Like us, you want affordable energy, now and in the future. Not only are fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas polluting, they are slowly becoming depleted and the more this happens, the more expensive they become. For a long time, we believed that nuclear power was the solution, but processing and storing radioactive waste is a major problem. This is why we are investing in alternative energy sources now rather than later.
Eneco has no coal-fired power stations and we say ‘no’ to coal energy. We would rather invest in energy savings, wind and solar projects, or energy from biomass. Wind and sun will never run out and are ‘free’. In the Netherlands, however, we still do not have enough capacity to provide everyone with clean energy. Until such time we will use efficient and relatively clean gas-fired power stations to be able to guarantee energy supply to our customers.
