiled a Climate Package that mandates the addition of battery energy storage systems at solar parks. This innovative approach is designed to address the ongoing issue of power grid overload.
Minister Rob Jetten has introduced a set of 120 additional initiatives, the cumulative impact of which is projected to reduce CO2 emissions by 22 megatons. This concerted effort is intended to ensure that the Netherlands achieves its emission reduction goals of 55 to 60 percent by the year 2030.
A key component of the Climate Package revolves around the aim to achieve a carbon-neutral electricity sector by the year 2035. To bring this vision to fruition, the government has outlined a strategic roadmap that includes the installation of 3 gigawatt-peak solar panels in offshore settings by the year 2030. Additionally, the plan involves the conversion of existing gas power plants to utilize hydrogen and introduces a new policy requiring the integration of battery systems within solar parks.
The integration of the battery systems within solar parks is the perfect mix for powering your energy efficiency. Companies can benefit from considerable and strong cost returns and unlock new revenue opportunities while improving their energy efficiency and resilience, and reducing their carbon footprint.
“’We are focusing on electricity storage by investing in battery innovations and by mandating batteries at large-scale solar parks” – Minister Rob Jetten.
At Ampowr we work to develop solutions and boost the energy transition, driven from behind the meter. Focusing on battery energy storage systems that directly supply electricity for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. We have deep knowledge and high-level expertise in energy transition procedures, and battery energy storage system installations from small to large-scale projects for any application.
