Royal opening at Wind Meets Gas symposium
King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands addressed the 5th Wind Meets Gas symposium in the city of Groningen. Around 400 energy specialists and policy makers came together from the 7th to 8th of October at the invitation of New Energy Coalition to work on the sustainable energy system of the future with green hydrogen.
ERIG President Prof. Gerald Linke spoke at the symposium about the climate protection potential of hydrogen and used the opportunity for an exchange with the King Willem-Alexander on the fringes of the event.
At Wind Meets Gas, energy experts and policy makers from industry, research and government meet annually to discuss developments in the energy transition in relation to hydrogen: from large-scale application and system integration to education and the labour market and everything in between. Green hydrogen is now globally recognised as an indispensable link in the sustainable energy system of the future. The North Sea Energy Issue and Connecting Hydrogen Valleys was the overarching theme of this year’s symposium.
