In the module “Energy transformation”, current discourses and challenges in the context of energy (policy) are examined and discussed. Different forms of energy as well as their production and supply mechanisms will be considered. Political and economic interests are considered and compared with the technical feasibility. Different fields of action and approaches to solutions are discussed from an interdisciplinary perspective.
An overview of players in the energy industry, regional energy production in Aachen and current research questions will be developed.
The concluding discussion is prepared by questions from the students during the course of the module. For this purpose the students collect aspects in the first two months, which are discussed in the last session.
