Wel­come to the De­part­ment of En­ergy Sys­tem Tech­no­lo­gies (EST)

The Department of Energy System Technologies exists since October 2020 and is located in the Institute of Electrical Engineering. We are working on the research and development of decentralized, sustainable energy generation and distribution as well as the analysis of energy demand. The research is interdisciplinary and interfaces in particular with mechanical engineering, computer science, and the natural, economic, and social sciences.

We focus on the following three topics:

  •     Regional renewable energy systems
  •     Industrial and commercial sector coupling concepts
  •     Data analysis in the context of renewable energy systems

The course offerings include lectures and tutorials on energy systems engineering and energy efficiency. Due to the interdisciplinary orientation of the EST department, the course offerings are open to students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering as well as to students of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics.
