How earthquakes are changing the Dutch energy system
For more than 50 years, the Netherlands has been blessed by its enormous natural gas reserves. But recent events have shown the Dutch that cheap and abundant energy can also come at a price. Trade attaché at the Embassy of Denmark in the Netherlands, Heide Ehlert-Jürgensen, explains why the Dutch energy system is changing rapidly.
Renewables: How the Dutch can meet its impossible targets
The Netherlands is undertaking the enormous task of transforming its energy system. Historically, the Dutch have relied heavily on their gas reserves, but with natural deposits dwindling, the country is looking to renewable energy to meet its energy demands. And as Obton’s CEO, Anders Marcus, explains, solar energy will play a key role.
Obton, Ambassador, King's Commissioner and Mayor inaugurate 14 MWp solarpark in the Netherlands
Once completed, the solar park will consist of 117.000 modules supplying electricity to nearly 3.000 households. The inauguration ceremony on the construction site marks the culmination of a dedicated effort from Obton and the collaborators involved.
Obton enters the Dutch PV-market
After extended analysis of the market, we are proud to announce that Obton has invested in a solar park of 14 MWp in the northeastern parts of the Netherlands. It is the first time Obton enters the Dutch market for solar power, and with this investment Obton manages one of the largest solar projects in the Netherlands.
