I am the “founding father” of Energy Storage NL. The platform originates from a seminar about energy storage that I organised in 2013. The seminar struck home, and together with a network of professionals and other interested parties I expanded a shared interest into a full-grown platform.

At FME, industrial association for the Dutch technological industry, I serve as Programme Director CleanTech and Cluster Manager Energy. I am also member on the board of TKI Smart Grids, and coordinator of the domain “innovation and commercialisation” of the Dutch National Energy Agreement.
