On Thursday, November 9 the regional climate conference ‘Klimaattop Noord NL’ will be held at the Energy Academy Building in Groningen. During last year’s national climate conference in Rotterdam participants agreed on multiple actions to meet the ‘Paris goals’. Now the provinces of Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe bring their version of the conference to the region to progress actions even further. This conference aims to bring businesses, local governments, social and scientific/research parties together for further and combined actions to speed up the energy transition. On the day new initiatives will materialize and existing projects are to be accelerated and/or extended.

Participants will present their projects and plans, demonstrating how their initiatives contribute to the climate goals for energy neutrality in the year 2050  by means of an interactive workshop, an inspiring lecture, demonstration of innovative products, test setup of technical applications… The final list of selected participants will be announced end of September.

The Klimaattop Noord NL 2017 will take place at the Energy Academy Europe Building on Zernike Campus Groningen – the awarded and most sustainable educational building in the country. This building was designed to perform as a hub for energy transition, a meeting point for business, education, research and innovation. The on-campus facility for applied research and development EnTranCe will be an additional venue for the conference.

The Klimaattop Noord NL 2017 is organised by the provinces of Friesland, Groningen and Drenthe and New Energy Coalition (the newly founded  joint organisation of Energy Valley, Energy Delta Institute and Energy Academy Europe-organisation)
