The Netherlands, Part 2: The Dutch Renewable Energy Economy

After five years with scaled-back incentives and a dead market for wind and solar energy, the Dutch government is determined to get things moving again and reach the European 20-percent renewable energy targets. The question is: Will they do it?

In this podcast, we’re coming to you from the Dutch-German Border, where we’ll explore the differences between the two countries’ solar markets, speak to the Environment Minister about building the industry back up after a long slowdown, explore some interesting applications for waste-heat in the country’s heavy industrial sector and look at the potential for algae as a jet fuel.    

Also, make sure to listen to Part 1: Exploring the Dutch CO2 Economy.
