Exploring Renewable Energy Systems
The Institut für EnergieTransformation is a non-profit organisation that is exploring the transformation of previously considered classic energy formats into new renewable energy systems (Energiewende).
We strive to invent, promote, and support new concepts in both a practical and systematic way, aiming at reasonable energy and cost efficiency. These goals are being accomplished locally, as well as internationally in the following ways:
- Helping produce teaching videos for people in Bangladesh
- Consulting companies and organizations.
- Initiating and performing research projects
- Supporting students working on renewable energy
- Developing and testing prototypes
- Contributing to science and the international exchange of knowledge
