Welcome to the Energy Reinvented Community

With 1,300+ members the Energy Reinvented Community is designed to connect a wide range of stakeholders related to the energy industry. Its aim is to provide a platform for discussions, foster partnerships, spark ideas, generate innovation and enable cross sector and cross border activities, all related to society’s transition towards an accepted, reliable, clean and affordable energy system. 

In an open community our diverse international group of members (representing both the energy industry and adjacent industries) share ideas and opportunities to cross the bridges between the – now sometimes siloed - pillars of the energy system and driving connectedness with society at large.

Focus groups

Focus Groups develop programs, solutions, applications and pilot projects for the energy industry specific to the scope of the Focus Group. Occasionally these groups are the seat of broader programs, such as the North Sea Energy program an industry-driven research program that gathers and develops knowledge and technology for offshore system integration in the North Sea. Energy Reinvented Community members are invited to join Focus Groups to their own preference.
