  • Offshore wind farms with a positive ecological impact: is it possible?


    Creating harmony between nature and wind energy resonates with Pondera's vision.

    Hydrogen rather final element than starting point in the energy transition


    Offshore wind farms are on the rise. In the next ten years, another 10 gigawatts of capacity will be built in the North Sea, relatively close to the coast. But what happens after 2030? Will we continue to build? Will we be able to use the renewable energy, or will. . .
