Erasmus Energy Forum 2017 | 28 June, Erasmus University Rotterdam Campus | 29 June, World Trade Center Rotterdam 

The Erasmus Energy Forum has featured a unique convergence of players in the energy transition since 2011; from presenting the latest in scientific studies of renewable opportunities for traditional players, to exploring key regulations for leaders in the advanced energy industry. Our 2017 Forum continues to enable new insights and connections, with essential debates about the energy industry today and into the next decades.

In this year’s Forum, the Erasmus Centre for Future Energy Business looks to the USA. What are the best practices – and lessons – from the USA that can accelerate the paths to zero carbon energy? Speakers from industry, in-depth workshops and expert panels of representatives from government, academia and business will lead and facilitate constructive debate, creating an inclusive setting in which to exchange ideas with your peers.
