‘Targeted research is needed to realise significant CO2 reduction’

Ruud Melieste
Corporate Strategist, Port of Rotterdam Authority
“As Standard Bearer Roadmap Smart Energy & Industry, I promote scientific research within the Rotterdam-based industry cluster. My current position is a corporate strategist, which allows me to analyze trends and developments in the energy and industry sectors, and to define long term scenarios, strategies, and roadmaps. I started my career at the local energy company, after which I entered into service with the port authority in 1993. Together with chemical businesses, I contributed to the development of pipeline infrastructure in the port and of the joint ventures MultiCore (with Vopak) and of RC2 ( with the German ARG). I was a member of the management of that company for quite some years. I also was the manager of a commercial department of the port authority a number of years, during which I was responsible for strengthening the competitive position of the port of Rotterdam as energy port and as an industrial cluster.”
