Get-togethers on renewable energy in Groningen

The Province of Groningen is organizing a series of get-togethers on renewable energy. In the past few weeks a number of meetings already took place, including three knowledge sessions during which several researchers of the Center of Expertise Energy of the Hanze University of Applied Sciences delivered a contribution as speakers on:

  • The technics of energy transition
  • Who provides energy to whom, city versus environs
  • Financing and revenue models

The presentations can be found on the website

Conversations with residents

In the period between March 21 and April 20, 10 resident-meetings are taking place across the province. Commissioners of the province engage in a dialogue with the residents of Groningen, discussing renewable energy. They will do with the assistance of the We Energy Game, which has been developed by the Hanze University Groningen (at EnTranCe). This serious game gives participants insight into the dilemmas and different interests surrounding sustainable energy. They can explore a variety of possible scenarios with the game, and make suggestions and bring forward ideas in the conversation with the province.

The resident-meetings start at 19.30. The participation is limited to 35 participants per evening. Registration for the meetings is possible via
