The Regionale Energie Strategir Fryslan (RES) has completed a week long survey around greening
Translated by Thomas Ansell
As reported by the Omrop Fryslân, residents of the Province of Friesland seem happy with the idea of energy transition in their Province. The news has come about thanks to a survey created by the RES, an organisation responsible for helping Friesland come up with an energy transition plan.
The online survey was held to find out peoples opinions on, for example, clean energy, and was answered by around 2,000 people from across the Province.
It seems that most respondents are willing to be involved themselves in any plans around energy transition. Half of the respondents said that they are concerned about climate change and global heating. You can still fill in the survey on the RES’ website until March 3.
Once all of the answers have been collected, they will be used to inform policymaking and strategy around energy in the future. An upcoming plan will name, for instance, how much electricity Friesland will derive from sun and wind-energy in the future.
Friesland is one of the 30 so-called ‘energy regions’ in The Netherlands. The RES is a coming together of the 18 gemeentes, the Wetterskip Fryslân, and network operator Liander- who are all committed to finding ways to provide gas-free energy in the province in the future.
