A one-day event to engage, inspire and connect women who are contributing to the energy transition. A partnership between ECWO and 75inQ.

Join the one-day event Women in the Energy Transition to meet and be inspired by women leading the energy transition, to deepen your understanding of how the energy transition is changing the nature of cross-industry collaboration, and to lay the foundation for creating more influence for yourself and other women to create a faster, more proactive transition. We welcome all but encourage participation of women with at least five years of experience who are working in:

  • Both fossil- and renewable-based energy generators and distributors, including utilities and policymakers
  • Recent entrants into the energy transition landscape that are creating a sustainable, renewable-energy-based future by offering real and virtual storage development
  • Industries increasingly affiliated with demand response and flexibility, for example: energy-intensive industry, the automotive and mobility industries, logistics and transport, telecommunication, real estate and building management, automation and control services, electrical manufacturing and infrastructure and information systems management.

The keynote will be delivered by Dorine Bosman, Chief Investment Officer of the Port of Amsterdam. She will address the value of women’s leadership in the energy transition and on developing the resilience that enables bold decisions and the ability to navigate change.

Programme updates, including speakers, will be posted here as they become available. Other confirmed speakers and contributors include:

  • Marjolein Bot, Lead Energie at Amsterdam Economic Board
  • Prasanna Colluru, Director of Corporate Stragegy at Future Proof Shipping
