Climate scientists want more involvement in Dutch policy

News - 25 October 2023

Past cabinets have implemented few effective climate policies and this must change soon, write twelve prominent Dutch climate scientists in a letter.

The letter (in Dutch) to the cabinet states that the climate goals are achievable but will require ‘far-reaching interventions’. For example, the experts point to ‘a combination of energy conservation, electrification of energy demand, expansion of renewables in energy supply and investments in a stable energy system’.

Among the signatories is TU Delft professor of energy system analysis Kornelis Blok.
