Energy Mission 2023

Energy mission banner 2023

It is time for the 4th challenging edition of Energy Mission

Since 2020, we embarked on our mission-oriented and cross-sectoral energy transition journey. We showed solutions and financial opportunities for the built environment, industry and electrification. The successful conferences brought together over 500 engaged stakeholders from the quadruple helix.


Energy Mission 2023 will take place on 17 October in Genk, Belgium. The venue Thor Central, located in the middle of Thor Park, offers a unique location to inspire, share and connect.
Thor Park itself is one of the advanced European living labs on energy transition. It transformed from a coal mine into a state-of-the-art technology park.

Bridging the gap

Our key challenge for the 2023 conference: how to bring all these promising innovations to the market? How to get the end user, the citizen, to accept them or even design them themselves? How to bridge the final gap to a broad application?
Without any doubt, “energy living labs” play a crucial role in this last mile to the market. These living labs are state-of-the-art, open innovation ecosystems where energy technologies are tested and improved in real interaction with end users and in real interaction with other components. After this phase, the innovations are ready for a go-to-market.

Your front row seat to Innovation in Action

What and who will you find at Energy Mission – Empowered by living labs?
