We propose to enlarge the evaluation to (1) the entire cycles, and (2) to an evaluation that uses different ethical systems. (see for example Sovacool, Burke, Baker, Kotikalapudi, & Wlokas, 2017) We hereby will focus on two technologies: Photovoltaics and nuclear energy provision. We will look at the places where the cycles are prominent (for example: uranium mining in Namibia) and use the ethical systems in these places (African philosophy). Location: Eindhoven University of Technology, Het Eeuwsel 57, 5612 AZ Eindhoven. Start is in IPO building, room 1.18. Afterwards, the workshop takes place in Connector building, room 1.02.

171204 PROGRAM Energy Ethics without Borders

4TU Centre for Ethics and Technology (the Netherlands) and SPRU (Sussex, UK) are organizing a workshop on ‘Energy Ethics without Borders’.

A classical (dominant?) approach (in Europe, at least) of evaluation of technologies is done by mainly European ethics (See for a good example Sovacool and Dworkin 2015) and often focusses on only a part of the cycle.

We propose to enlarge the evaluation to (1) the entire cycles, and (2) to an evaluation that uses different ethical systems. (see for example Sovacool, Burke, Baker, Kotikalapudi, & Wlokas, 2017) We hereby will focus on two technologies: Photovoltaics and nuclear energy provision. We will look at the places where the cycles are prominent (for example: uranium mining in Namibia) and use the ethical systems in these places (African philosophy).

Location: Eindhoven University of Technology, Het Eeuwsel 57, 5612 AZ Eindhoven. Start is in IPO building, room 1.18. Afterwards, the workshop takes place in Connector building, room 1.02.
