New Energy Coalition is making the energy transition smarter.  We shape the transition by means of various projects for knowledge development, business development and education. As initiator, coordinator or implementer, we are involved in a wide range of regional, national and international projects and programmes. In these projects and programmes, we develop courses, fundamental knowledge or concrete innovations and their integration into the energy system. Thanks to our energy knowledge, our position as the hub of the international energy network and our organisational strength, we are able to build strong collaborations and launch successful projects. Within our projects we approach the energy transition as a system transformation and from different disciplines. As such our projects contribute, directly or indirectly, to the development of workable solutions for a sustainable energy system.
