As per 1 July, 2016 Max van den Berg, former Commissioner to the King of the Groningen Provincial Board is appointed Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Energy Academy Europe (EAE), succeeding Gertjan Lankhorst (CEO GasTerra).
Lankhorst was instrumental in the foundation of EAE, Van Den Berg will be focusing on the next phase. ‘Energy Academy aspires to be the main center of expertise in energy transition – which makes sense, if you take into account the vast knowledge and expertise that wasestablished in this region over the past decades. The transition from fossil to sustainable energy is a major topic around the globe. For this region it will be an important new economy for the future,’ says Van Den Berg.
A further transfer in the Board was conducted when recently Jan Willem van Hoogstraten of EBN succeeded Jan Boekelman.
