Workshop: The social hurdle of the Energy transition

What is working in the field of energy transition like? What are some of the barriers and opportunities, and how can you contribute to accelerating the energy transition?

This interactive event will focus on the social aspects that are also important for the transition, even for engineers. During this event you will gain first-hand experience with the sort of cases you can expect to work on in the field. These cases will be brought in by some of the trainees at Talent voor Transitie from their own assignments.

The evening is co-organized by Studium Generale TU Delft, Delft Sustainable Energy Association and Talent voor Transitie. The doors open at 17:30 and food will be provided. The program starts at 18:15 with an introduction, after which the interactive part starts. We will finish at 21:00 with drinks. We hope to see you there!

Talent voor Transitie is a traineeship in the energy transition sector. The training during the program focusses on the skills and knowledge needed to make your impact in accelerating the transition. The network includes sustainable scale-ups, regional governments, associations and major corporations. One of the best parts is the community of trainees in the program who learn, grow and make impact together.

In-house day TenneT & DNV-GL

We spent an amazing in-house day at TenneT and DNV-GL on Thursday!

We got the chance to work on a business case about offshore wind power in the North Sea at TenneT during the morning and we could visit their offices. In the afternoon, we moved to DNV-GL, where we also got to know their projects and staff, we played an Energy game and we finished the day with some drinks.

Thank you to everyone who helped organise this awesome visit and the SET students who joined. You can check out the after movie of the event on our Facebook page! šŸ˜‰

Thanks for coming to Graduating SET!

We had a great time yesterday at the Graduating SET event!

After a general presentation about the Thesis process and requirements, we could listen to the experience of a SET alumni and of second year students from all the different tracks. We also enjoyed some pizzas and drinks together! šŸ•

Thanks to all the interested students who joined, we hope you solved some of your doubts!

Energy for Refugees Introductory Event

Up to 7,000 refugees live in the Olive Grove refugee camp and they have limited access to reliable electricity. Most of the power is currently supplied from a diesel generator which is costly and harmful to the environment. Last year, with your support, the Energy for Refugees team installed a solar energy system to a digital learning lab for children in Kara Tepe camp. This July, the team will be heading back to Lesvos to install a system four times bigger than the previous yearā€™s. Their solar power system of 27 kW will be used to provide energy to light the camp at night, to heat water for washing clothes, showering and for charging phones.

They need your help to improve the living conditions of the people in the refugee camps! We invite you to visit their crowdfunding page and donate:

On 8th May they will have an Introductory event in which you can learn more about their project. Find more information about the event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/2205295322851519/
