Future Energy Systems

TU Darmstadt Energy Center

Energy research at Technical University Darmstadt includes a wide range of scientific topics and methods. 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 it to address economic aspects, ecological compatibility as well as social acceptance and political governance.


Energy is a cross-cutting topic that requires the interdisciplinary integration of all relevant research disciplines. More


In Darmstadt Graduate School of Excellence Energy Science and Engineering several graduate students from eight different departments cooperate in various research topics. More


Due to the high number of application-oriented research topics, the profile area Future Energy Systems cooperates with various industrial companies, professional associations as well as political entities. More
