Looking back on 2019
and best wishes for 2020
This year BLIX exists 10 years. We celebrated this with a failure festival in June, where making mistakes was key. With the help of failure fitness we were reminded by fail master Remko van der Drift that an error is a fact and that a fact offers an opportunity. Thus we learned to avoid being angry with the error maker or with ourselves.
In 2020 we want to grow further with you, because we experience that the energy transition is accelerating. The phase of debating is over and action is needed. Fortunately, the EU is awake and a European Climate Act is ready. In Asia we are seeing an accelerated energy transition. BLIX is involved and will continue to grow in Asia.
We thank all our customers and partners for the accelerated energy transition in 2019. We wish all of you a healthy and happy 2020.
What does BLIX do to accelerate the energy transition?
In 10 years, BLIX has:
- Helped to develop and realize more than 30 GW of wind energy; of which 18 GW offshore and 1.2 GW onshore;
- Helped to develop and realize more than 80 MWp solar energy;
- Done projects in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Romania, Taiwan and the USA
- Operated CO2 neutral since 2017. We have set off 111 tonnes of CO2 emission (238,000 km of work traffic, 84 flights and our energy consumption in the office) by investing in improved the wood cooking stoves in India. As a result, 2/3 less wood is used and the emission of smoke and CO2 is avoided.
