Climate protection in Schools: a prototype for targeted oriented knowledge transfer for students on the basis of energy efficient buildings

The saying "Was Hänschen nicht lernt, lernt Hans nimmermehr." which can be translated with the English saying "You can´t teach an old dog new tricks." especially applies to the issue of "climate protection" in general. Therefore children must be made aware of the importance of the subject from the beginning on in order to live their life efficiently and environmentally friendly. Based on a research and on an evaluation of existing teaching materials teachers and students will develop, how students understand the topic "climate protection" with a focus on "building and living in the future" the easiest way.

PLAISIR - Planning Innovation: Learning form socially innovative energy projects

PLAISIR analyses socially innovative energy projects in structurally disadvantaged regions and therefore is the first project working in the research gap at the interface between social capital-oriented endogenous regional development and resource-oriented energy planning. The practice of socially innovative energy planning is analysed in the context of spatial structural, spatial energy planning development paths at the regional level with the aim to identify region specific and the project-specific factors of social innovation in energy-oriented planning.

P³Power - Plug&Play Storage of Photovoltaic Power

The core of the project P³Power is the measurement technology NetDetection, which is able to detect the power consumption of a household from any point, e.g. a regular wall socket. Based on this technology a plug&play powerplant, consisting of photovoltaics and battery pack, is realized. The system is able to guarantee 100% self-consumption within flexible aggregates (from single households to whole communes) without any changes of existing infrastructure. The measurement technology will be implemented into digital hardware, evaluated comprehensively in lab and household environment and subsequently new energy service business models are developed.
