Energy, Tech & Tunes
Energy knowledsge session in House of Connections during ESNS
Groningen and energy transition; two words often used in the same sentence. The city of Groningen is a leader in hydrogen and the region has been recognised by the European Commission as Europe’s first Hydrogen Valley. Last year, we from New Energy Coalition successfully found the connection with EuroSonic NoorderSlag (ESNS) and this year we are also having this connection.
On Thursday 18 January, in House of Connections at the University of Groningen, we organised an energy programme with different parts in Dutch or English. This knowledge session is a collaboration between the University of Groningen, ENTRANCE, the Municipality of Groningen, Mission H2 and New Energy Coalition.
