Winter School - Sustainable and Resilient Energy for Europe?!
Date: 6-8 December
Venue: hybrid event - you can participate either online or on-site at TU Darmstadt, Germany
The transformation of energy systems is one of the most pressing challenges of our time. While climate neutrality and the reduction of fossil CO2 emissions were in the foreground in the past years, security of supply has become a high priority since the Russian war against Ukraine. However, a sustainable and resilient energy supply also means moving away from fossil fuels. To increasingly replace them with wind and solar, chemical energy carriers such as hydrogen are key to storing, transporting and using renewable energy. As another complementary option to hydrogen, metals such as iron have come more into the focus of science and industry as carbon-free energy storage. Whatever the technical solution may be, it must not be evaluated separately, but always in combination with the socio-economic aspects.
Who should attend
The Winter School Energy Science and Engineering is directed towards doctoral candidates and postdocs performing research on energy systems, energy policy or the energy enconomy, as well as practicing engineers and researchers involved in R&D of energy systems.
