Welcome to the Department of Energy Systems


The Department of Energy Systems deals with interdisciplinary topics related to renewable energies and its environmental, economic, political and social aspects. In Germany as well as internationally, we are among the distinguished academic institutions with a focus on energy and its interrelatedness with a variety of neighboring research areas. 
Our multidisciplinary research approach is reflected by our team's expertise in disciplines like engineering, economics and policy. Our areas of expertise are:

  • Novel energy supply systems, analysis of innovations and impact assessments
  • Energy poverty, energy access and development in the global south
  • Climate change mitigation and adaptation
  • Social aspects of the energy transition
  • Energy policy and market designs

Apart from research, the department contributes to training of future energy experts with its extensive range of basic as well as advanced level lectures, presentations, excursions and the supervision of student theses.

The head of the Department of Energy Systems is Prof. Dr. Boris Heinz. From 1995 to 2018, Prof. Dr. Georg Erdmann was head of the department. He was president of the IAEE and of the GEE. From 2011 to 2019, he was member of the Cabinet of Germany's expert council for the monitoring of the German energy transition.
