10:30 AM CET Walk-in and networking

by professional moderator Rogier Elshout

As nations bordering the North Sea pledge to fast-track pivotal energy endeavors at sea, the stage is set for an offshore transformation. Delve into the mosaic of future energy and envision a fully integrated system that capitalizes on the sea’s vast potential. Join the conversation on harmonizing demand and supply, and help shape the blueprint for energy at sea.

Co-Moderator: Jan Vos, chair of NedZero

Debate with:

  • Karin de Lathouder, COO Eneco

12:25 PM CET Lunch and networking

Floating wind technology represents a leap forward in renewable energy, tapping into the untapped winds across the deep seas. There is a huge potential for floating wind worldwide. This innovation is a powerful and sustainable answer to our growing energy needs.

Axelle Viré, professor Floating Wind Energy TU Delft

Are we fit for scaling-up wind? Unlocking the potential for renewable energy production with offshore wind we face challenges like: tendering and pricing, system integration, EU standardization vs national legislation and standards, biodiversity, innovation and growth opportunities.

Co-Moderator: Jan Vos, chair of NedZero


  • Marnix van Alphen, Energy Transition Manager Vattenfall
  • Michiel van Rij, Head of Offshore Development RWE Benelux
  • Jan van der Lee, Lead Energy System Outlook TenneT

14:40 PM CET Coffeebreak and networking

Let us explore the game-changing potential of hybrid solutions at sea, combining (empty) gasfields, renewables, and hydrogen for unparalleled energy production efficiency. How can we integrate these diverse energy sources and transform offshore operations, driving forward sustainability and innovation.

Pioneering the future of carbon neutrality: the Porthos Project leads the way in Offshore CO2 Storage. CCS is the most efficient pathway to significantly diminish CO2 emissions at a cost-effective rate, both in the near future and the long term. Policy frameworks are needed in facilitating the expansion and scalability of carbon capture and storage technologies. How we can we scale up with CCS?
