Der Zusammenhang zwischen Energieverbrauch und schädlichen Treibhausgasen ist den meisten Menschen bewusst, doch wissen Sie auch, dass Energiesparen Spass macht und Geld spart? Eine rasch zunehmende Zahl von regionalen Fachbetrieben ist bereits sehr erfolgreich in der Energiebranche tätig. Erneuerbare Energien bergen einen doppelten Gewinn: Einerseits werden die knapper werdenden Ressourcen geschont und andererseits werden qualifizierte Arbeitsplätze gesichert. Wir vom Institut für Energiesysteme IES sind durch unsere Forschungskompetenz der ideale Partner für den Aufbau neuer Betätigungsfelder und die Optimierung bestehender Prozesse.
