November 6 - 8, 2019 EGATEC

Welcome

We kindly invite you to join the European Gas Technology Conference 2019 (EGATEC 2019) in the city of Groningen, The Netherlands.

EGATEC 2019 intends to present and discuss technology-focused options covering the role of gas in the future European energy mix. This topic is high-profile in The Netherlands, where Slochteren gas will be phased out within 10 years. The venue is on top of the Slochteren Gasfield and close to innovative developments in the Dutch Gas Sector.

Main theme is decarbonising the natural gas system.

Subjects for the conference include:

  • What’s happening in the Netherlands : Natural gas in Groningen 

  • The utilization of natural and renewable gases/ hybrid solutions

  • The role of gasses in mobility

  • The impact of injecting renewable gases in the natural gas system

Also a tour in the region along a number of interesting, innovative projects from the Dutch energy sector is foreseen.

As a lively university city, Groningen has the youngest average population in the Netherlands. It has a long and turbulent history, which becomes evident from the historic warehouses, courts and buildings. Groningen is also a city with nerve, with the most numerous examples of innovative architecture within its boundaries. In addition, it was once proclaimed the city with the best city centre in the Netherlands because of its charm. Experience all of this and explore Groningen!

The Wadden Sea is a natural area between Den Helder in the Netherlands and Esbjerg in Denmark.  The northern part of the Province of Groningen is directly connected to the Wadden Sea. It is such a unique natural environment that the entire Wadden Sea was desclared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009.

Groningen - The Place To Be

Groningen is also the choice of location for the Global Centre on Adaptation. In October 2018 this centre has been opened by former secretary general of the United Nations Mr. Ban Ki-Moon. The Climate Centre supports the new Global Commission on Adaptation which will raise visibility of the need to adapt to climate change and focus on identifying solutions.

It is the vision of the European Commission energy transitation in the Groningen region is an example for other cities in Europe. Therefore the EC recognizes the Groningen region as a frontrunner in energy transition.
