Director of Denmark’s Samsø Energy Academy, Søren Hermansen, has been confirmed as a guest speaker at the ERA Convention 2022: ‘Rental in Transition’ in Riga, Latvia, in June.

The Energy Academy is described on its website as “a project-based organisation focused on the consequences of climate change.”

Hermansen’s keynote speech – ‘Samsø - a circular economy community!’ – will take place on 16 June before the closing of the ERA Convention.

His presentation will look at energy self sufficiency and will discuss the role of data in improving sustainability.

He will explain how Samsø, a Danish island of 3,800 inhabitants, succeeded in becoming 100% self-sufficient through renewable energy. He will also discuss the role of data in improving sustainability and the importance of communities and social sustainability.

The ERA Convention 2022, ‘Rental in Transition’, will address the EU Green Deal, energies of the future and the role of the equipment rental industry in this transition.

It will take place at the Radisson Blu Latvija Conference & Spa Hotel in Riga on 15 and 16 June alongside the 15th European Rental Awards.
