TU Delft Energy Challenge Event (9 June 2022)

News - 28 April 2022 - Communication

Following the announcement that the theme for TU Delft’s 180th birthday would be, “speeding up the energy transition”, TU Delft's students began exploring what it means to transition to a society with more sustainable energy supplies. The result? On 9 June, the TU Delft campus will be dedicated to the energy transition and all eyes will be on the students and their ideas for the future of the energy transition.

During the Energy Challenge Event, there will be a plethora of ideas and prototypes on display, as well as plenty of activities for students (and staff) to take part in throughout the Building Campus (the area between the Faculty of Civil Engineering and The Green Village).

Discover what other faculties are doing to accelerate the energy transition, take part in various challenges, network with alumni, attend lunch lectures, cycle your own smoothie, learn about what you can do to contribute to this year’s lustrum mission, and more!

IDE and the Energy Transition

Not only is our faculty embracing the Energy Challenge within its curriculum, but it is also involved in side-projects that will take place either before or during the Energy Challenge Event on 9 June.

For example, students from the Master’s in Strategic Product Design course, Brand and Product Commercialisation, are collaborating with several sustainable start-ups to help put them on the map with new branding and marketing strategies.  

In addition to this, the MSc elective course, Vision in Design (ViP), is also taking part in the challenge and hopes to answer the question, “How will the energy transition remain sustainable in the future?”.

On 9 June, prototypes, presentations, and final assignments from IDE and all the TUD faculties will be on display at the Building Campus. There will also be the opportunity to meet the students, lecturers, and alumni behind these works while also enjoying a snack and a drink.

But wait, there’s more…

You can also expect presentations from the Energy Club, GreenTU, Energy for Refugees, as well as the university's various study associations and Dream Teams.

And last, but not least, students from TU Delft, InHolland, and the Hague University of Applied Sciences will demonstrate the ideas they developed together for a problem posed by the municipality of Delft, as part of the Energy Challenge and the City Deal/WijStad collaboration.
