Why is The Netherlands host country of European Utility Week?
Although The Netherlands will be dependent on fossil fuels like natural gas, oil and coal for some years to come, the country has already put into place the conditions needed to accelerate the energy transition. According to the European Commissions' European Innovation Scoreboard for 2016, The Netherlands is Europe's fourth most innovative country in Europe and is currently working to double their public investments in energy innovation within the next five years. Fresh ideas to a more sustainable future are needed and helping to achieve this are companies, governments, consumers and of course innovative startups and students, all thinking collaboratively to achieve cleaner energy while minimising the impact on our climate.
This is exactly what we want to foster and showcase at European Utility Week and The Netherlands are therefore the perfect Host Country for the event.
