Katja Kruit
senior researcher/consultant | theme leader Built Environment

Since 2017 I’ve been with CE Delft, where my work is varied and challenging, thanks to the wide-ranging topics and clients. What motivates me most is a desire to make a concrete contribution to a sustainable world.

About Katja

My work at CE Delft focuses on the energy transition in the built environment. My expertise lies in the heat transition, including local and national policy, technological options for carbon reduction and technical-economic models . Questions I address include: What sort of heating systems might we have in 2030 and 2050? What policies can best be used to speed up the energy transition both equitably and affordably? And how can local authorities, energy suppliers and residents together make the right choices to prepare them for the future? The research and consultancy work I do for Dutch government branches and organisations helps them address these challenges.

I have a background in chemical technology and sustainable energy technology (Delft University of Technology). Before joining CE Delft I researched heat batteries at TNO and coordinated an interdisciplinary research project on sustainable cities at the University of Minnesota in the US. Since 2017 I’ve been with CE Delft, where my work is varied and challenging, thanks to the wide-ranging topics and clients. What motivates me most is a desire to make a concrete contribution to a sustainable world.
