About Me

I am Angèle Reinders, Associate Professor at University of Twente. I conduct research and teach in the field of sustainable design and sustainable energy technologies. 

Recently I established ARISE which is the sustainability network at University of Twente. Please have a look at the website of ARISE to be fully informed, see here.

Research

My research focuses on the integration of sustainable energy technologies in products, buildings and local infrastructures in particular photovoltaic (PV) solar energy by applying new design approaches and simulation tools that can combine technical research with other relevant disciplines. At present my design-driven research has four core pillars based on past experiences and present interests: (1) luminescent solar concentrator PV technologies, (2) performance and reliability of PV modules (in framework of COST Action PEARL PV), (3) residential smart grids (ERA-Net project CESEPS strongly contributes to this topic), (4) design of smart energy products and services. See also my projects.
