Mission & vision, method and personnel

You are now here:

There is more than enough renewable energy available and it’s waiting to be harvested. Our objective: to develop more renewable energy in the Netherlands and increase its acceptance. Energy transition means a changing landscape to which we must all become accustomed. This requires expert analysis, good communication and personal support for the local community and implementers during these changes. Together, we are working on a future that runs on renewable energy.

Our

Missie & visie

Our mission: furthering responsible growth of renewable energy and increasing its social acceptance. We support vision and policy development, conduct technical, spatial and financial feasibility studies, handle permit procedures, draw up environmental impact assessments and provide environmental management and participation.

Renewable energy requires people. The provision of renewable energy requires more than only reliable, affordable technology. As a society, we must learn to live and work with these new forms of energy. Bosch & van Rijn combine their affinity with clean technology with the human ability to listen and cooperate.

The

Team

Bosch & van Rijn is the leading consultancy for renewable energy in the Netherlands. In 2004, Geert Bosch and Ruud van Rijn joined forces to work with great dedication on the growth of renewable energy in the Netherlands. What began with policy advice for the integration of wind energy was expanded with spatial advice, analysis, permit procedures, communication and participation for renewable energy projects throughout the Netherlands.

Our growing team consists of 17 consultants, each with their own expertise, all dedicated to making your renewable energy endeavours a success.

Steven works on the technical aspects of wind energy such as noise, shadow flicker and
finance. He specialises in GIS analyses and has worked on several major policy studies for the
ministries of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure and the Environment.

Steven is responsible for WindStats.nl, the website concerning all the wind turbines and their
production throughout the Netherlands. To this end, he developed a method for calculating the
annual output of all existing wind turbines based on KNMI data.

Steven studied Physics and holds a Master’s in Energy Science from Utrecht University.
