Want to know more about stimulating regional sustainable energy? Join our Speaker's Corner session at the EU Sustainable Energy Week Networking Village! 


17 municipalities from the Arnhem Nijmegen Region have joined an innovative way of procuring renewable energy and stimulating regional sustainable energy initiatives. Instead of separate and nonsustainable procurements, from January 1, 2018 all the electricity the municipalities buy will be sustainable and, in the end, regionally produced.


The region uses its power as a launching customer, thereby stimulating local sustainable energy initiatives. By procuring sustainable energy from parties that establish sustainable energy generation capacity in the region.

We know a lot of regions and other parties from Europe are interested and would like to exchange experiences. At the Speaker's Corner, we like to discuss the challenges we faced (and are still facing) and the potential of replication possibilities in other regions.
