COVID-19 related information: The Summer School “Renewable Energy Systems” is planned as a face-to-face event. We are well aware that the global situation is in general very unpredictable, therefore the situation is continuously being closely monitored. If it won’t be possible to hold the Summer School as a face-to-face event, it will still take place as a virtual event. We will keep all interested students well informed about further developments and changes that may occur.

During the summer school, professors of several engineering departments teach, providing an interdisciplinary technical flavour to the following topics:

- Climate and resources
- Wind Energy
- Photovoltaics
- Hydro-Electric Power
- Geothermal Energy
- Power Electronics and Smart Grids
- Electrochemical Energy Storage

The side program implies excursions that are of technical and cultural interest and various free time activities.
