Step into the future

Hybrid event about Mobility & Energy

Thursday 24 June 2021 EnTranCe: Centre of Expertise Energy in Groningen was dedicated to the future of sustainable mobility and energy. At this venue EnTranCe, New Energy Coalition, Hive.mobility and Hanzehogeschool Groningen organized thefirst edition of the New Energy Forum. For PINO literally and substantively familiar territory because in 2017 the Climate Summit North NL also took place here. The novelty for PINO was the hybrid format of the New Energy Forum which included both live audience and online participants. This definitely tastes like more!

Transition tracks: Mobility and Energy

During New Energy Forum scientists, students, businesses, governments and social institutions meet to share their knowledge. Knowledge of present and future mobility and energy transition in the Netherlands. Both themes were elaborated in two transition tracks that could be followed both live and online. An inspiring Energy keynote by meteorologist Reinier van den Berg was alternated with a Mobility keynote by Tim Houter, CEO of Hardt Hyperloop.

There were also demos that could be visited live and were also accessible to the online viewer via the reporter. Such as a hydrogen-powered racing boat and LED technology that influences the growth process of plants. Pitches from students about their rresearch in the energy sector in an accessible format of StudentTalks. All live from the Energy Barn with Diederik Jekel and from the BuildinG hosted by Jeroen van den Berg. Together with EnTranCe we are already looking forward to a new edition on 23 June 2022.
