About EBN

Energie Beheer Nederland (EBN) is energising the transition. We are contributing to a reliable and affordable energy supply today and to a sustainable energy system for the future. We invest our knowledge, skills and financial resources to help build a sustainable energy system faster, together with our partners. We are working towards a reliable energy system in which we share the costs and benefits of the transition fairly: an energy system that works for everyone.

EBN was established 50 years ago to invest in oil and gas projects on behalf of the Dutch State. Today, our activities focus on three key areas: the gas transition, the heat transition, and carbon capture and storage (CCS) and transport systems. Like the world around us, we are changing too. But one thing will never change: we will continue to represent public interests in the energy supply, now and in the years to come.
