Energy Transition project (University College)

On the Energy Transition project you learn how to realistically model the complex stakes and interactions in the transition from unsustainable to sustainable energy practices. This involves consumers, governments and the energy industry. You also develop an interactive Energy Transition Game that demonstrates that you have a realistic understanding of the opportunities and threats faced by each sector of society, and their complex interactions.

In the Energy Transition Game we challenge you to discuss and solve various dilemmas and policy options related to energy transition. You need to combine the various perspectives of the above disciplines and work together to win the game.

Petrus Camper Track (Honours College)

If you would like to sink your teeth into academically and socially relevant themes such as sustainability and energy, you could add a 20 ECTS component to your degree programme to broaden your subject knowledge. The Petrus Camper Track, offered by the Honours College, will provide you with new perspectives and knowledge. Take a look, for example, at the course units Sustainable Markets, Social Aspects of Sustainability, Energy and Climate Law.
