Opportunities for the Netherlands in the energy transition
Batteries are a key technology for the energy transition. They are an important means of making the mobility sector more sustainable and can stabilise the electricity grid. Europe is investing massively in battery production with over 6 billion in 'Important Projects of Common European Interest'.
There are also opportunities for the Netherlands. Already, 250 parties are active as developers and users of new batteries. These parties have a potential earning capacity of over €2,5 billion in 2030. The new Battery Systems Action Agenda shows where these opportunities lie: new material innovations, electric heavy transport and recycling. That is why the Battery Systems Action Programme was drawn up by an expert group from the business community and knowledge institutes. Holland High Tech contributed to this. The Action Programme is supported by the central government and the Top Sectors.
