New Energy Coalition develops, organises and facilitates knowledge sharing through regular education at secondary vocational, higher vocational and university level in the Northern Netherlands. We also train professionals from around the world through the Energy Delta Institute, our own business school. Through our New Energy Academy Programme we host (free) lectures, masterclasses, excursions, symposia and debates that are open to everyone. Students following the ‘Energy Learning Activities’ of the Programme and complete an energy course at Hanze UAS or the University of Groningen will be awarded with the Energy Academy Certificate. Together the education projects will enable New Energy Coalition to build a suitable and up-to-date educational portfolio for a smart energy transition.

Sufficient professionals

We don’t just need brilliant energy people, we also need enough of them. In order to inspire students to pursue a career in the energy sector, we are participating in the Follow Energy campaign and supporting Energy College – a cooporation of the secondary vocational schools in the northern Netherlands.
