Thank you for following the Energy Transition 2020

The Energy Transition 2020 was organized as a series of webinars, as the conference planned for March was canceled. 

You can watch all of the webinars, as well as videos from previous years, on our Youtube channel.

We aim to be back again in April 2021, either physically, digitally or a combination of both.

Follow us here and sign up for our newlsetter to stay up to date about upcoming events and activities from the NTNU Energy Transition Initiative.
