For this year’s final AMS Science for the City in Pakhuis de Zwijger, we’ll dive into the complex dynamics of the energy transition. For Energy & Spatial Change we’ve invited active stakeholders in Amsterdam to talk about how the energy transition changes our cities and landscapes. What are the societal, spatial and technological questions the transition to sustainable energy raises for the city of Amsterdam, the metropolitan region and the country as a whole? What is the impact of the changeover on the living environment, urban areas and rural landscapes? How much space does the transition require, and are we able to accommodate this in densely populated cities like Amsterdam?
