Energy Delta Institute (EDI) of Groningen, one of the world’s leading educational institutes in the energy sector, is organising a conference on Energy Transition & Leadership. The conference will take place in Amersfoort (NL) on 12 October 2010.

Energy Transition needs Leadership
The world of energy transition is much discussed. Industry, politics, science and individuals, everyone has his own ideas about it. Over the next years, the energy sector is facing a huge call for adaptability and changeability. Energy transition is a process of change. We all know that changes bring along uncertainties. As a (future) manager, you will have to navigate this change process –and you will have to do this on top of all effects that are emerging from market liberalisation and an aging workforce. True leadership is needed. The changes require a high-quality performance. The EDI Energy Transition meets Leadership conference on 12 October may provide you with crucial insights and tools.

Energy transition meets leadership
EDI believes in sharing ideas and knowledge. At the conference you will share them with reputable speakers from the industry, science and politics. EDI will bring together leading experts and authorities in many crucial aspects of energy transition. Among the speakers – and discussion partners – will be:
 Hermann Scheer, president of Eurosolar and chairman of the World Council for Renewable Energy;
 Maria van der Hoeven, Minister of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands (2007-2010)
 Gertjan Lankhorst, CEO of GasTerra
 Peter de Wit, CEO of Shell Netherlands
 Catrinus Jepma, professor of International Environmental Economics, University of Groningen

The key question to be discussed by the speakers as well as during the eye-to-eye meetings will be: What will the implications of the developments and uncertainties surrounding energy transition be for your organisation and for you personally as a manager... and what can you do to manage them well?

The conference will be a meeting of experts and peers. It will be a great opportunity to share knowledge, gain deeper insights; and ideal for networking.
