This blog collects news relevant to the design of current and future energy systems, with a focus on economics, Europe and the Netherlands. The views expressed here are my own and not those of CWI Amsterdam (the research institute I am employed at).
I am not an expert on any single technology in energy systems (e.g. transmission, electric vehicles, batteries), but the interconnectedness in our energy systems makes a broader view very important, as well. I come across lots of links because I developed a general interest in this important societal topic during my PhD and thus come across lots of news stories. Sometimes I will give only the link, but if time allows, I'll summarise shortly what I think the most important or interesting bits are.
[This blog ran initially on Posterous, but they sold to Twitter and shut down. I decided to move it into my own domain.]
