Germany has set itself an ambitious goal with the energy transition: a sustainable and environmentally friendly energy supply - away from nuclear and fossil fuels and towards renewable energies. At the same time, the energy transition is one of the biggest global research topics of our time, because coping with climate change requires very fundamental changes to our energy systems. In this respect, the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg is researching technical solutions for climate change and integrating central research topics in the areas of energy production, storage and use, for example for smart energy grids, low-CO2 industrial processes, but also for drives for the mobility of the future.
