Welcome to the Energy Reinvented Community

With 1,000+ 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. 

Working groups

Working Groups develop programs, solutions, applications and pilot projects for the energy industry specific to the scope of the Working 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 Working Groups to their own preference.


Questions about us?

The Energy Reinvented Community is more than just a series of events: the idea is a community of stakeholders committed to demonstrating and furthering the industries innovative profile.

By bringing together industry leaders, policy makers and knowledge institutes, our goal is to develop ongoing innovation efforts, foster partnerships and facilitate high-level discussions on crucial issues, ranging from R&D to regulatory issues and public perception of the industry.

We welcome your comments and questions about the Energy Reinvented Community.
