Angèle Reinders

Professor of Design of Sustainable Energy Systems at Eindhoven University of Technology

Angèle Reinders

Angèle Reinders is a full professor of 'Design of Sustainable Energy Systems' at the Department of Mechanical Engineering in Eindhoven University of Technology. She aims at an optimal use and integration of sustainable energy technologies in products, buildings and local infrastructures to support the energy transition. In this design-driven research theme improved designs of sustainable energy systems are explored and also developed by means of simulation, prototyping and testing. Next to being a full professor at TU/e, Angèle Reinders is an Associate Professor at University of Twente and a visiting professor at the School of Photovoltaics & Renewable Energy Engineering of UNSW in Sydney. In the past she conducted research at - among others - Fraunhofer Institute of Solar Energy in Freiburg, the World Bank in Washington, D.C., ENEA in Naples, Center of Urban Energy in Toronto and in the remote areas of Papua in Indonesia. From 2010 to 2017 she was appointed as a full professor at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering in TU Delft. She is known for her books “The Power of Design” (2012),  “Photovoltaic Solar Energy From Fundamentals to Applications” (2017) and “Designing with Photovoltaics” (2020).  Projects which she has been leading range from design-driven research projects on solar powered mobility to exclusively research-oriented projects on performance analysis and reliability of PV systems in Europe,  like COST Action PEARL PV, and on product development for smart energy systems such as ERA-Net Smart Grid Plus Project CESEPS. She has been involved in new program development for New European Bauhaus and, also recently, on urban heating in the ageing built environment (HERITAGE project). Moreover, she is involved in various tasks of the International Energy Agency PVPS program among which Task 17 on PV for Transport. Angèle Reinders studied experimental physics at Utrecht University, where she also received her doctoral degree in chemistry.
