In this course, participants meet every two weeks for a roughly 4,5 hour round-table session.  Every session focuses primarily on a given technical or nontechnical topic  regarding the energy revolution (see below).  For each session, 6 or 7 suitable sources (for example studies, papers, journal articles, etc.) are introduced by the participants in short presentations and then discussed by the group.  At the end of each session, a list of sources for the next meeting will be handed out and assigned to the students to prepare for the next session.

Please note: the number of participants is limited for organizational reasons – if too many sign up there will be a lottery.  If you are interested in participating, please sign up per email (AsEnWe@ifes.uni-hannover.de ) by September 30th at the latest.  In the email, please write your name, course of study, and your current bachelor or master semester. 

The following topics were discussed in the winter semester of 2019/2020:

  • Worldwide energy revolution
  • Obstacles for the acceptance of the energy revolution
  • CO2 pricing systems and their effects on climate protection
  • New mobility concepts and their effects on climate protection
  • “Joker“-Topic, chosen by the participants -> WiSe 19/20: supply reliability in the context of closing coal and nuclear plants
  • Negative CO2 emissions and sustainable CO2 cycles


We use the Stud.IP website from Leibniz University Hannover for the management of the courses (date and time announcements, lecture and tutorial materials, video recordings…).  Please look there for more information.
