As the place where the energy transition will take shape, the North Sea is attracting much attention from the whole world. North Sea Energy ambassadors, such as René Peters and Joris Koornneef are regularly invited for interviews, dialogues, or present more in-depth information to interested audiences. Below are a few of these we don't want to keep from you.
