Energy Entrepreneurship and Rural Electrification
Since 2005, the Microenergy Systems Research Group has been offering the seminar Energy Entrepreneurship and Rural Electrification for students of the international Master's Program Global Production Engineering at the Technical University of Berlin. The two-week block seminar introduces the students to the concept of microenergy systems and offers a comprehensive training course on setting up a company in the microenergy sector with guest lectures by experts and practitioners from this field. Students work in teams to develop business plans for micro-energy companies, mostly in their country of origin. The course was designed by Daniel Philipp and is currently being conducted together with Jonas van der Straeten.
