TransFuture Festival: new energy for the region

On Wednesday 12 June, the EnTranCe energy testing ground at Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen will be home for the fifth year running to the TransFuture Festival, which is all about new forms of energy. The diverse programme includes lectures and workshops as well as an innovation market where businesses, government bodies and knowledge institutes demonstrate their activities to address the issue of new energy. The festival will also see the Top Dutch Solar Racing Team solar car on their way to Australia.

In the decades ahead, our energy supply will undergo drastic changes. This topic has long been high on the agenda in the northern Netherlands, which is leading the energy transition for a good reason. The TransFuture Festival will unite the region in exhibiting the latest innovations and developments in the field of sustainable energy.

Groningen gas-free
Throughout the festival, experts from various organisations will exchange ideas with the public on how to help businesses and private residences transition away from natural gas. Which districts will go first? Who will pay the bill? And how can we tackle this physical and societal challenge together? The municipality of Groningen aims to be CO2-neutral by 2035.

Top Dutch Solar Racing Team sets off for Australia
The Top Dutch Solar Racing Team was founded by a group of enthusiastic Hanze UAS students. They spent the past few months at EnTranCe working on a remarkable solar car with which they will compete in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, a 3,000-km race across Australia, in October. What distinguishes the Hanze UAS team from other teams is that it is comprised of upper secondary vocational education, higher professional education and university students. At the TransFuture Festival, the solar car will be unveiled to the public and the team will make a first public drive on their way to Australia.

The most sustainable road in the Netherlands
At the festival, the BuildinG innovation centre will kick off its ambitious ‘Route N33 Midden’ project. The construction of a dual carriageway along the N33 trunk road between Zuidbroek and Appingedam is of the essence in improving access to the Eemsdelta region. What knowledge is already available, and how can we develop new initiatives in the fields of infrastructure and energy? How can we involve the region in the N33 construction work? In cooperation with the province of Groningen, the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat), and a number of local authorities, BuildinG is inviting everyone to join in the discussion on 12 June.
