Nudge is excited to announce that Enexis will participate in this year’s Nudge Global Leadership Challenge.
Enexis manages the energy networks in the Northern, Eastern and Southern parts of the Netherlands. The organisation provides gas and electricity to a total of around 2.7 million customers on a daily basis. They maintain and renew the network (power cables, gas pipelines and substations) and care for high standards of network reliability and safety.
So, what does this have to do with sustainability?
Enexis develops smart grids, a smart and flexible network, which operates according to the energy demand and supply and helps customers to save energy. The organisation wants to serve as a role model by inspiring others to create a more sustainable world. They do this by recycling raw materials, compensating energy loss in the nets and building energy neutral houses, as well as by focussing on decreasing their footprint.
As sustainable development asks for leaders with the courage and resilience to bring that change, Enexis sends two of their young talents to the Global Challenge in order to help them develop their skills in leadership and sustainability.
