We see energy as a social, technological and economic issue that will only be solved by behavioural and cultural change, technological innovation and significant investment combined. Integrating these perspectives is our core competence. Our publications reflect our insights.

Prepaid laden bij Energieflex, gespreid betalen bij Forstrom

Ook kleinverbruikers kunnen kiezen om te betalen voor daadwerkelijk verbruik in plaats van per voorschotbedrag bij aanbieder Energieflex en Forstrom. Energieleverancier Forstrom biedt klanten de mogelijkheid om gespreid te betalen. "Maar we rekenen wel af per verbruikte kWh."

 

Voorschotten kleinverbruik elektriciteit €960 miljoen te hoog

Door het sterk vertraagd aanpassen van de voorschotten blijven besparingen door het uitfaseren van gloeilampen en de installatie van zonnepanelen hangen bij energieleveranciers en overheid.

Forstrom dumpt voorschotbedrag

Een maandelijks voorschotbedrag? Zó achterhaald. Het nieuwe energiebedrijf in oprichting Forstrom doet er niet meer aan. Bij dit bedrijf gaan klanten alleen achteraf betalen voor de energie die zij werkelijk hebben verbruikt.

Glossary

Demand response

managing customer consumption of electricity in response to supply conditions. In this way electricity supply and demand can be better balanced. Demand response is used to reduce peak demand and offer lower prices to consumers, for example by supplying electricity at times of overcapacity.

Energy transition

the transition from traditionally procuring energy form fossil fuels to a renewable energy production. The energy transition also consists of a shift in ownership of production units as a result. Renewable energy is produced in a more decentralised way, such as solar panels on roofs of houses. This on-going decentralisation of energy production also changes the profit model of the energy supplier.

Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS)

a PC that regulates the energy household, provides consumers with important information about energy use and also controls devices in terms of optimal energy usage. All this is to reduce energy consumption.

Electrification

process of powering by electricity and is usually associated with changing over from another power source. One of the most well-known examples is the electric vehicle replacing vehicles on fossil fuels. Another example is the switch from gas to electricity we see in Dutch houses in heating.

Smart grid

an electricity network that can intelligently integrate the actions of all users connected to it – generators, consumers and those that do both – in order to efficiently deliver sustainable, economic and secure electricity supplies.
