Jaap Baarsma

President, Holland Solar

After a career in watermanagement and politics, I have chosen in 2003 to be active in renewable energy. I am senior adviser for a group of 40 mid-sized electrical engineering companies basically in the transition to renewables in their companies.


As President of Holland Solar I am very active in the Dutch policy in respect to renewable energy. There will come a new agreement between all stakeholders in the Netherlands for  the energy transition. The aim is to reduce ther CO2 emissions in 2030 with 49%. The  pitch of Holland Solar in this agreement is to have in 2030 of all necessary energy 15 % out of solar energy, mainly solar-PV, but also  with a contribution of solar themal energy.
