The relation between energy consumption and harmful greenhouse gases is well-known to most people, but do you also know that energy savings are fun and save money? A rapidly growing number of regional specialist companies is already very successful in the energy sector. Renewable energies offer a double profit: On the one hand, scarce resources are preserved, and on the other hand qualified jobs are secured. Our research competences at the Institute for Energy Systems IES enable us to be the ideal partner for the development of new fields of operation and the optimization of existing processes.

Orientation of the IES

The changes in the energy sector will accelerate further in the coming years. Everybody is affected by this change, not only individual economical sectors. It is important to put the good ideas into practice and to take advantage of the opportunities.

Based on the concept of SystemtechnikNTB, which comprises electronics, mechanics and computer science, the Institute for Energy Systems IES combines an energy-efficient and CO2-free usage of technology. The conception of system is the basis for project engineering.

The Institute for Energy Systems is mainly involved in the following areas

  • Research: Applied research and development in the field of thermal and electrical energy systems (power electronics, photovoltaics, heat pumps, refrigeration technology, power supply and acoustics). Transnational research with our partner network.
  • Service: Measurement services and projects in cooperation with industrial partners and our partner network. Laboratory and field measurements of thermal and electrical installations.
  • Education: Bachelor's degree in electrical and thermodynamic energy systems.
  • Continuing Education: Specialist courses, colloquia, lectures, meetings, professional Master (MAS) and consecutive Masters (MSE)
