Yes, but the right policies and the right technologies will only be effective if we also change how we think and change our minds about what is socially acceptable.

That’s according to Professor Jan Rotmans, a socially engaged scientist, with more than 200 publications in the field of climate change and global change modelling, sustainable development, and transitions and system innovations.

In this video, you’ll hear from him and other experts – including Mads Nipper (CEO Ørsted), Daan Schalck (CEO North Sea Port), Nienke Hofman (CEO Impact Hydrogen) and Elestor’s CEO Guido Dalessi – about why and how we are creating an entirely new energy system with a new infrastructure.

This energy system will cover the entire value chain. From renewable power generation, such as solar and wind, via energy distribution such as an optimised electricity grid, and via storage using low cost flow batteries and other solutions, all the way to end-user applications that will decarbonise transport and industry.

No chain is stronger than its weakest link.
