The ONS committees – a strong tradition
Our committees make us very proud. A great number of people from companies across the energy industry offer their time, knowledge and effort to help develop and improve ONS. They give input on conference topics, speakers, marketing, social arenas and so on – which makes the job so much easier for the ONS team!

The committees have been an important part of ONS since the beginning, and we are grateful that so many companies pitch in with their know-how. It is one of the secrets of the ONS success story.

These are the committees for ONS 2016:

Conference Committee
Clean Energy Committee
Communications Committee
Festival Committee
Innovation Jury
Technical Committee
