The Network for Renewable Energy (NRG) is a network for inter-faculty research at the Technische Universität München consisting of a multitude of different chairs at the TUM which are focussing on the topic of renewable energy.
The network is one of currently four research centres at the Munich School of Engineering. Together, these four centres follow the aim to achieve a sustainable energy supply of the future.
NRG is headed by Professor Müller-Buschbaum, Chair for Functional Materials, and was founded to create the opportunity to stem interdisciplinary, large-scale research projects. Additionally regular meetings within the network take place to foster an active communication between different research groups.
The Network for Renewable Energy (NRG) was originally founded within the TUM-Energy network. Now the Munich School of Engineering (MSE) is the umbrella organisation containing the inter-faculty research platform TUM-Energy next to the teaching offered at the MSE.
There is already an active participation of various disciplines to form the NRG: Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Electronics and Informatics, as well as the Centre of Life and Food Sciences Weihenstephan, the Walter-Schottky-Institut and the Bavarian Center for applied Energy Research (ZAE Bayern).
The research within the Network for Renewable Energy therefore has a wide range from nanoelectronics and material research, as well as microbiology and theoretical chemistry to biomass power stations, wave and solar energy systems, to mention only a few.
New partners are invited to join the network by sending an informal email to the coordinator.
