During this Vision Dinner, Ina Barge, Head of Renewable Energy Development at Eneco, will delve deeper into the various challenges she encounters in sustainable generation development. How do you deal with scarcity, inflation, and supply chain difficulties? How do you adjust your asset development accordingly? How can you establish sustainable collaborations to make customers and the entire supply chain more sustainable? And most importantly, how can we ensure that everyone is willing to invest in this? During this Vision Dinner, we will collectively brainstorm solutions and innovative strategies to achieve our climate ambition. You are most welcome to participate!
Ina Barge, Eneco
Head of Renewable Energy Development
Before joining Eneco in 2016, Ina Barge worked at Fokker (aircraft manufacturing) and Gwynt (consultancy in operational excellence). Her interest lies in the intersection of human needs (societal demands) and technological solutions. At Eneco, she has held various roles within the operation of on- and offshore wind farms, and she currently serves as the Head of Renewable Energy Development. In this role, she focuses on accelerating the energy transition by developing more sustainable sources such as wind and solar energy. Her goal is to harness the integrated power of Eneco to produce more sustainable energy and reduce the ecological footprint while integrating new energy proposals for and with Eneco's customers.
Many organizations are facing significant challenges when it comes to achieving climate goals. Eneco is no exception, as they have set the ambitious goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2035. They have already taken significant steps, but there are still challenges to overcome. The complexity of regulations and the lengthy timelines for sustainable energy projects can be difficult to navigate. Additionally, there are objections and comments from various stakeholders that need to be addressed with solutions. Demonstrating entrepreneurship in this area has proven successful for Eneco, but how do you achieve engagement from all parties?
