Pondera Consult is a consultancy company founded in 2007. Pondera is the specialist in the field of renewable energy. As a relatively new company founded on rich experience we work with our clients towards identification and realisation of renewable energy projects. We focus on creating an optimal balance between sustainable energy demands, environmental impact and social acceptance. Pondera Consult has extensive experience in the planning and development of small & large solar and wind projects both onshore and offshore. In total we have brought 2,000 megawatt of wind power through the consenting process, and a similar volume is in the pipeline. We provide Environmental Impact Assessments, spatial plans, permit applications, research and GIS services and other services that contribute to sustainable energy projects.
In this interactive workshop participants will work together on renewable energy projects in the Netherlands. National and local governments have set up ambitious targets for renewable energy, like wind and solar energy. The energy transition involves significant changes in our landscape and environment, and therefore, spatial and societal impacts should be taking into account in renewable energy projects. During the workshop participants perform a feasibility study for renewable energy in a specific region of the Netherlands. The goal is to assess the potential of wind and solar energy in the region and take into account the different interests and spatial barriers. Participants will experience all factors of wind energy projects. What procedures to follow? What to take into account? What barriers to overcome? And how to engage with the local communities?
Note: this workshop will be in Dutch
