National legislation is one of the barriers in the transition towards clean energy, says Annelies Huygen


“We are in a time of total disruption. We simply can’t know what energy supply will look like in twenty or thirty years from now.”

Annelies Huygen – Sr. researcher at TNO and professor ‘Ordening van de Energiemarkt’ at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) – was interviewed on Dutch Business News Radio about what she thinks is needed to realise the transition towards clean energy. One of the barriers, according to Huygen, is national legislation. She states that it is currently holding back, instead of stimulating, citizens and companies in becoming local enery producers.
