Transforming buildings from energy consumers to energy suppliers? That is the vision of FraunhoferISE. Scientists and researchers explain how this can be achieved in this short yet informative video using the municipality building in Freiburg im Breisgau as an example.
The Earth intercepts a lot of solar power: 173,000 terawatts. That’s 10,000 times more power than the planet’s population uses. So is it possible that one day the world could be completely reliant on solar energy? Richard Komp examines how solar panels convert solar energy to electrical energy.
We cordially invite you to this free online-session on "The Integration of Solar and Wind Energy in the Grid Network" on August 10th at 2pm (CEST). It is a joint online-session offered by the University of Freiburg's Department of Sustainable Systems Engineering and Fraunhofer Institute for Energy Economics and Energy System Technology. The session is presented by Prof. Dr Anke Weidlich and Prof. Dr Kurt Rohrig, who are experts in their field. You can learn a lot about wind and solar as renewable energy sources, weather and climate dependency, grid connection of PV and wind turbines and more.
Join us and register here for this free online-session to get insights from both scientific and economic aspects of sun and wind energy.
The Gender Summit is creating regional and global multi-stakeholder communities committed to enhancing scientific excellence by: removing gender bias from science knowledge making; advancing gender equality in science structures and practices; and applying understanding of gender issues to advance more sustainable and effective research and innovation. Example organisations included in the programme are: UN agencies, World Bank, WWF, Global Research Council, Equal Measures, International Renewable Energy Agency, World Meteorological Organisation as well as universities, research funders and research publishers.
This year's programme is delivered in virtual format during 19-21 August 2020.

The SolarPower Summit, on 29 September Brussels, is SolarPower Europe’s annual flagship event and brings together over 300 industry representatives from all major energy players, as well as SMEs and a range of decision-makers from across the EU and beyond.
13th International Conference on Solar Energy for Buildings and Industry 01-04 September 2020 In September 2020, the International Solar Energy Society is pleased to present EuroSun 2020 - the 13th Conference on Solar Energy for Buildings and Industry.
The EU PVSEC 2020 will be a full online event maintaining all the basic features that a physical event is recognisable for: Live presentations in all cases (Plenary, Oral and Visual) and the possibility of live interaction between presenters and audience (questions, debate) via face to face tools and Q&A chat.
The event will take place in Central European Time / CET=(UTC+1).
The conference will bring together academics, researchers, engineers, students, and industry professionals, to address and discuss the state of the art of renewable energy systems and environmental issues.
The energy transition days thrive on the commitment of every individual: helping to shape is not only desired, but crucial for joint projects. From citizens' initiatives to associations, from municipal utilities to companies, from local authorities to plant operators - everyone can participate and present their ideas to the general public in campaigns and events.
The annual “O&M and Asset Management” event has been rebranded to “Solar Quality” to expand the scope and bring together experts from the fields of O&M, Asset Management and EPC to advance long-term quality of Europe’s solar power plants.
Solar Power Europe brings the world’s largest gathering of renewable energy buyers and suppliers is back – and after fantastic feedback to last year’s event, we have decided to continue our corporate renewable energy sourcing discussions in the same location: the exquisite Hotel Okura in Amsterdam.
