Trinomics works for TNO on a series of policy briefing papers on Dutch energy policy. In this series, a new paper has been published: ‘The Fossil Dilemma of Rotterdam’ (in Dutch). The paper discusses the greening strategy of Rotterdam harbor, the largest fossil fuel hub of Northwestern Europe. Its present strategy is directed at developing fossil and greening options at the same time. However, it might be that this strategy creates a lock-in into fossil fuels for the decades to come. Will this strategy therefore be successful or is a more ambitious greening strategy necessary in order to prevent that Rotterdam turns into the Detroit of Europe?
Authors of the paper from Trinomics are Onne Hoogland, Hans Bolscher and Stephan Slingerland.
