Energy Now is a yearly organised congress aimed at students from different disciplines within the technical university, but is also very interesting for professionals from science and business. The congress outlines recent developments regarding the energy transition through several elements. Inspirational talks will highlight promising and interesting topics and challenges these bring forward. During interactive workshops given by a variety of companies, students and professionals collaborate to find solutions to energy-related cases on a more in-depth level. The multi-disciplinary exhibition floor enables participants to share and discuss their perspectives. Through a panel discussion these different perspectives are connected and the future of the energy transition is discussed.

The energy transition is a topic with high societal relevance, some important changes need to be made in order to maintain life as we know it today. Initiating these changes is challenging and not only awareness and willingness are needed, but also new creative ideas and smart technical innovations. The goal of Energy Now is to inform, inspire, and connect students with the different stakeholders in the field of energy: from researchers to professionals, from business to science. By highlighting recent challenges and technical innovations in the sector, students can discover the various ways they can contribute to the transition towards sustainable energy.

“Storage & Conversion: the key to a sustainable energy system” is the theme of Energy Now 2018. The transition to a world powered by sustainable energy is up and running. Although energy sources such as solar and wind are successful, major steps still need to be taken to reach the targets as agreed on in Paris 2015. One of the issues with the most used sustainable energy resources is their weather-dependency: they do not produce on a constant level. Therefore, supply and demand are not meeting in the current system. On top of that, to take the energy transition to the next level and phase out fossil fuels, working alternatives to polluting activities in sectors such as industry and mobility are needed. Energy Now 2018 will take a closer look at the possible solutions for the missing links in the transition to a sustainable system, which can be found in the storage and conversion of energy.
