On our way to a more sustainable planet

How can we make the switch from fossil fuels to sustainable energy sources? That’s the great challenge of the energy transition. Geodan can help. For example by mapping out where the most energy is consumed and finding the most promising locations to generate renewable energy.

To reduce our impact on the environment, we simply have to get rid of fossil fuels. That’s easy. But completely running the Netherlands on new, renewable energy is not. Doing so would require major changes to our small and densely populated country.

But how? Where can we install all the solar panels, windmills, and heat pumps required to provide our country with sustainable energy? And which parties will we have to bring to the table, because they are involved in those locations? Geodan visualizes this jumble of data in clear maps and user-friendly applications. That’s how we provide insight into where and how we can diligently get started with the energy transition.


In practice

In the transition to sustainable energy, there’s no time to lose, but parties such as housing corporations often don’t know where to start. Geodan helps by examining which neighborhoods and houses are suitable for, for example, heat pumps or heat networks.

case - Transform 40 000 woningen van het gas af

40,000 homes to stop using natural gas

Geodans Energy Transition Viewer gives Transform and policymakers information about the potential of neigbourhoods and streets to successfully stop using natural gas.

Visualisation of Transition Vision heat

The Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency asked Geodan to host the outcomes of heat strategies and visualise them as digital maps in a web application.

Visualization of Dutch nature quality

Geodan’s Nature Network Nature Quality Calculation Module and BIJ12 provide insight into issues such as soil quality and flora and fauna.

It’s all in the data...

Access to reliable and comprehensive spatial data is vital to the success of sustainability projects. Where do you start with natural gas-free neighbourhoods? Where are the areas with potential to install solar panels in wind turbines in your town, and what challenges in an area can be taken on in their entirety?

The best datasets

By answering these and other relevant questions using location data, you can glean valuable insights, prioritise certain projects and discover interrelations in order to make maximum use of space, funds and financial resources. In addition, you can use the information and knowledge gathered to highlight transition issues from different angles.

Geodan has available hundreds of map layers per neighbourhood with information on gas consumption, waste heat resources, heat networks and total social costs.

Products and services


Geodan offers useful tools to help companies and governments make decisions concerning the energy transition.

A Digital Twin is a digital replica of reality. By combining several datasets, an increasingly better picture of the environment emerges in the Digital Twin. You can develop plans that appeal to as many stakeholders as possible and that can be tested by various target groups.
Our datasets and services offer all sorts of valuable information, ranging from insight into the number of stories in a building to predicting stop times.
