Creating focus for the energy transition

In 2019 we initiated the Centre for Energy Innovation (CEI) at the University of Twente. The ambition of CEI is to focus our researcher’s relevant knowledge and innovation power in the energy domain and connect it to partners in the outside world. With the 600+ researchers at the UT active in this field, we support and focus the energy transition through research, education and innovation. 

Today, with the help of many of you, we have made significant progress shaping the roadmap to realise this ambition. We have defined four research programmes where the unique breadth of knowledge available at our university can make a significant contribution to the energy transition: Advanced Battery Technology, Digitalization of the Energy System, Low-Energy Datacenters and Negative Emission technologies. We work together with external partners to work on these themes, and reach out to new allies sharing our ambitions. When it comes to education, we’re working on challenge-based learning programmes in close collaboration with the Saxion University of Applied Sciences and ROC van Twente. 

During this event, graciously hosted by professor Peter-Paul Verbeek, we want to give you an update about the CEI – and talk about how we can strengthen each others ambitions. We hope to inspire you to work together on the issues we face in realizing a successful energy transition, talk about the work that is already being done and our plans for the future of energy research at our university. There will also be time to ask questions you may have and to get to know your fellow researchers.
