JTF: EUR 2 Million funding received for electrical systems

The main objective of the JTF is to enable regions that are highly dependent on income and employment from fossil fuels to enter an energy transition on a fair and equal basis. A transition that takes into account the social and economic aspects and the environmental effects. The JTF Groot-Rijnmond (administered by Kansen voor West) grants EUR 2 million to the electrical systems of the FPS RIJN that will operate between Rotterdam and Duisburg
