This morning, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander opened the new Energy Transition Centre (EnTranCe) in Groningen. EnTranCe is an energy testing ground where students, researchers, the industry and the public create solutions for the energy supply of the future. EnTranCe is a joint initiative of Hanze University of Applied Sciences (UAS) in Groningen and the Energy Academy Europe.
The King opened EnTranCe in the presence of more than 250 guests. Following the opening, he received a tour of the grounds. Secondary vocational, college and university students, lecturers and entrepreneurs from the Northern region showcased the latest developments in the field of energy.
Hanze UAS focuses its education and research on the transition to a sustainable society based on the use of clean energy sources. New solutions and new approaches are needed at a large scale, and requires the input from students, teachers and professors. Hanze UAS offers two masters in the field of energy: the technically oriented European Master in Renewable Energy and the European Master in Sustainable Energy Management System, which focuses on the multidisciplinary aspects of energy systems.
