From 11-14 May the ENSYSTRA project hosted its first online Workshop, organised by University of Stavanger. The topic of this Workshop was ‘Future Sustainable Energy Systems: Technology and Innovation for Renewable and Low Carbon Energy’. The week was packed with interesting presentations but also workshops concerning fundraising and grant writing, career development, creativity and innovation. Guest speakers shared their insight on topics such as Hydropower and energy system modelling in government, the role of hydropower in the green transition, blue hydrogen, offshore wind and hydropower in sustainable utilization.
Next to that, the ESRs had time to update each other on the progress of their research and make a first draft for several policy briefs about the outcome of the ENSYSTRA project. All in all, we hope we can meet again in person soon, but for now we’re happy we were able to virtually meet.
