Save the date! KIVI Symposium

Moving Away From Fossil Fuels The Royal Netherlands Society of Engineers (KIVI) is organizing a symposium on the opportunities and threats of the energy transition for our industry at The Hague University of Applied Sciences on May 1st, 2018. In a world with growing energy demand and with a transition away from fossil fuels towards more sustainable energy sources coming our way, we, the Dutch offshore, oil & gas industry face the challenge to remain leading during and after this energy transition. What does the sector need to do today? What opportunities does the energy transition offer? The goal of the symposium is to actively contribute to the debate around the energy transition, specifically in the Dutch context. Speakers from governmental bodies, NGOs, Oil & Gas companies, suppliers and academia are invited to share their views in presentations, followed by interactive panel discussions and audience questions. We hope to see you on the 1st of May in The Hague for this interesting symposium! You can register via www.kivi.nl/mafff....
