Energy Transition Viewer

Working on the energy transition with ‘good’ energy and the right insights

Our energy supply must be almost entirely renewable by 2050. But how do RES and other programme managers and energy advisors successfully make the transition happen? How do you involve your stakeholders in your plans and make the right decisions when faced with time constraints? Geodan’s Energy Transition Viewer is a valuable tool in this process.

The challenge

The energy transition is one of the biggest challenges we will face over the next few decades. Detailed negotiations are being held at several levels, and deciding on alternatives is far from easy, as we are spoilt for choice when it comes to abandoning fossil fuels, with heating grids, full electric, storage, and insulating existing homes being just a few of the options. And how do we give both currently untapped and familiar renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy the most strategic locations in this overcrowded country?

Engagement and time constraints

Not all areas at the local level are equally suitable, and in addition all the available alternatives will have an impact on the physical environment, both aboveground and below ground. And once you have decided on a new source of energy or storage method, how do you get your community to back you? The reality is that most residents will be less than thrilled at the idea of a scheduled renovation project in their neighbourhood or the arrival of a windmill obstructing their view. And then, of course, there is the issue of time. How do you develop an effective integrated plan for 2021, keep track of the work, and keep things moving along?

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?

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.

The Viewer provides you with the tools you need for exploring new scenarios together, making the most informed urban-planning decision, and engaging in successful cooperation


Why the Energy Transition Viewer?

  • Efficient, dynamic, cost-effective

    Background card layers and key datasets for PBL, NP RES and others.
  • User-friendly; option to add own data

    Combining available data with own datasets
  • Insight

    Investigating multiple scenarios by aggregating relevant data from different sources

...seeing and realistic planning

The outcomes and the different transition scenarios can be easily added to the Energy Transition Viewer. This will give you a razor-sharp and dynamic picture of the situation. This will make it easier for you to create support among your stakeholders, as they will have a clear and honest picture of the impact of the plans on their environment, as well as enable you to achieve targeted results more quickly, based on realistic planning.

The best datasets

The basis for the Geodans Energy Transition Viewer are datasets and energy models created by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving/VESTA), the National Programme for Regional Energy Strategies, the BAG, Statistics Netherlands (CBS), and Geodans Energiedata (PICO data). You can also easily add your own datasets to the Energy Transition Viewer.


In addition to energy, the Energy Transition Viewer provides:

  • Solid energy and/or heat transition plans and measurable results
  • Maximum use of the capacity of the power grid
    Increased engagement and greater understanding of the plans
  • Further beautification of the Netherlands because all the available spatial options have been carefully examined

Appropriate services for every street

The councils of Apeldoorn, Deventer, Zutphen and Zwolle are working together on the Transform project to ensure that 40,000 homes can stop using natural gas at an earlier date. This presents quite a challenge, partly because the parties concerned are reluctant to apply for large subsidies. By reallocating funds in the project area, it should be possible to close the business case without any problem, and everyone should be able to join in the project without seeing their expenses rise.
