    Energy Alliance

    The municipality is organising the Energy Safari to mark the official start of The Hague Energy Alliance on 2 February. The alliance (agreement) is a partnership between energy producers, grid operator, housing corporations, residents associations and the municipality. The aim of the partners is to make all of the city’s buildings climate neutral as fast as possible. One of the most important criteria is to come up with a joint neighbourhood approach to make the power supply as sustainable as possible.

    Many people already active

    Luckily many people in The Hague are already taking action. For example, they are insulating their house, buying green power or installing solar panels on the roof of their house or office. These kinds of initiatives are good. But to provide the entire city with renewable energy, things need to move more quickly. This is why the municipality formed The Hague Energy Alliance with partners. The energy producers, grid operators, housing corporations and residents associations are working together to make The Hague climate neutral more quickly.

    Would you like to participate?

    Every organisation, neighbourhood initiative or start-up which would like to contribute to a climate neutral The Hague can participate. Send an email to energietransitie@denhaag.nl if you would like to get information about the Energy Alliance.
