On Thursday 13 September, New Energy Coalition and World Energy Council Netherlands (WEC NL*) will jointly organise a mini-seminar discussing the role of sea ports in the energy transition. Ms. Jacoba Bolderheij, Ceo of Port of Den Helder, and Mr. Cas König, CEO of Groningen Seaports, will be keynote speakers. Prof. dr. Catrinus Jepma (New Energy Coalition/University of Groningen), honorary professor in Energy and Sustainability will moderate.

Bolderheij and König will discuss themes such as:

  • role and opportunities for sea ports in the energy transition
  • main challenges and issues and how can they be addressed
  • developments in Europe and worldwide
