Winter School - Sustainable and Resilient Energy for Europe?!

The graduate school Energy Science and Engineering at TU Darmstadt is glad to invite Aalto University doctoral candidates and postdocs to join the international winter school from 6–8 December 2022 in Darmstadt, Germany. The event will explore scientific and technical aspects of the production and use of carbon-free and sustainable energy storage systems such as hydrogen and iron, as well as the socio-economic aspects such as multi-level governance of hydrogen strategies. Participants will thus gain a unique insight into current challenges and solution approaches in an energy landscape that is changing daily. This is a hybrid event where you can either participate online or physically onsite.

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.
