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 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 we launch successful 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.
