Thanks, I do, I will and am investing accordingly, but just not within such a setting. And lets be honest the solution on a houshold level is not that complicated. And please do define "relevant people" :) As long as we have a minister and energy loby that can get a away with this: "Kolencentrales krijgen 3,6 miljard euro voor bijstook biomassa" well, I much rather choose myself who I consider relevant.

Hi Gerald. If you have a great idea, team, or solution, and the right mindset, show it to relevant people in the energy field and convince them to go along with you. Then, endless possibilities may arise. That is the concept of a hackathon: the first step towards innovation.

You must be joking...wasn't the saying: pay peanuts get monkeys?. Seeing what you are asking you have quite a nerve offering a mere €7000,- instead of €7.000.000,- . Seeing the stakes....transition of The Netherlands to 100% sustainable energy...maybe even that is unreasonably timmid.
