Seasonal heat storage systems are considered important elements of a more environmentally friendly energy economy and compensate for highly fluctuating output from e.g. solar or wind power plants. In the lecture, among other things, the development potentials as well as solution approaches will be explained using the example of the IN Campus in Ingolstadt.

CO2 reduction in the mobility sector is more topical than ever. In order to achieve the climate targets in Germany as well as in the EU, the consideration of technology-open and sustainable mobility solutions in the passenger car sector is indispensable.

Afterwards, the speakers will be available for discussion. The event is organised by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sabine Bschorer, head of the "Energiesysteme und Erneuerbare Energien" course ( at the Fakultät Maschinenbau.
