To boost the production of solar energy, they developed a method which fits perfectly in the new law ‘Omgevingswet’. This law invites Weusthuis en Partners to give the environment an essential role in spatial development, in many ways. They use this method in a project for the province of Friesland, called ‘Sinnetafels’. The power of this method is to create a constructive dialogue between the involving parties, in order to achieve the best integration of a solar field in the environment. In their workshop, they will invite you to experience this method. The workshop is held in Dutch.
