ERPRU’s Komalirani Yenneti has just returned from the Ninth International Summer Academy on Energy and the Environment at Greifswald and Berlin, Germany. The event, which took place between the 21st and 28th of July, was organised by the University of Greifswald and IKEM (Institute for Climate protection, Energy & Mobility). The Summer Academy aims to act as an interdisciplinary and intergenerational forum for highly qualified young researchers and professionals working on energy and/or environment issues. This year’s event on the theme ‘Energy Transition: Expansion and Integration of Renewable Energy Sources’ addressed the challenges surrounding the evolution of energy supply, moving from a traditional, fossil-fuel based energy system to a renewable-based one.
