Research Projects at MSE
In addition to the research centers, scientists of various disciplines work together in different research projects. They collaborate on the initiative TUM.Energy to examine key issues relating to energy supply and energy use.
Research projects at MSE aim to pursue broad objectives:
- Research and development of flexible power plants
- Advance development of organic photovoltaics
- Development of energy efficient and smart cities
- Control of renewable energy systems
- Optimization of energy storage and grid stability
- Research on geothermal energy
The research projects run for fixed periods and address issues within the MSE spectrum of topics. They are organized on a cross-functional basis.
Energy Valley Bavaria develops research approaches on flexible power plants, renewable energies and intelligent energy supply within its two subprojects and three Junior Research Groups.
Research into decentralized energy storage in the EEBatt Project aims to achieve efficient use of renewable energies and guarantee grid stability.
The use of geothermal energy has increased significantly in recent years, leading to greater demand for research in this area. This collaborative project brings together and extends research into geothermal energy at TUM, at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) and University of Bayreuth. The joint master's program in geothermal energy/geoenergy will provide the appropriate skills for would-be specialists.
The ICER cooperation project between TUM and NTU Singapore shall form the fundament for a research platform that can meet the challenges of changing the power supply towards a sustainable energy system.
