Our interdisciplinary department’s research is focusing on energy-related process and systems analyses. Data searches, model development and system simulations are used to determine energy and mass balances, as well as to evaluate performance, emissions and costs of future energy systems. The results are used for performing comparative assessment studies between the various systems. Our current priorities include the development of energy strategies, in accordance with the German Federal Government’s greenhouse gas reduction targets, by designing new infrastructures for sustainable and secure energy supply chains and by conducting cost analysis studies for integrating new technologies into future energy market frameworks.
