Douwe van der Stroom

Professional background

Douwe works in the energy transition team of the Port of Rotterdam. Here, he is involved in the decarbonization of the largest energy system in the Netherlands, currently accounting for 20% of the national CO2 emissions. He guides and supports various projects, including those related to hydrogen, wind energy, and smart energy systems.

Douwe completed his high school education at the United World College in Italy, followed by studies in economics and digital innovation at King’s and Imperial College London. “No values, no show” is a creed that Douwe firmly believes in because it is challenging to fight for a just world without a moral foundation. In addition to his studies in London, he strongly supported the Remain campaign (unsuccessfully), the start of Extinction Rebellion, and organized a congress on the ethics of artificial intelligence.

Personal motto

No values, no show
