NRGlab stands for energy landscapes and beyond. The NRGlab is a laboratory on energy landscapes 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 Energy Landscapes.
Yet, we are 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 Landscapes. Last but not least the NRGlab should help forming coalitions for future research, design
and teaching projects on energy landscapes. Please note that we are still in the process of getting approval of all the
people mentioned, and for the publications and illustrations included here!
