By Lucienne Krosse, Thematic leader Smart Buildings and Cities, InnoEnergy
Lucienne Krosse has a background in Chemical Engineering.She obtained her Master’s degree from the University of Twente in the Netherlands. At the Technical University of Delft she worked on her PhD “compact thermochemical storage”.
Afterwards, she started to work for the Dutch Institute for Applied Scientific Research, TNO , where she served in different scientific, business and management positions. During that time she also worked for a year at the Dutch Embassy in Beijing at the department of Economic affairs. Meanwhile she was involved in setting up a joint venture for TNO in China, BBTDC. She holds several patents and initiated many European projects and dedicated product developments in close cooperation with industry.
Since 2014 she is employed by InnoEnergy as thematic leader for Smart Buildings and Cities in Europe. InnoEnergy invests in the development and market implementation of innovative energy related products and services. Furthermore, InnoEnergy is the largest energy incubator in Europe.
In her opinion, about one third of the primary energy used, is consumed in buildings and cities.
Another one third is consumed by the transport sector.
Cities as central concentration points, are key for the decarbonisation of the energy system.
