In this webinar on September 21, four experts will view this theme from three different angles. First, we will examine the current challenges in the electricity grid and how grid operators are rapidly innovating to cope with them.
Subsequently, we will consider the innovations needed to keep electricity reliable and affordable in the long term. Finally, we will look into the legal framework needed to achieve the ambitious sustainability targets required for the energy transition.

Workshop: Data-driven Innovation for the Energy Transition
WORKSHOP: Data-driven Innovation for the Energy Transition on Thursday September 21st – 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm at Mondai | House of AI @ NEXT Delft
Mondai | House of AI is pleased to host the workshop, organised in collaboration with the NL AIC working group Energy & Sustainability, TU Delft PowerWeb Institute and the TU Delft | AI Initiative.
During the workshop we look forward to bring together the Commit2Data community on energy with the Nederlandse AI Coalitie | NL AIC working group on Energy & Sustainability. The Commit2Data programme is coming to an end; the research and innovations its projects have delivered are worth exploring further. With this workshop we wish to present the research outcomes of the projects that focus on Energy and Big data. And together we want to determine the follow up research questions, the next innovation and the implementation steps.

Annual TU Delft PowerWeb Institute Conference
This year’s annual conference is a fact. “Optimizing Today’s Energy System for a Better Tomorrow”, hosted by the faculty of 3ME, will be a day full of insights and innovations in control and optimization for energy systems. In an era where sustainable energy systems are critical, this conference illuminates the instruments that facilitate this transition while ensuring a safe supply for tomorrow. There will be ample opportunities to learn about state-of-the-art developments and connect with industry peers over lunch and the closing drinks.
Don’t miss out, and sign up now!
When: Wednesday, 27 September 2023, 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Location: TU Delft X-Building
Address: Mekelweg 8, 2628 CD, Delft

Symposium Additive Manufacturing of Energy Materials
On 18 October 2023, the first symposium Additive Manufacturing of Energy Materials will take place at the U Parkhotel (University of Twente) in Enschede. This symposium is a joint 4TU.HTM & M2i initiative in collaboration with the University of Groningen.
To meet the increasing energy requirements in a low-carbon economy, the development of new materials that improve the efficiency of sustainable large scale energy conversion and storage systems is essential. Additive manufacturing (AM) technology with the capability of fabricating complex physical products of a variety of materials and composites from digital models is a great candidate for obtaining “pre-programmed” site-specific properties, as for example, well-defined three dimensional (3D) porous structures and novel materials for energy applications.
University of Twente will host the in-person one-day symposium expecting participants from multidisciplinary research (materials science, chemical engineering, physics, and mathematics), AM, and energy application communities.
This symposium is free of charge but we have a limit of 100 live attendees, so register now to ensure your seat!

European Fusion Teacher Day
Welcome to the 4th European Fusion Teacher Day! An annual event for all science and physics teachers in Europe, organised by FuseNet. The goal of the European Fusion Teacher Day is to introduce nuclear fusion to secondary school teachers throughout Europe, to discuss teaching nuclear fusion to secondary school students and to create enthusiasm for the field of fusion at the secondary education level.
The event features a domestic session with lectures by local fusion experts on current fusion research in your area. Next, the event offers a global livestream in which new (free) educational materials will be presented and keynote speakers from the international fusion community give an inside look into the largest scientific collaboration in the world. Both the domestic and global parts of the event are fully remote.
Participation is open to every science and physics teacher in Europe. Participation is free of charge. All participants will receive a certificate of attendance after the event.
Thursday November 16, 2023 from 1:15 PM to 5:00 PM
The Strategic Area Energy organizes various free events in order to present the Energy related research of TU/e. There are about 4 EnergyDays each year with subjects varying from Smart Districts and Metal Fuels to Geothermal energy. The program will be communicated soon.

NWO NERA Energy Symposium
Would you like to attend presentations on the latest in energy transition research? Or would you like to broaden your interdisciplinary network around energy transition as a researcher or policy maker? Then mark this date in your diary!
The energy transition is a challenge that requires solutions from many disciplines, ranging from technical innovations for batteries, to strategies to get citizens to make sustainable decisions. An interdisciplinary approach can be very successful in accelerating the energy transition.
Inspiring presentations and workshops will cover the latest results in energy research. In addition, the symposium will provide a place for researchers and policymakers from different disciplines to meet.
