Bruens, Ilona

Ilona Bruens leads CertiQ, the Dutch Issuing Body for electricity and renewable heath. Since 2020 full disclosure is in place in the Netherlands, so CertiQ experienced its first full year certifying also non-renewable electricity. Prior to CertiQ, Ilona worked 12 years within CertiQs mother company, TenneT TSO. She developed ideas to keep a right balance to ensure a reliable, sustainable and affordable energy system and brought these ideas further to policymakers, politicians and regulators.

Ilona studied Business Administration at the University of Nijmegen, Financial Law at the Erasmus University and Accountancy at VU Amsterdam.
