How can we work with residents, municipalities and developers to create solar farms that are welcoming? So that we can meet the climate goals in 2030. In which residents have a say in the realization and management? Participation can be done in many ways and is different for each park. In this webinar, Novar talks with the Eekerpolder energy cooperative. How exactly does it work: participation in a solar farm?
