RSM was the first business school to understand the importance of multidisciplinary energy research to all stakeholders – for business of course, but with the needs and issues of society always integrated into the knowledge we create and disseminate. Through our people the potential to create a healthy, vital, 100% renewable energy future is becoming a fact.

“No other business schools were doing energy research when we started this at RSM 10 years ago.” Wolf Ketter, Professor of Next Generation Information Systems at the Department of Technology and Operations Management at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University and Director of the Erasmus Centre for Future Energy Business (ECFEB).
“The genius of capitalism is to provide incentives for solving human problems and making these solutions widely available. This does require, however, a rethink of what prosperity means: more money - or fresh air? Prosperity is an accumulation of solutions to human problems, including how we shift from fossil fuels to clean renewables.” – Fred van Beuningen, RSM MSc (1986), Director of Clean Tech Delta and Board Member Erasmus Centre for Future Energy Business (ECFEB).
“My vision for Energy is ambitious: a 100% sustainable society in which we have the means and infrastructure to integrate renewables completely. Advanced methods like machine learning, data analytics, digitalisation and algorithms will enable us to integrate renewable resources into our energy market. The first step is educating the new generation to use these tools and technologies to facilitate smart and sustainable energy solutions.” Dr. Konstantina Valogianni, RSM PhD (2016), Assistant Professor of Information Systems at IE Business School.
