Module Description
As the world gears up to face the climate challenge, new sustainable energy solutions are presented everywhere. But are they hoax or hip? This is your sustainable energy overview module. Learn to ask the right questions when you share, comment or like new ideas for sustainable energy solutions such as wind, solar and lightning solutions. Get your facts straight on sustainable energy.

DTU’s world leading specialists in sustainable solutions will guide you through the new ideas coming out of the labs, bust the myths of what you see on social media and show you the latest developments in the large research facilities at the world-renowned Risø Campus.


Here are some of the questions this module will explore:

  • What are the right questions to ask when new sustainable solutions are hyped?
  • How do we assess the relevant scale of new inventions?
  • Are wind or solar the best investment in future sustainable energy solutions?
  • Can sustainable energy solutions keep pace with increased power consumption needs when half of all cars will be electric by 2030 and new global data centers are build?

The module will address the stated questions and provide some insights to inspire you.
