You have probably seen it in the news; the energy prices are increasing rapidly. The consequences will touch every aspect of our daily lives. But what is the reason behind this rapid increase? And what is the role of geopolitics? And maybe the most important question: is there a short-term solution? We managed to bring in a high-profile speaker to go into depth about the developments in global energy markets of today. Don’t miss out on this one!  

  • Get to know the reasons behind the increasing energy prices  
  • Find out how the geopolitical situation is influencing prices 
  • Learn what the scenarios for the future are 


‘The real problem is that European market participants have contracted too little pipeline gas’, is one of the statements of our speaker Coby van der Linde. The corona pandemic, low temperatures in springtime and higher bids of Chinese companies are others factors that are influencing the prices. Curious about the overarching story of an energy-issue that is directly influencing you and your neighbors? Join us on the 2nd of November.
