Successful symposium on latest Energy research

Looking back on a successful
NWO NERA Energy Symposium 2024!

On February 2, 2024, the second edition of the NWO NERA Energy Symposium took place. This year’s theme was “Energy Transition – Working Together for a Sustainable Future”.

Inspiring presentations and workshops highlighted the latest results in energy research during the event. In addition, the symposium provided a place for hundreds of researchers and policy makers from different disciplines to meet.

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.

Coming Events

Friday February 9, 2024 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

EIRES Lunch Lecture 

Solar building envelopes – key building blocks for the energy transition

By incorporating technologies to harness the energy that is abundantly available in the urban environment, solar building envelopes can seamlessly combine reductions in energy demand for heating, cooling and lighting, with the supply of on-site renewable energy. Such developments pave the way towards positive-energy buildings; buildings that provide comfortable living/working conditions for occupants without negative environmental impact.

During this lecture, we will explore the outcomes of a series of application-oriented R&D projects, shedding light on the state-of-the-art in solar building envelope technologies and their potential to expedite the energy transition. The discussion will focus on the performance assessment of various technologies, including building-integrated photovoltaics, dynamic thermal insulation, and energy-producing fenestration systems. This analysis combines simulation studies and real-world experiments, showcasing examples from SolarBEAT—the research facility dedicated to testing innovative solar systems, prominently positioned atop the Vertigo Building at TU/e.

Media Outreach Training for Young Researchers in the field of Climate and Energy


Media Outreach Training on Wednesday the 17th of April for Young Researchers in the field of Climate and Energy. In 2022, Climate Action Hub of TU Delft | The Hague and KlimaatHelpdesk have jointly hosted the first Media Training in The Hague. Together with more than 30 PhD’s and post-docs, we have discussed challenges of communicating the rapidly evolving insights of climate research to society.

Participants have been intensively trained in how to generate public interest for their research and how to present themself in the media with confidence.
Climate Action Hub of TU Delft | The Hague and KlimaatHelpdesk will continue with the media outreach training for PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers in April 2024.

The aim is to equip early career climate researchers with communication skills and tools to prepare for presence with media independently in their career future. The basic training focuses on a general introduction to science communication and media. This training is targeted towards early career researchers with no prior experience in science communication and media.

Wednesday 17 April 2024 Basic Training: Introduction to science communication and media In this training, you will gain confidence in dealing with the media and understanding of the role of social media in science communication.

You will engage and build your skills through hands-on case studies. The training will be conducted in English.

Tentative time: 10 -17 hrs
Symbolic fee: 50 euro per candidate
Maximum capacity: 25 participants
Location: TU Delft | The Hague, Bezuidenhoutseweg 63, Den Haag

European Geothermal PhD Days  (EGPD2024)

The 15th edition of the European Geothermal PhD Days (EGPD) will take place at TU Delft on April 2024. This year, the event is organised by PhD candidates from the faculty CEG at the TU Delft.

What is EGPD?
The European Geothermal PhD Days is an annual event organised by PhD candidates from different universities all around the continent. It was started in 2010 as an initiative of the EERA joint programme on geothermal energy, and is now in its 13th instalment. Every year, between 50 and 80 young scientists from various research fields in geothermal energy come together to share knowledge and experience about this promising energy source.

No matter what stage you are at, EGPD 2024 is an excellent opportunity to (re)connect with like-minded PhD candidates and Early-Stage Researchers in the Geothermal Energy sector across Europe.

The program includes:

Talks from geothermal experts
Poster and presentation sessions
Networking events

The 1st Electrochemical Conversion National Symposium

Welcome to the 1st National Symposium on Electrochemical Conversion: The Future of Electrochemical Conversion – Hydrogen and Beyond!

We are excited to invite you to explore the transformative landscape of chemicals and fuels production where electrochemical conversion stands as a cornerstone of innovation. This symposium serves as a meeting point for the entire innovation chain community to discuss, share, and ultimately unlock the potential of electrochemistry in the Netherlands in generating sustainable chemicals and fuels.

Throughout this one-day symposium, we aim to foster dynamic discussions, exchange groundbreaking ideas, and create synergies for future collaborations. Together, we will delve into pioneering research on component, electrolyser, and plant design for water, CO2, and non-CO2 electrochemical processes. We will also explore the electrolysis-based process integration into its supply chain, together with a strategic view of the economic, social, and political forces. This gathering provides a unique platform for envisioning shared pathways toward the sustainability of electrolysis-based processes from a multi-faceted perspective.

Join us for a discussion about a sustainable energy future. Let us harness the power of collaboration in the electrochemical conversion field to turn ideas into action and to drive positive change that resonates far beyond the confines of this symposium!
