The TPM Energy Transition Lab is an experimental lab with the ambition to perform innovative and interdisciplinary research on the development of new approaches, methods and tools for fostering an effective, fair, legitimate energy transition. From various perspectives and with various (multi)methods, TPM Energy Transition Lab studies behavior in and design of the energy transition. The TPM Energy Transition Lab aims to develop out-of-the-box, high risk activities that connect TPMs researchers and strengthens the position of energy transition research at TPM and TU Delft.

TPM Energy Transition Lab – Next Phase

After the first phase (2020 – 2022), the TPM Energy Transition Lab will continue its activities in three research projects in the next couple of years. These projects are on "Behaviour", "Design", and "Exploration". Two postdocs (Katharina Biely and Tristan de Wildt) explored these themes in the first phase. In the next step, two PhD projects will build upon their work to enhance research output: Marielle Rietkerk and Lukas Schubotz.
