Large, institutional companies like TenneT, Alliander and Eneco are researching and preparing for a new future. What will it entail? An interesting topic to chew on for students from a broad range of study fields.

Though the energy transition will affect every energy-related company and in some way, no sector will be influenced more than the power supply sector itself. The main source of power due to be changing, the rest of the power supply chain will have to change with it. On top of that there are also the effects of climate change, energy security and the ever increasing energy demand. All these are issues the power sector will have to contend with as we move towards completely renewable energy sources.

    *This masterclass is designed by Energy Academy Europe for students of RUG and Hanze who have an interest in energy and the energy transition. Dialogue and the exchange of ideas are at the heart of a Masterclass. Therefore, a maximum of 25 students can attend. Since there are limited places available, we will confirm your qualification in the third week of May. Prior to the masterclass, the participants will be divided into multidisciplinary teams. Your task will be to solve and present a case study on the day itself.

It is defined as an Energy Learning Activity for students of the Hanze UAS and the University of Groningen. Students are invited to attend as many Energy Learning Activities as they want, at all stages of their education.
Energy Learning Activities are part of the Energy Academy Europe Certificate. If students follow 10 Energy Learning Activities and also complete 30 ECTS in energy courses at Hanze UAS or the University of Groningen, they are eligible for obtaining the EAE Certificate.
