Mr Jan Peters studied physics at the Technical University of Eindhoven. After his study he was a development pioneer during eight years in Rwanda, Africa establishing a micro hydro power station and a distribution grid. He started his career in the Netherlands in constructing fossil fired power stations, and changed over after this experience to sustainable energy production. He participated strongly in the settlement of the first wind farms and of different industrial combined heat and power plants.
