7th Master Class Course „Renewable Energies“, 03.12. – 07.12.2012
Place: Beuth Hochschule für Technik, Berlin
Eberswalde University of Applied Science and Beuth University of Applied Science are organizing the 7th Students Master Class Course which will be held in Berlin on 3th – 7th December 2012. The Course is sponsored by PCK Refinery Schwedt. Lectures in energy economy, energy technology and energy politics will be given and technical tours are planned. Within the Master Class Course the Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Systems Analysis and Technology Evaluation (IEK-STE) of the Forschungszentrum Jülich organizes a one day section (Transformation of the energy system: Challenges and solutions) with special emphasis on energy research topics. Lectures will be given about geothermal energy use, energy storage, energy efficient buildings and nuclear waste strategies.

International School on Energy Systems (ISES 2012)
Forschungszentrum Jülich's IEK-STE is organizing the international and interdisciplinary school on energy systems from 1 to 5 October 2012 at Kloster Seeon, Germany.
The school invites young researchers in the fields of energy technologies, economics, political science, and related disciplines to discuss the challenges of present and future energy systems.
The week-long programme features presentations by keynote speakers, discussions by the participants, poster sessions, and interactive components concerning every aspect of energy systems. From an international viewpoint the ISES 2012 curriculum covers the major issues of today's energy systems and the transformation process towards sustainability, including energy technology, energy economics, energy policy, climate and environment as well as the development of criteria for future sustainable international energy systems. Applications from interested young researchers are welcome until 31 May 2012.
More information regarding the school and the application process can be accessed via the school's website: www.fz-juelich.de/iek/iek-ste/ises2012
Final workshop NET-ELAN
On 23 February 2012, the Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Systems Research and Technology Evaluation (IEK-STE) is organizing a workshop together with its cooperation partners
- Ford Forschungszentrum Aachen GmbH,
- Technische Universität Berlin – Department of Land and Sea Transport Systems – Automotive Engineering Division,
- Technische Universität Berlin – School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science – Chair of Sustainable Electric Networks and Sources of Energy,
- Vattenfall Europe Innovation GmbH, and
- Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart
to discuss the results of the research project “Grid integration of electrified drive systems into existing and future energy supply structures” (or NET-ELAN for short) funded by BMWi.
The project aims to answer key questions regarding the development of electromobility in Germany based on technical and energy economy models:
• What are the technical opportunities and restrictions in terms of the integration of electric vehicles into the electricity supply grid?
• What is the potential for an efficient integration of intermittent energy sources (such as wind energy)?
• What impact does the use of electric vehicles have on electricity consumption?
• What are the resulting emissions (environmental impacts)?
• What economic framework conditions have to be considered?
The workshop aims to present project results and discuss them with experts specializing in different fields, as well as to prepare future research and development tasks with a view to the grid integration of electric vehicles. More information on the project and workshop is available at www.net-elan.de.
Workshop on CCS acceptance research in Germany
On 25 January 2012, IEK-STE is organizing a workshop on CCS acceptance research in Germany in cooperation with the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy, focussing on current results, practical relevance and perspectives. The aim is to present relevant scientific approaches and current research results providing information on factors and processes for CCS acceptance in Germany that could be important. The ensuing panel discussion will focus on the practical implementation of the research results and their transferability to other technology fields.
The workshop is aimed at interested experts from politics, administration, economy and civil society/NGOs. In an open dialogue with all those involved, the workshop will focus on drawing conclusions on aspects to be considered by politics and industry when implementing large-scale CCS projects. In addition, the need for further research into the acceptance of CCS and other large-scale energy technology projects will also be identified.
More details on the programme: Acceptance research workshop
The event will take place in the auditorium of the Wuppertal Institute and is free of charge. However, the number of participants is limited. Please register online for the conference by 13 January 2012.
