We facilitate acceleration of the energy transition
As an international center of excellence Energy Academy Europe brings initiatives, partners and networks together to facilitate acceleration of the energy transition. We do so, under our three pillars: education, research and innovation.
Market, laws, policies, rules and regulations, society at large are part of the energy system. Our energy future depends on integrating the elements of this system. Through our projects we aim to move towards system integration with the ultimate goal of transitioning to a more sustainable energy system. Our cooperation with top quality educational and research institutions and our vast network within the energy industry ensure that all EAE programmes are relevant to the energy sector and at the cutting edge of energy technology. We aim to consolidate leadership of The Netherlands in energy expertise and to contribute to the transition towards a sustainable, reliable and commercially viable energy economy.

Count your blessings
The Academy’s strongest point is its focus on the transition from fossil energy to sustainable energy. We will need both. On an institutional scale, other institutions concentrate on one or the other. This is why EAE is a very good partner in the transition.Sibrand Poppema

Our new build is an icon.
Our new 100% sustainable building, located at Zernike Campus in Groningen and completed late 2016, is a pioneering system for future sustainable constructions. It is labelled the highest BREEAM score ‘*****Outstanding’ and in March 2017 won a prestigious international BREEAM Award. The building is an icon, a flagship project for the region, and the ‘place to be’ for energy experts, students and entrepreneurs.View all specsMore about Zernike Campus
We work on a local, national and international scale
