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 Virtual Reality. 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. We get the public involved using Virtual Reality, so that people get a better picture of the advantages and effects of windmills in their surroundings.

Products and services


Geodan offers useful tools to help companies and governments make decisions concerning the energy transition: PICO, Geomagine and a touchtable application Phoenix

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.
The Phoenix touchtable application lets your team work on policy plans as one, on one map that contains all information. Phoenix allows for effective collaboration on spatial issues.
