My book: Knagende Vragen (nagging questions)

[Dutch] Inmiddels is mijn boek 'Knagende Vragen' in de negende druk. Het is dus hard op weg een bestseller te worden. Knagende Vragen beginnen met verwondering over de gewoonste dingen in het leven. Wie heeft zich, liggend op een grasveld, niet afgevraagd waarom wolken er zo bloemkoolachtig uitzien?

Report: Rethinking power

We are entering an era in which we will cultivate, harvest, and manufacture energy. This will bring about profound changes to the entire energy system. I explain this in a booklet for the Eindhoven Energy Institute, established in 2009 to bring together many strands of energy research. The booklet shows its main areas green mobility, solar energy, fusion energy, and energy use in cities. The scientist of the institute give their vision on this topic, and describe their research.
