Technologies and values Ethicists tend to view values as enduring or long-lasting beliefs about what is good or desirable. Examples of values are sustainability, affordability, and fairness. Technologies are considered to be value-laden; they shape the actions and decisions of people and can therefore never be truly dissociated from the values that they infringe or …

Join the PhD group of the Energy Transition Lab!
As the Energy Transition Lab (ETL) of the Technology Policy and Management Faculty at TU Delft grows, researchers working on energy topics are coming together. The ETL directives extend this effort across the PhD candidates in the TPM faculty. And we, the PhDs, could benefit from it. Towards the end of 2021, twelve PhD candidates …
Modelling complexity in the energy transition
Over the years, it has become clearer and clearer: the energy transition is taking shape. Research on the energy transition also evolves. In the TPM Energy Transition Lab, we aim to take a risky interdisciplinary approach to further our knowledge on ‘what works’ and ‘what doesn’t’, when it comes to the coming decades in the energy transition. Simulating the complexity of the energy transition may help to unravel many of the challenges and trade-offs. I sketch how simulating the complexity helps to explore possible energy policy effects.
