The Province of Gelderland has initiated the Sustainble Transportcorridor Betuwe project (in Dutch DTB) to investigate the potentials for energy savings and renewable energy provision in the Betuwe region.
The DTB project addresses a unique challenge by combining energy transition and sustainable transport. Many stakeholders in the area are looking for solutions to save energy and generate renewable energy. The dense infrastructure in the region, transected by several highways, train lines, rivers and canals, offers particular chances. DTB aims for an encompassing strategy supported by local stakeholders, supporting their sustainable ambitions.
