Energy Center and advisory board
Science-based information and advice to the public and decision-makers

TU Darmstadt Energy Center and the "Beirat des TU Darmstadt Energy Center e.V." have been promoting and supporting energy research in Darmstadt since 2007. This guarantees science-based and neutral information and advice to the public and decision-makers in business and politics.

Beirat des TU Darmstadt Energy Center e.V.

Energy is crucial for quality of life and prosperity. It must be available in a sustainable manner. In this sense, the energy transition fundamentally changes the traditional energy system. This process takes time and can only be achieved based on public consent. The Advisory Board of the Energy Center tries to bridge the gap between university, industry, regional administration and to promote dialogue.

Professor Peter Birkner,
Chairperson of the board

The members of the advisory board reflect, comment and supplement constructively the energy research activities at TU Darmstadt. The advisory board is particularly devoted to promoting young academics. We invite you to participate.”

The managing committee of the advisory board was first elected in 2007 at the founding assembly at the Darmstadt Residence Palace. One third of the members of this committee are individual members, company members and administrative bodies, in addition to the spokesperson of TU Darmstadt Energy Center.

The managing committee of the advisory board acts as a jury for awarding the energy prize, an award for excellent theses and dissertations in the field of energy research.
