Background and Challenges

Energy has been a key factor in the development of countries, enabling their economic growth and shaping their environments to the needs of human society. Due to the increasing requirements for energy and its carbon based generation, however, a range of serious problems have evolved, such as the exhausting of resources, air pollution and global warming. Air pollution was successfully tackled during the second half of the 20th century and is no longer a serious problem. The problems around resources and CO2 emissions, however, remain. Using renewable energies on a large scale could eliminate these problems. Renewable energy technologies include biofuels, solar heating and cooling, solar power, as well as water and wind power. Research and development at universities and industries faces the challenge of how to find innovative concepts for a safe, sustainable, and economic energy supply in the future.
