EIRES unites all TU/e researchers and student teams working on energy-related topics and builds connections with external partners.

Student teams

TU/e has various student teams; teams that focus on (local) energy related issues as well as internationally competing teams.

Honors team (1st year)


Bubbl/e is researching the feasibility of the BCPG: a solenoid connected to a column, in which a magnetisable fluid flows. With the help of a permanent magnet around the column and gas bubbles pumped into it, this system could potentially generate electricity. Coach: YALI TANG

Honors team (1st year)

Circular pavilion

This team designs a pavilion for Eb & Vloed September 2023 energy festival in Renesse. The pavilion is a transitional space that is designed to encourage thought and discussion on wind energy, based on the aesthetics and functionality.

Student team


Falcon Electric Aviation aims to make existing aircraft with less than 30 passengers sustainable by developing electric power train conversion kits.

Student team

Neg-C (Negative Carbon)

Neg-C strives to provide value for humanity by mimicking the lungs of the earth. This is done by creating technological parks that can capture carbon dioxide directly from the air and, subsequently, store or utilize it to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and help combat the results of climate change.

Honors Team (2nd year)


The aim of the project is to develop an algorithm for Smart Meters that disaggregates the energy consumption of households and small offices into the appliance level.

Student team


Kickstarting the use of hydrogen as a sustainable energy carrier by creating a smart, small-scale hydrogen energy system. SHIFT is developing a modular elektrolyser & energy management system that can convert excess green energy to hydrogen.

Student team

Solar Team Eindhoven

Solar Team Eindhoven is working on the sustainable mobility of the future and participated in the 2019 World Solar Challenge in Australia with their solar car Stella Era. This family car can also share energy and park itself autonomously in the sun to charge.

Student team


SOLID aims to create an ecosystem for metal fuels as circular energy carriers.

Honors team (2nd year)

Team Better/e

Team Better/e aims to create an open-source iron redox flow battery setup and enable researchers and students worldwide to work side by side on improving it while sharing their findings.

Student team (former Honors)


Designing homes with comfort and health in mind so that people want to live in them. In addition, homes should provide a healthy indoor climate and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Student team

Team Energy

Team Energy realizes events to accelerate the transition towards sustainable energy. We aim to inform, inspire and connect students.

Honors Team (2nd year)

Team InCharge

Team InCharge focuses on the wireless charging of electric vehicles while driving (dynamic wireless charging/DWC).

Student team (former Honors)

Team Polar

Our goal is to develop a sustainable, autonomous and affordable vehicle to facilitate research on the Antarctic continent.

Student team (former Honors)

Team Renew CO2

The core mission of Renew CO2 is facilitating the sustainable utilization of carbon dioxide. It is our main goal to capture CO2. A favourable result of this is a viable resource: formic acid.

Student team (former Honors)

Team RED

Accelerate the energy transition through an innovation guiding platform. Team RED offers intuitive insight into how energy is used and how this system can be improved.

Honors team (1st year)

Team Voltalgae

Voltalgae is working on a solution for off-grid, small scale, decentralized energy needs: algae battery made from sustainable materials, continuously providing energy and less dependent on weather. Coach: HAN VAN KASTEREN.

Honors team (1st year)


Team TheroSel researches the viability of thermochemical energy storage and aims to establish a platform to communicate this technology to the general public. Coach: MARK COX

Honors team (1st year)

V2A (former Airport)

V2A will investigate how vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology can be implemented in parking garages P3/P4 of Eindhoven Airport to store the generated energy in an effective, innovative, and economically feasible way. Coach: MARK COX
