Energy Symposium

Tue, 8 May 2018
10:30 hour until 18:00 hour
Energy Academy – Zernike Campus (Nijenborgh 6), room 0029

Renewable energy sources (such as solar and wind) are highly intermittent. Alternative energy grids would require energy storage systems as reservoirs to allow a constant power delivery. This is one of the challenges that we face in the energy transition. More and more people are convinced that electrochemistry will play an important part, when looking for solutions; for example with new ways to store our energy.


The role of the electrochemistry in our energy transition should therefore not be overlooked. Together with G.T.B Bernoulli  (student association of chemical engineering) we want to invite you to our symposium on the 8th of May, where we will shed a light on the different aspects of electrochemistry and –technology. Five prominent figures in the chemistry  and chemical engineering sector will share their knowledge and experience on this subject.

It will be an inspiring event with a full day program, including a reception with coffee and tea, a lunch around noon and drinks and snacks afterwards. For your participation we ask a fee of 10 euros, to cover the expenses of the day.


10:30-11:00 Reception with coffee and tea
11:00-11:05 Opening chairman symposium committee
11:05-11:15 Introduction by prof. dr. P.P. Pescarmona – University of Groningen
11:15-12:05 Prof. Dr. Marc Koper – Internationally renowned electrochemist, University of Leiden
12:05-12:55 Robert Claasen – Executive Director of Chemelot Industrial Park
12:55-13:45 Lunch
13:45-14:35 Wim Raaijen – Ceo & Editor in chief of Industrielinqs, well known technique philosopher
14:35-15:25 Dr. Ruud Kortlever – Specialist in Large-Scale Energy Storage, TU Delft
15:25-16:00 Coffee break
16:00-16:50 Dr. Annelie Jongerius – Representative of Avantium, specialized in Renewable Chemistry
16:50-17:15 Closure and summary
17:15-18:00 Drinks and snacks

More information and registration

This event is a public event organized by New Energy Coalition.

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
