The 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. We also organise lectures, masterclasses, excursions, symposia and debates that are open to everyone. Anyone who follows these ‘Energy Learning Activities’ and completes an energy course at Hanze University of Applied Sciences or the University of Groningen will be awarded the Energy Academy Certificate. These 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 and pupils to pursue a career in the energy sector, we are participating in the Follow Energy campaign and supporting Energy College – the secondary vocational cooperation in the northern Netherlands.
