MEET THE SPEAKERS THAT WILL BE PRESENT ON THE ALL ENERGY DAY 2022!
KEYNOTE - JAMES CAMERON
James is the founder of Climate Change Capital which is an advisory group that supports efforts for solutions to climate change and the energy transition. Next to that, he is committed to numerous other initiatives like the Overseas Development Institute where is chairman. He is also an advisor for the Climate Bonds Initiative and he serves as a member of the Green Investment Bank Commission.
However, this is only a fraction of everything James has been involved in. James' work is centred around tackling the problems that arise in the energy transition. He would like to use this experience to narrow the space between law, policy, finance and technology and thus have an impact on humanity. With this vision, James is ideally suited as a keynote speaker at the All Energy Day!
HOST - EMIL VAN OERS
Emil is a Dutch editor, presenter and reporter. After his master's degree in journalism, Emil did an internship at NOS and quickly became an editor at NOS news op 3. Meanwhile, he is a well-known reporter and presenter at NOS op 3.
However, we invited Emil because of his interest and passion in sustainability. With his expertise and great enthusiasm he will be the perfect host for the 10th edition of the All Energy Day!
Problems within the Energy Transition aren't black and white, all angles have to be considered to see the complete picture. Therefore we invited four professionals from various fields (Science, Business, Politics and Climate Action) to participate in a debate!
Donald Pols is a climate optimist and he is currently director of Milieudefensie. Donald is the face of the climate case against Shell, which he won. Donald thinks equality is very important within the climate crisis. If major polluters do not participate, there will be no solution. In short, a promising debater who will defend his arguments from the perspective of climate action!
Chantal Zeegers is leader of the parliamentary party of D66 Rotterdam. She has for example expertise in sustainability and the energy transition and she will be committed to making the port of Rotterdam more sustainable. Chantal is ideally suited to debate from a political point of view.
Behnam Taebi is currently a professor in energy and climate ethics at the Delft University of Technology. However he is better known for his research about the interface of Ethics and Nuclear Energy. This is a very interesting subject which could come up during the debate as well! Behnam will be able to defend the science and ethics side of the story of climate change and energy transition!
Today, Marjolein works as lead energy at the Amsterdam Economic Board. Before that she worked at Shell. Her current goal is to accelerate the energy transition by establishing and growing initiatives and innovations around sustainable energy. In what way can the business world respond to the energy transition, and in what way does it work against it?
Entrepreneurship is an important pillar in the way towards sustainable energy and a sustainable planet. The pitch competition is a chance to give a boost to an innovative and promising start-up while also encouraging other participants to start a green business one day! Here you can see the jury of 2022.
Pien Jager is a consultant and co-founder of pandocracy. She knows a lot about how to start a business that will make a positive impact. Pien is dedicated to assisting and inspiring businesses in their efforts to implement circularity and sustainability.
JAN PIETER VERSLUIJS
Jan Pieter, an example of entrepreneurship. Not only did he set up his own solar panel company, he is also the founder of the All Energy Day! He will be an asset to the jury since he knows everything about starting a sustainable business.
As an investor you need to know everything about what makes a start-up promising and successful. That is exactly what Angela contributes as the third jury member! With her experience in start-ups and her analytical mindset, she is more than capable to select the right winner on May 24th!
René started as an entrepreneur while studying in Delft in the early nineties. With a background as boardmember of three multinationals in the offshore and maritime sector and as founder of a tidal energy company, he is now building the energy company “Groendus”. This is a large buy and build scale-up in the energy transition. His views and experience on building and growing new businesses will bring added insights to the jury.
