The Dutch Energy Transition

05/12/2010

Featuring presentations and discussion about how the Dutch are transitioning to a low carbon economy, this breakfast has provided policymakers with insight into approaches Canada might take to address its own pressing energy issues.

The speakers were:

  • Hugo Brouwer, head of the Dutch Energy Transition Program and
  • Gerrit Jan Koopman, Managing Director at the Royal Netherlands' Paper and Board Association.

They shared their experience and discussed a variety of issues including:
funding tactics;

  • regulatory barriers to innovation;
  • knowledge management and communications;
  • the role of government, the private sector and other actors in the transition process; and
    the successes and failures of their work.
