Gasunie

"The energy transition will have profound effects on our energy system. We can be sure however, that the demand for energy will remain high for at least a number of decades to come. We see new energy carriers and CO2 value chains emerging and existing technologies expand or alter, connect and integrate even. During EGATEC, we are excited to bring together all kinds of experts on the specific topics within this landscape. It will be a great opportunity to expand our professional network and join forces to bring technology even further!"
