International Summer University on Energy 2015

Renewable Energies VII: Photovoltaics, Solar Thermal & Wind

 23rd August to 4th September 2015 in Falera, Switzerland

The International Summer University on Energy (ISUenergy 2015) invites you to participate in two unforgettable weeks to learn, experience and enjoy a series of seminars and lectures on renewable energies in the Swiss Alps. The school integrates different academic fields such as Physics, Material Science, Material Engineering, Architecture, Sociology, Political Science and Economics and it follows the successful ISUenergy 2009, ISUenergy 2010, ISUenergy 2011, ISUenergy 2012, ISUenergy 2013 and ISUenergy 2014.

The ISUenergy 2015 will provide students with a solid foundation in photovoltaics, solar thermal technologies, wind energy, solar architecture, sustainability, smart grids and energy storage. Well-known researchers and scientists from leading universities and institutes will give lectures covering a wide range of topics on the principles of renewable energy. Theoretical knowledge will be complemented with practical workshops (table experiments) in the first week and creative group projects (e. g. building a solar oven or installation of a LED lightening system) in the second week with special on hands-on experience.

The school primarily addresses students at Master level or to Diploma students (also PhD students are welcomed) who prove to have an outstanding performance. As the ISUenergy 2015 is interdisciplinary, participants from different academic fields are encouraged to enrol.
