Energy systems of the future
Interdisciplinary energy research at TU Darmstadt
Researchers in numerous institutes from 10 departments work together on technology development, system integration as well as fundamental research. The research activities are characterised by a high level of innovation and interdisciplinary cooperation.
Just as important as the development of technological solutions is to address economic aspects, ecological compatibility as well as social acceptance and political governance.
The Graduate School of Excellence Energy Science and Engineering and the interdisciplinary master programme Energy Science and Engineering offer a professional training in a multidisciplinary field of expertise.
Showcase of our energy research
Due to the growing amount of renewable energy and the increasing degree of automizatien and digitalization, our energy system gets more complex.
For a successful “Energiewende” the power transmission plays an important role. At TU Darmstadt new technologies for long-distance power transition are investigated.
In order to cope with the increasing amount of volatile energy production storage technologies are necessary. We investigate the processes of synthetic fuel production based on renewable energy.
Scientists from 37 institutes in 10 departments (Engineering, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences) are involved in the profile area Future Energy Systems.
