Ep15: Auke Hoekstra 'The Debunker-in-Chief‪'‬ Cleaning Up. Leadership in an age of climate change.

    • News Commentary

How can we use data modelling to predict the future of zero-emission energy? This week, Auke Hoekstra discusses the SparkCity model, dealing with, adoption of electric vehicles, charging infrastructure, and the effects the switch to EVs is going to have on the grid.

Auke joins Michael for this week's episode from his self-designed energy positive house in the Netherlands. Not only is he a researcher at the Eindhoven University of Technology but also the founder of Zenmo simulations and initiated NEON a research programme focusing on transport and sustainability.

Auke debunks a few myths as well: electric cars do not emit more CO2 than ICE vehicles and trucks are actually electrifiable. They also discuss how the EIA’s and the IEA’s forecasts on solar cost and penetration have aged (spoiler: not well).
