Jan Frederik Braun at Bosphorus Summit

November 29th 2018 - 10:11

From 26-28 November, the 9th Bosphorus Summit took place in Istanbul, presented by The Al-Attiyah Foundation.

Dr. Jan Frederik Braun participated in the panel 'The World of Gas,' focusing on the rapidly changing gas scene. 

Jan commented on the Dutch energy industry and the role of gas in Europe: “The Netherlands is quickly shifting its role from the EU’s largest producer and exporter to a net importer of natural gas. The radical overhaul of the Dutch energy system is to a large extent representative of the whole of Europe: rapidly declining gas production, an increasing dependence on gas imports while phasing out coal and going for more renewables.”
