“Embracing the energy transition – The Dutch approach”
Wednesday 18 August @ 09.00 CDST / 16.00 CET
The Netherlands is taking part in a global effort to develop a low CO2 energy economy that is safe, reliable and affordable.
We are reducing our dependence on fossil fuels as we transition towards a sustainable, reliable and affordable energy system. We are taking the lead in the development of alternative energy sources and technologies. Standing out by resourcefulness, applied science and ‘can do’ mentality in strong collaborations of government, business and knowledge institutes, we are keen to share projects and innovations that showcase our strong capability in connecting sectors, humanity and technology with a sustainable mind-set.
This session highlights the roadmap The Netherlands has set out to a future-proof sustainable offshore energy supply system.
