The Municipality of Zaanstad invites you for a one-day event focusing on the energy transition in ports and cities. On Wednesday the 22nd of April we discuss crucial topics for business, ports and municpalities: How can we speed up the energy transition? How can we improve the way business and administration cooperate? How can we bring focus in the innovation that is needed? Get inspired by the search in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area for a sustainable connection between ports and cities.
On Wednesday April 22nd, we bring together regional, national and international stakeholders, leaders from local corporations and institutions, administrators and international specialists in the field of energy transition and industrial ecology.
The goal of the conference is to bring you more than inspiration – we want to stimulate the exchange of ideas, plans and business opportunities between the participants.
