The Laboratory for Energy Process Engineering provides modern technologies for safe, highly efficient and climate-friendly energy generation and distribution. Innovative energy converters such as the gas engine are used in biogas plants and combined heat and power plants. The aim of the internship is to enable students to assess and develop sustainable energy concepts and to know their limits.
