The TPM Energy Transition Lab organises a series of seminars on energy justice research. This series will cover the research that is being done within the faculty on the normative aspects of the energy transition, including ethical analysis, stakeholder inclusion, community engagement, and modelling approaches. 

Past seminars:
Dimensions of energy justice

  • Udo Pesch: Introduction to the seminar: TPM and the study of normative aspects of the energy transition
  • Nynke van Uffelen: From energy justice framework to claims of injustice: about normative uncertainties
