The Energy Valley Foundation has been in existence since 2003 as a network organisation working together with public and private partners to explore regional growth opportunities in the energy sector. The institute acts as an intermediary to accelerate projects, promote knowledge sharing and strengthen the northern energy region.
The institute is made up of a team of energy professionals who, in consultation with the Supervisory Board and relevant government bodies, support initiative-takers in implementing energy projects. Our focus lies on energy innovations which link up directly with national and international energy ambitions and regional strengths. Energy Valley is funded on a project-by-project basis by Samenwerkingsverband Noord-Nederland (SNN), the European Union, the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, regional governments, the corporate sector and knowledge institutes. The current project period runs until 2015.
