New Energy Coalition
I have always had a close connection with nature, growing up on a farm in Northern Netherlands. Though, my interest for the energy field and specifically sustainability grew during the time I spent abroad and during the last years of my studies. Currently, I focus on offshore sysem integration while making use of exisiting infrastructure there where possible to keep the societal costs of the energy transition affordable. The North Sea regio is a pivotal area for the energy transition in North-Western Europe and to graps this potential I lead a series of activities in the field of eduction and innovation.
New Energy Coalition is a network and knowledge coalition that is committed to a smart and successful transition to the sustainable energy system of the future. Our course and choices have been laid down together with the coalition partners. The emphasis is on encouraging and enhancing innovation and education in the field of energy transition. In particular, the innovation effort has been focused on the themes: North Sea as Energy Region, Hydrogen, Local Energy Systems, Industrial Transformation and Greening the Gas Chain.
