The Nordic-Dutch Energy Solutions for Green Growth event, jointly organised by the Nordic embassies in the Netherlands and the New Energy Coalition, brings together business, research and government active in the field of energy with a key focus on bioenergy and hydrogen. It provides a unique possibility to share and create new business opportunities and to establish new collaborations with international partners in the energy transition. 

Keynote speakers from the European Commission and The International Energy Agency will provide their perspectives on European energy innovation- and market developments.

Panel debates will focus on how cities and clusters can benefit from green growth and how Nordic and Dutch companies are making progress in greening the industry through sustainable energy solutions.

During the round table sessions interactive discussions will be held on issues dealing with biomass as a renewable energy source in the green gas value chain; the role of hydrogen in greening industries; and the need for transnational collaboration on energy around the North Sea.

The main event will take place on the 26th of March at the Energy Transition Centre in Groningen. A site-visit is scheduled the day after. 


  • Create international business opportunities between Nordic and Dutch companies primarlily in the energy field and green technologies
  • Knowledge transfer and experience between the Nordic countries and the Netherlands
  • Create stronger research and policy cooperation between the Nordic countries and the Netherlands
  • Promotion and branding by creating higher awareness and (media) visibility of Nordic (and Dutch) innovations and solutions
  • Create stronger ties on a people-to-people level

A key part of the programme is the B2B matchmaking in which you can take part in pre-arranged one-on-one meetings with potential collaboration partners. 

There is no registration fee for the event.

There is a key focus on possible cooperations between the Nordic countries and the Netherlands, however this does not limit participation from outside those regions.
