TU Delft simulation models support energy transition decisions

Where our energy will come from in the future will depend, among other things, on governments,  businesses and consumers. “Energy systems develop on the basis of technical progress, but also on the basis of government policy instruments, business investments and consumer behaviour. These also influence each other”, explains Emile Chapin, PhD candidate at the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management. What are the consequences of closing the nuclear power stations in Germany? More coal-fired power stations? Capture and storage of CO2? During his doctoral research, Chappin developed so-called ‘agent-based’ simulation models which use knowledge of how people make decisions to provide insight into the short-term and long-term consequences of those decisions.
