Energy Research Cases

Solutions for Climate Questions and the Energy Transition

Case

Geothermal Energy case

Geo energy – Optimization of the extraction of fossil fuels and searching for new, sustainable energy sources in the earth.
In this case we explore the possible
solutions to harvest this energy.

Case

Wind Energy case

What does a wind farm development mean for the surrounding community? The businesses in nearby towns, the contractors who work on the wind farm, and the farmers who own the land?

Case

Shale Gas case

In this case we asses the possible impact of shale gas extraction on commercial property values in the Netherlands, using data from the province of Groningen as a study to get a clear overview.
