EHV INNOVATION CAFÉ #18 at the Kazerne
May 9, 2019 @ 17:30 - 19:30
In which way will high-level legal documents such as the EU Clean Energy Package for all Europeans and the Dutch Climate Agreement (Klimaatakkoord) influence our everyday lives in the near future?
In this ‘Energy Policy Made Simple’ event, the aim is to present part of EU and Dutch energy policies and bring them closer to our guests, with a special focus of policies relevant for the citizens of Eindhoven. Through the showcase of municipal and commercial living labs and projects, it will be demonstrated how they represent a pathway and test bed for the energy transition roadmap. If you are interested in understanding these legislative acts and the implications of their implementation, you’re very welcome to join us, regardless of previous knowledge.
In three engaging sessions starting at 17:45, 18:15 and 19:00 h, the following speakers will share their insights:
Miriam Frosi, City Council Member at Eindhoven Municipality, will speak about the sustainability challenge for Eindhoven. From the EU Paris Agreement on climate changeto the Netherlands and the translation for the city of Eindhoven; what does this international agreement mean for our city and the local climate plan? And which pilots are being introduced in the city to reach its goals?
Since 2007 Alfredo Verboom has been advising the city of Eindhoven on sustainable energy policy. As the author of the cities ‘Climate plan 2016 – 2020’, which describes the actions and measures to reduce the level of our CO2-emissions in 2020 with 115.000 ton/yr, he will speak on our route towards climate-neutrality.
As Senior Advisor Public Affairs & Stakeholder Management at Essent, Bram Borgman is interested in ways that help people everywhere contribute to the energy transition.
