Energy keeps the world moving and is an integral part of our existence. Our long time and major dependency on fossil resources for energy are questioned in these times due to the faster decline of these resources, associated climate issues and increasing capacity of the renewable resources, among others. This makes the fossil-based resources loosing their position as a sustainable asset for energy on a long run.

There are various approaches such as switching to renewable and low carbon energy resources, improving the energy efficiency of current production processes and other energy consuming sectors, and mitigating the carbon emissions in the conversion and usage of energy to address this scenario.

In the Netherlands, the government announced their plan to gradually shut down various fossil-based facilities including coal-fired power plants and the Groningen natural gas field in near future. This poses challenges for a timely transition to a different picture of energy exploration, conversion and usage to meet the growing energy demands in the Netherlands.

Being the largest energy converter cum consumer, the process industries have a major role in addressing these challenges by improvising their state of the art technologies and by adopting the technology breakthrough in the renewable energy sector. New technological innovations are arriving faster than ever before and are supporting or competing with one another to win this race of providing safer, reliable and affordable energy.
