Final symposium of energy projects provides new impetus for the future of energy transition

A multidisciplinary group of energy students, all studying at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences took the opportunity to present the final outcomes of their energy-related projects to lecturers, stakeholders and fellow students. A total of 25 presentations were given in different rooms. The presentations were split in regards to their focus point: Sustainable Households, Sustainable Buildings, Sustainable Mobility and Innovative Energy Projects. The specific topics of the presentations ranging from ‘Energy from Evapotranspiration’, over ‘Smart mobility’ and an ‘Clean Energy Design Tool’ to the ‘Power 2 Flex’ project. For an overview of the projects check out the poster gallery.

The highlight of the afternoon was the official certificate ceremony. Henk Pijlman, Chairman of the Executive Board of the Hanze UAS honored the work of the students by handing out the personalized participant-certificates of the Energy Transition Community EnTranCe. He thanks the students for their enthusiasm and hard work for the topic of energy and stressed the importance of their input, knowledge and expertise for the future of energy transition.

The final symposium is a six-month event which provides energy students with the opportunity to present the final outcomes of their energy-related projects to lecturers, stakeholders and fellow students. This time around a total of 42 students, who follow different educational programs at the Hanze UAS, were presenting. The symposium is organized by the Energy Transition Community EnTranCe and, for the first time, took place in the new Energy Academy building.

The final symposium was preceded by an Energy Lecture by Marsha Wagner. Marsha Wagner is an expert on energy education, labor market policy and innovation infrastructures. Within Topsector Energie, she works as a program manager for the Human Capital Agenda and she’s an expert in the field of energy transition related to the current and future labor market. Energy lectures are a regular event organized by the Energy Academy Europe.

The whole afternoon can be regarded a huge success with new insights in the very diverse topic of energy transition, new ideas and input regarding the projects and new connections with external stakeholders. In the next semester, staring from February, new students will accept the challenge to be part of the Energy Transition Community EnTranCe and to become an energy change maker.

The Energy Transition Community EnTranCe is an environment in which students, stakeholders and lecturers from different educational and professional backgrounds work together to accelerate the energy transition. Each semester a number of students are participating in the Energy Transition Community with the goal to become transition experts. For more information about the Energy Transition Community visit:
