EIT InnoEnergy Benelux @ Energy Now Congress at TU/e
EIT InnoEnergy Benelux is proud to announce that they are official partners of Energy Now!
After a very successful first edition of the congress in June 2016, Energy Now will be back with a brand new edition on the 30th of May. Energy Now addresses the current energy transition in a positive and accessible way. We strive to inspire, interest and trigger the audience in order to strengthen the connections between researchers, industry and students. The partnership of EIT InnoEnergy Benelux and Energy Now is the perfect example of two organisations working together to achieve a singular goal. A perfect fit!
In December 2015 the world united to fight climate change in The Paris Agreement. 195 Countries agreed to the world’s first universal action plan to tackle climate change by limiting global warming to ‘well below 2°C’. This historical achievement was just the beginning – now every country must turn their promises into action.
The European Union set key targets for 2020, 2030 and a long-term goal. One of these targets concerns a cut in the greenhouse gas emissions. One of the well-known and important greenhouse gasses is CO2, the emission of CO2 is high and needs to be reduced rapidly. The problem is that for this reduction our economy, lifestyle and infrastructure need to change. How are we going to do this? What do we need to achieve this goal? And is it possible to maintain our current way of living if we want to do so? We will look for answers at the Energy Now congress 2017 ‘Innovating towards zero’. The day will be divided in theme lines with topics such as offshore wind, urban energy and micro grids.
This year EIT InnoEnergy Benelux will bring some of our start start-ups to engage with students and industry. In addition we will organise the workshops of the day.
