Electrical engineering

Electrical Engineering is an  engineering science that deals with research and development, as well as production, assembly and maintenance of electrical equipment and...

Glühlampen sind in den letzten Jahren deutlich energieffizienter geworden.

Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency generally describes the ratio of a certain benefit – for example, the provision of light or heat – to its energy input. The less energy used to manufacture or operate a product, the more energy-efficient and...

Auch Biosgasanlagen können Teil einer Energiegemeinschaft sein.

Energy Community

An energy community is an association of at least two, but usually several participants, in order to be able to both jointly produce and use energy in the form of electricity, heat and biogas. Members of this community can produce, store, sell, and...

Vor allem die Chemische Industrie  gehöt zu den energieintensiven Branchen

Energy-intensive

Energy-intensive products are those whose production or operation requires above-average amounts of energy. The term comes from the noun energy intensity. Among other things, this is also an economic indicator of energy efficiency. Here, the energy...

Sonne und Wind gehören zu den heute zu den wichtigsten Energieträgern

Energy source/energy carrier

In a closed system, an energy source is the element that provides energy by conversion from another form of energy. It is used to generate useful energy, such as electricity, heating or energy needed to drive. Energy sources can be divided into...

Auch Atomenergie gehört nich zu den nachhaltigen Energiearten.

Energy Transition

Energy transition refers to the change from non-sustainable, fossil energy sources such as oil, natural gas and coal as well as nuclear energy to a sustainable energy supply using renewable energies from wind, water and sun. The aim is to create an...

Die Stromwirtschaft ist eines der wichtigsten Teile der Energiewirtschaft.

Energy industry

Energy industry refers to the branch of industry dealing with the production, processing and distribution of energy. These include town gas, natural gas, liquid fuels, electrical energy, district heating, oil and solid energy sources such as coal...

Energy Saving

The aim is to reduce energy consumption through innovative and efficient technologies, thereby reducing CO2 emissions in particular.

Auch Steckdoesen gehören zu den Elektro-installationen.

Electrical installations

Electrical installations refer to the power supply for electrical working and operating equipment, such as lighting or sockets. These electrical installations include the laying of the necessary cables, the operation as well as the safety concept of...
