Born in the Netherlands, Martijn van Zande studied International Business and Man-agement in Eindhoven and Hong Kong and has 15 years of experience as Director within the international energy sector. Most recently he was CEO of Nature Energy for The Netherlands, a company producing bio-methane on industrial scale, recently acquired by Shell. Before that Martijn was a driving force behind the Heating & Cooling division of the largest energy company of The Netherlands, Eneco (Mitsubishi Corporation), with an impressive track record and great experience in both District Heating as well as modern heat pump-based Heating & Cooling grids and stand-alone solutions to existing- and new build Real Estate.

“We are very pleased to have gained with Martijn an experienced executive in the energy sector, who will use his comprehensive abilities to drive our expansion in the real estate and industrial sectors in The Netherlands, and soon also the other Bene-lux countries. The disruptive changes in the energy markets requires an acceleration of the energy transition with innovative and sustainable energy solutions made by GETEC. Martijn brings in all these skills to further making inroads into the Benelux markets with these solutions”, says Thomas Wagner, CEO of GETEC Group.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to take on this important and challenging task at GETEC. The solutions of GETEC are exactly what is needed to accelerate the energy transition in the Benelux. GETEC offers the Industrial companies of The Netherlands and Belgium its unique outsourcing proposition for energy utility as-sets, where GETEC as Energy Service Company will build or take over, maintain and operate these energy assets in order to allow its clients to invest into their core business. GETEC also offers Energy Efficiency services which help Industrial compa-nies to lower both their energy consumption and carbon footprint by utilizing new fuels such as biomass, residual heat, bio-methane, green steam and hydrogen”, states Martijn van der Zande, Platform CEO GETEC Netherlands.

GETEC will also enter the Dutch Real Estate markets as the first Energy Service Company (ESCo) which offers a Joint Venture model where the partner transparent-ly benefits from the CO2 and energy cost savings, as the company has been doing for years in Germany and Italy where GETEC supplies far over 1 million customers with sustainable heating & cooling. GETEC will work together with the most re-nowned advisors and EPC’s to build future proof energy solutions.
