Strategic advice and policy

The transition towards a sustainable energy system requires citizens, companies and public authorities to make different choices; choices that focus on changes in behaviour and technology. But what are the best choices and how do you ensure that these choices are actually made? And how do you ensure that there is support for these choices and that these ultimately also deliver benefits? ECN is pre-eminently suited to give advice on the subject. We help by making things clear and selecting the most cost-effective solutions. We also give tailored advice on which policy instruments and strategies should be implemented. 

ECN solutions

ECN recognises and understands the dilemmas that need to be overcome to realise a more sustainable energy system. We supply independent advice  to private parties, national government authorities and the European Union. We also help in determining the right choices in relation to costs, preferences and other conditions . 

Our consultants come from various backgrounds; we employ engineers, economists, social scientists and environmental experts. This enables us to integrate all relevant policy aspects in our advice, which is why we really are in a position to provide the best solution. 

We have identified and listed both national as well as global energy trends, helped develop strategies and analysed and proposed policy instruments. Our goal is to deliver sound advice to free the way for well-considered decisions on climate and energy issues.
