The transition towards a sustainable energy supply is the challenge of the 21st century for politics, business, and science. The Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) confronts the challenge by hosting once again an “Energy Week”. From 17 to 21 November, latest developments energy storage, future mobility, smart grid, photovoltaic, and wind energy will be in lectures and discussed with experts.
Kick-Off with Film Clips
Today, Monday, 17 November, the theme week will start with the question: “Global Climate Change – Is There Still a Chance for a Global Energy Revolution?”. For the official opening, the producer and filmmaker Jörg Altekruse will exclusively premiere his impressions of climate change selected film clips.
