The Room will serve as the central location for all sustainability-minded students, academics, and external parties on campus to come together and form a university-wide community.

Exhibition “Fixing Fuel”

“Fixing Fuel” is the first in a series of Green Room Exhibitions, curated by the GO Green Office TU/e and designed by Volle Kracht. The Green Room Exhibitions will appear 2-3 times per year and cover different themes within the realm of innovation for a sustainable future at TU/e. The exhibitions show work from students, researchers, spin-off companies and from the TU/e herself on all levels: research, education, valorization and management.

In the 1960’s, we discovered gas in the northern part of our country. Suddenly, this convenient fuel became available to us in unexpectedly large quantities. Within 10 years, the whole country switched from coal to gas: a massive project that was funded by this newfound “invisible gold”.
Skip to 60 years later and we find ourselves at the advent of another transition, but now we’re trying to close the gas tap. How can we get rid of fossil fuels and become less dependent on earthquake-inducing gas exploitation and what is the TU/e doing to facilitate this transition? In “Fixing Fuel – Enabling the gas transition at TU/e” the GO Green Office exhibits 5 projects from the TU/e that will contribute to the energy supply of the future.

The exhibition will be available in our Green Room on the ground floor of atlas from February 10 till the end of June. Will we see you there?

The official opening

The official opening of the Green Room took place on the 1st of June 2021. During the opening Anna Wieczorek and Dorine Peters from the TU/e gave an opening speech.
