Title: Dutch Innovation: Flattening the Climate Curve, Accelerating the Energy Transition

Content: Live Episode 

Date: 3 December 2020 (11h00 CET)

Overview: The Netherlands has a history of innovation and pushing the boundaries that stretch back centuries. In the 17th century, not only did it establish the first stock market, it made the first-ever telescope and the first moveable submarine prototype – all things we now take for granted but were game-changing at the time.

In the intervening centuries, that entrepreneurial spirit has been nurtured and encouraged and is now being applied to tackling one of the greatest challenges mankind faces, namely the climate crisis and accelerating the energy transition.

In this unique, interactive session, created in partnership with Techleap.nl, home-grown scale-ups will showcase their innovative and pioneering solutions, followed by a Q&A with a panel of expert representatives from the utility and high-energy C&I consumer sectors

The session will culminate in a panel discussion that will take a holistic look at the global landscape for innovation within the energy transition, why it needs to be supported and how we can accelerate innovation to commercialisation.
