In February and March 2021, EnergyVille organised a series of expert debates, the Energy Encounters, on various energy topics, more specifically on onshore wind, PV, offshore wind and gas. It was a successful series that sparked engaging discussions. The summaries of this series of Energy Encounters can be found here.

We would like to continue this with a new series of debates, this time on some important topics that were not addressed in the previous sessions: the built environment and renovation, smart cities and districts, mobility, industrial decarbonisation and heat. During these debates, experts who play a key role in realising this turnaround will come together to discuss key issues.  We'll bring different stakeholders together, who will put all their challenges in the energy transition on the table. That way, we can explore constructive solutions together.
