EIRES – Eindhoven Institute for Renewable Energy Systems kindly invites you to join our next online EIRES Lunch lecture scheduled as follows:

Friday 23 September 2022

12h00  - 13h00 CET

Lighting the way to zero emission energy and mobility 

Auke Hoekstra | NEON Research Program at TU/e

Organized by
Lisanne Havinga and Guus Pemen | Principal Scientists EIRES Focus Area - System Integration

NEON (New Energy and mobility Outlook for the Netherlands) is a research program addressing three societal challenges: climate action, renewable energy, and smart & sustainable transport. Auke’s lecture will explain how the NEON program researches the transition to zero emission energy and mobility from a multi-disciplinary perspective. As it turns out, solar, wind, electric mobility and hydrogen can go a long way (all the way?) towards replacing fossil fuels.

About the speaker
Auke Hoekstra is an academic researcher at the Eindhoven University of Technology. He is also the initiator and director of the NEON research program and founder of ZEnMo Simulations. Both model how we can quickly transition away from fossil fuels using a bottom-up agent-based methodology that respects individual freedom, heterogeneity, and technological learning. He is informally known as “debunker in chief” on twitter, where he often corrects misinformation about electric vehicles.
