  Institute for Reactor Safety and Reactor Technology (Univ.-Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Hans-Josef Allelein)

Alternative Energy Technologies (L2/E2) Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Hans-Josef Allelein together with Prof. Dr.-Ing. André Bardow

This lecture ist offered in cooperation with the Chair of Technical Thermodynamics. It deals with the physical, technical and economical basics of alternative energy technologies, especially regenerative technologies. Based on their technical, economical and ecological aspects, new energy systems are assessed.

The following subjects are specified:

Special emphasis is put on the topic of regenerative energy sources. The assessment of the energy systems is done with especially taking technical, economic and ecological aspects into consideration.

The sun as an alternative source of energywindforce as a source of energy
