Position: Director

Company: Consortium Green IT Amsterdam Region

WHAT ARE YOUR DAILY ACTIVITIES WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION? 

I currently work for the Consortium Green IT Amsterdam Region, where around 45 industry and research organizations from (mainly) the ICT sector and energy sector work in cooperation on making energy more energy efficient and on applying ICT solutions in the built environment to increase energy efficiency. The Netherlands has a strong ICT sector, and this sector is both a huge consumer of electricity and potentially a huge contributor to energy savings.

Improving on this asks for balancing the interests of e.g. ICT manufacturers, datacenters, energy suppliers, policy makers, citizens, construction and engineering companies. In short, we develop research initiatives, we investigate policy options, and we create business opportunities for our partners.
