The world is set to change significantly by 2030, and the energy transition is one of the biggest challenges we are facing today. It demands a rapid fossil fuel phase-down and reduction in energy dependency while simultaneously ensuring grid stability, scaling up renewable energy solutions – such as hydrogen and offshore wind technologies – and fostering collaboration between governments, businesses, and communities. To effectively manage and accomplish this transformation – particularly as an engine for the energy transition in the Netherlands – we need the best ideas and brightest minds to work together in shaping a sustainable and energy-efficient future in the North.
Drivers of Change
We are excited to launch the first-ever Energy edition of the Green Business Challenge in collaboration with New Energy Academy – part of New Energy Coalition. Expect a synergising week buzzing with fresh ideas and mind-blowing insights as more than 25 international students tackle real-world challenges faced by various organisations in the Northern Netherlands. It’s sure to spark inspiration and ignite unexpected breakthroughs.
