NRGlab stands for energy landscapes and beyond. The NRGlab is a laboratory on energy transition initiated by Sven Stremke
and Renée de Waal. The NRGlab is based in the Netherlands and linked to the Landscape Architecture Group of Wageningen
University. We can be contacted and work in English, German and Dutch. This text in Dutch.

As landscape architects, we focus on the future, that is giving shape and helping to realize sustainable landscape transformations.
We are well aware of the necessity to join forces with other disciplines if we want to make a difference. This website is our online
platform where we collect knowledge, share experiences and bring together people who work on the subject of sustainable
energy transition. The website should help forming coalitions for research, design and teaching projects on energy transition.
