Launch of the Energy Innovation Atlas

Datum:13 december 2019
The Energy Innovation Atlas (EIA) has been launched. The EIA serves as a platform that maps innovations in the transitioning energy sector and so it might help societies deal with the many challenges in attaining sustainable energy supply. The platform consists of case reports and video summaries created by students over the course of a master class on the ‘Energy Transition & Innovation’. The Centre for Energy Economics Research (CEER) of the University of Groningen contributed to the development of this unique instrument.
