The transition to new and clean forms of energy also requires a transition in terms of thinking and acting and new smart solutions for processes and products. Examples include new business models, legislation and regulations, technical innovation and the role of citizens and organisations. New solutions and approaches are needed on a large scale. This not only requires new technology but also a change in mentality. At Hanze UAS, we develop and research solutions for the energy transition and a circular economy. We facilitate and promote sustainable innovation in collaboration with various partners.
