Safety in the energy transition
The energy transition is driven by the demand to act on climate change and global warming. As we transition from fossil to renewable fuels, it also changes our risk and accident profiles. Both the rescue services and the fire safety engineering professionals are facing new challenges, and the change is very fast.

Preparedness – Prevention - Response
The Energy Transition Safety Forum addresses the preparedness and prevention of renewable energy related hazards, but also the methods of response. Front line experts will share their experiences and the latest research results on Lithium-ion batteries, energy storages, electric vehicles, and solar panels.

The first day of the event is a single track day with international keynote speakers, the second day is divided into prevention and response tracks. The tracks cover hot topics in energy transition and are led by top experts.

Rescue Service, fire safety engineering, building, regulations, energy transition
