Energy Delta Convention 2012, Groningen

The Energy Delta Convention is an international platform for senior energy experts from various disciplines, sectors and countries. <<-->> [i]by the University of Groningen[/i]

Each year up to date topics in the field of energy transition are discussed by senior representatives from research & development, business and authorities. The convention is of growing size and importance, with up to 1000 visitors last year. The convention is hosted by the University of Groningen and co-hosted by Energy Valley Foundation.

The first edition of the convention was held in 2004. This year, 2012, the eighth edition will take place. The EDC platform will host three main conferences:

  • Back To The Future Of Gas, organized by Energy Delta Gas Research (EDGaR)
  • Changing Infrastructures
  • Energy, Food and Water

On top of these conferences, the EDC includes a number of high level plenary events: keynotes, forum, dinners, networking lunches. A high profile speaker will deliver the concluding plenary speech. Also there will be a number of side events, also with special interest for young energy professionals and students.

The Energy Delta Convention has stated the following goals:

  • To create an unique international, interdisciplinary platform on challenges in the field of future energy production, transport and supply.
  • To apply the triangle of business, science and government that is key for an effective process of energy transition.
  • To cover state of the art energy and sustainability research.
  • To demonstrate good examples of energy transition and technology.
  • To enhance the visibility of the city Groningen and the Northern Netherlands as a hot spot for energy research and technology.

Stockholm World Water Week (SWWW) 2019

Stockholm World Water Week 2019

In 2019, World Water Week will explore an inclusive approach. This week’s theme: “Water and society – including all” is recognizing that not everybody is impacted in the same way by too little, too much or too dirty water. Less obvious than last year, the Nexus approach will remain at the heart of the water debate, especially through the seminar topic "Addressing migration through regional integration and water security for all", that explicitly connects water, energy and food security as the...

SWWW 2019 Seminar // Addressing Migration through Regional Integration and Water Security for All

Regional economic integration can foster transboundary water management as well as energy and food security. It also attracts investments that address infrastructure deficits, accelerates participation in global and regional value chains, and stimulates economic growth. All are important entry points for sustainable development. However, environmental and social co-benefits are typically not as well quantified as economic growth.

Special Session at 38th IAHR World Congress // Sustainable Water Storage to Meet Water, Food, and Energy Development Goals

Storage to stabilize water availability is essential to sustain water, food and energy production, reduce hazards, and adapt to climate change. Regulation of water resources using dams and reservoirs played a major role in the socio-economic development of northern countries during the 20th century, but practices of the time often led to undesired environmental and social impacts. Thousands more dams and reservoirs are planned for construction in the next decades, mainly in Asia, Africa, and...
