New Energy Coalition is a continuously growing network of knowledge institutions, businesses, government bodies and ngo’s working together to accelerate the energy transition for a sustainable future.
For a sustainable future, the energy transition is crucial. The task is large, complex and global. Collaboration is the key to success.
Our coalition – with some 150 partners – connects the knowledge, experience, innovation and willpower of companies, government bodies, NGOs and knowledge institutions. Together we take up the challenge. From training young people and energy professionals to energy research and concrete energy projects. We actively share our knowledge with others. So that everyone can benefit.
New Energy Coalition is rooted in the northern part of the Netherlands. This area has quite a history as the energy supplier region of the Netherlands. With a track record in energy transitions. As a result, a lot of energy knowledge is concentrated here and there is a strong energy infrastructure. From that knowledge position, the coalition works on energy innovations, research and education. The region as a living lab, with (inter)national scope. New solutions take shape here and are actually implemented. Preconditions are in place to accelerate the energy transition.
Together – on the road to a sustainable energy economy: with ever growing knowledge, innovations, students, professionals, investments, jobs and business activity.
Act local, think global
We focus on (inter)national cooperation with regions and countries around us. For example, we work closely with federal states in northern Germany and the North Sea countries, and we work in European subsidy projects to acquire and share knowledge. We apply the knowledge and experience we have gained and share it with our partners.
Research, innovation and human capital
Expertise in research, innovation and education have come together and combined in New Energy Coalition, as have the networks in the business community, government parties and knowledge institutes. In ‘Innovation’, our focus is on System Integration and Green Molecules. ‘Research’ looks at the legal and social consequences of innovations. The availability of well-trained personnel is a critical success factor for the energy transition. Under ‘Human Capital’, stakeholders are brought together to create, connect and share relevant knowledge and skills (inter)nationally.

Strategy Plan and Review
Energy Academy Europe Building
New Energy Coalition is based in the Energy Academy Europe building, one of the most sustainable buildings in the Netherlands. The Energy Academy Europe building is located on the Zernike Campus in Groningen, an inspiring environment where industry, education and academia come together to advance the energy transition. The unique design shows how a building can make optimal use of the natural elements earth, water, air and sunlight as a primary energy source. The building has a BREEAM rating of “Outstanding”, setting extremely high standards for sustainability and energy consumption.
