Imagine a future where energy consumption and generation are perfectly balanced, a future where the appliances at home interact with the windmills on sea. Can we realise a future where the central energy storage solutions have become a thing of the past? This is what we will be discovering in the fourth edition of Energy Now; the potential role the power grid can play in the sustainable energy transition.
During the event, exciting topics as the internet of energy, smart grids, decentral power storage and local energy exchange will be covered. Additionally, we would like to introduce you to the opportunities regarding the transmission and transport of energy on not only a local, but also on a regional and international level.
This is the after-movie of Energy Now 2018. This years’ edition will also be held at the Evoluon in Eindhoven, so the video should give a good indication of the day itself!
“The global energy transition has reached a tipping point phase, that is characterized by chaos, turbulence and conflicts. A new, renewable energy system is emerging, whereas the old, fossil energy system is struggling if still largely in place. In this tipping point phase, small groups of people, in particular young people, can have a large impact on this vulnerable, volatile energy system, if they come up with smart and appropriate interventions. This is the hope I would like to convey to young people: if there is any time you can make a difference, it is now!”
“The use of sustainable and renewable energy is one of the major transitions we face globally. EnergyNow brings together bright students, developers and more seasoned entrepreneurs, providing an additional node to a community set to accelerate the energy transition.”
“We definitely need all creativity in society in the energy transition,. Hereby, being able to think ‘out-of-the-box’ is very crucial. That’s exactly what makes this congress such an important event. Be there and think along!”
