Time: 10:00 – 14:00h
Location: Room 0105, Energy Academy Europe (Nijenborgh 6)

​Low oil prices, energy security, climate change, air pollution, food and water shortages: many of these challenges relate to the way our energy system is designed. You may wonder, how should these structural challenges be addressed? During the masterclass Mart Lubben will help you explore the energy system of the Netherlands.

  • Enjoy an Interactive masterclass including lunch
  • Get to know the ins and outs of our energy system
  • Reflect on the nexus between energy technology, energy security, legislation, social change and market design
  • Learn to use the Energy Transition Model (ETM)
  • Come up with solutions for current challenges with your fellow students
  • Discuss the possible outcomes of the energy transition

Energy Transition Model

The Energy Transition Model is an independent, comprehensive and fact-based energy model that is used by governments, corporations and NGOs for training purposes, decision making and to facilitate discussions. The model is a free, open source, online tool for future energy scenario analysis. Instead of trying to predict the future, the ETM is meant to help users explore it and get a grip on important future developments.

Do not miss out on this unique opportunity and register today – calling students from all study fields, to participate and contribute!

This event is a public event organized by the Energy Academy and is defined as an Energy Learning Activity for students of the Hanze University of Applied Sciences and the University of Groningen. The Energy Learning Activities are part of the Energy Academy Programme. If students follow 10 Energy Learning Activities and complete 30 ECTS in energy courses at Hanze UAS or University of Groningen, they are eligible for obtaining the Energy Academy Certificate.


Mart Lubben is an Energy Transition Consultant at Quintel Intelligence. He is committed to increasing the collective understanding of the energy system in the light of the transitions. Nobody has a complete picture. Making joint exploration of possibilities and impossibilities for the energy transition a necessity. He is currently active in the Province of Flevoland, the RES region of Midden-Holland and in Groningen, where he helps with sketching the future based on the Energy Transition Model. Mart is a natural connector and system thinker.

Mart holds a Masters in Industrial Ecology, with a Bachelors in Biology. In addition to his work at Quintel, he is a member of the Council for the Environment and Infrastructure on a variety of themes, such as Mobility, Digital and Electricity Infrastructure Interference and Aviation. He also has teaching qualifications and a lot of experience in giving workshops.
