Rational energy use and municipal energy concepts

The event has taken place annually since the winter semester 2012/13 and has ended.


  • Prof. Dr.-Ing. Johanna Myrzik, Chair of Energy Efficiency (Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology)
  • Prof. Dr. Hans-Peter Tietz, Chair of Supply and Disposal Systems (Faculty of Spatial Planning)


Part Rational use of energy (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Johanna Myrzik)

  • Fundamentals of energy conversion processes
  • Preparation of energy concepts and balances
  • Rational energy conversion (e.g. cogeneration, lighting, refrigeration, heat pumps, compressed air systems, thermal insulation)
  • Examples of energy management in industry
  • Potentials of climate-friendly and efficient technologies
  • Energy efficiency in the electrical energy supply
  • Power quality aspects for increasing efficiency in electrical energy supply

Part Municipal Energy Concepts (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans-Peter Tietz)

  • Distribution of roles between "overall spatial planning" and "specialist energy planning
  • The target and action level of municipal and regional energy concepts
  • Securing areas, sites and routes for energy supply in the spatial plannung
  • The actors in integrated development planning for energy supply
  • Best practice examples for energy concepts

After successful completion, the students know the various methods and techniques for the rational use of electrical and non-electrical energy. They are able to assess the various measures for increasing efficiency and independently draw up energy concepts and balances. After successful completion, the students know the special tasks that are assigned to the overall spatial planning in interaction with the specialised planning of energy supply and other actors in the implementation in the necessary interdisciplinary planning and approval procedures and processes.
