Energy Mission

The ‘Energy Mission’ conference aims at bringing decision makers from industry, policy and knowledge institutes together and showcase real innovations and cases along 3 missions: built environment, industry and electrification. A successful congress is one where you can inspire, share and connect in an unstrained setting. It is about touching and feeling this change with your proper eyes, and discuss this with fellow change makers., Unfortunately we notice that COVID-19 still impacts thoroughly on these parts of our daily lives.

In order to guarantee the quality of our congress program and to offer full networking possibilities to all attendees, we decided to split up Energy Mission 2020. The program will be changed in an online program on 3 December 2020 and a shift of the full program to 21 and 22 October 2021.
