On behalf of the ISUenergy Scientific & Organising Committee it is a great pleasure to announce the 6th International Summer University on Renewable Energies and to invite your applications for this year's ISUenergy .The ISUenergy2014 will take place from Aug. 24th - Sept. 5th in Falera.

The International Summer University on Energy (ISUenergy 2014) 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, Political Science and Economics, and it follows the successful ISUenergy 2009, ISUenergy 2010, ISUenergy 2011, ISUenergy 2012, and ISUenergy 2013.

The ISUenergy 2014 will provide students with a solid foundation in photovoltaics, solar thermal technologies, wind energy, solar architecture, sustainability, smart grids and energy storage. Renowned 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  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.

Please find more information on the international summer university and on the application procedure under the following link. Early bird fee applications will be valid before May 15th, 2014, only.

The ISUenergy program website will be updated accordingly.

If you should have any questions, you are always welcome to contact us for more information: isue@helmholtz-berlin.de .

    Stability of perovskite solar cells reaches next milestone
    Perovskite semiconductors promise highly efficient and low-cost solar cells. However, the semi-organic material is very sensitive to temperature differences, which can quickly lead to fatigue damage in normal outdoor use. Adding a dipolar polymer compound to the precursor perovskite solution helps to counteract this. This has now been shown in a study published in the journal Science by an international team led by Antonio Abate, HZB. The solar cells produced in this way achieve efficiencies of well above 24 %, which hardly drop under rapid temperature fluctuations between -60 and +80 Celsius over one hundred cycles. That corresponds to about one year of outdoor use.

    Webinar | Ausgezeichnete Solararchitektur: Ausgewählte Projekte aus dem Architekturpreis gebäudeintegrierte Solartechnik 2022
    Die Solarenergienutzung an Gebäuden ist ein zentrales Thema auf dem Weg zur Klimaneutralität. Solartechnische Systeme sollten selbstverständliche Bestandteile innovativer Gebäudehüllen wie auch Bausteine energetischer Sanierung sein.
