GESS IIb: Overview of Energy Efficiency in Industry and Buildings
The most economical and climate-friendly kilowatt hour is the kilowatt hour that we do not consume. Thus, an efficient utilisation of energy should be in the focus of every energy system among others in buildings and industry. This course provides you with a comprehensive but concise overview on how energy efficiency in buildings and industrial processes can be enhanced.
- Cross-sectional technologies in industry
- Analysis of the energy supply and energy consumption in industry
- Architectural design principles and modern technologies for ecological buildings
- Assessment of the energy performance of existing and new buildings
- Policy design techniques and legal instruments for promoting energy efficiency
- Definitions and methodology of Energy Management and the ISO 50001

Matthis Brinkhaus joined the Renewables Academy (RENAC) AG in September 2013. He was working first as a project assistant in the advanced online training of the capacity building programme on renewable energy & grid integration (ReGrid). Since June 2015 he has been working as a project manager in the three-year capacity building programme on renewable energy & grid integration (CapREG). He mainly develops new learning materials for the online training but he is also involved in face-to-face trainings and development of mobile exhibitions.
Before joining RENAC, Matthis gained experience in different fields of energy at home and abroad. He worked for a German company developing hydrogen fuel cells, for a consultancy of the Indian solar market based in New Delhi and for a German company involved in micro-energy projects.
Matthis Brinkhaus studied Engineering and Business Management. He did his Bachelor of Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Ansbach and his Master of Science at the Technical University of Berlin, graduating in May 2015. Throughout his studies he focussed on energy technology and energy economics. In his Master thesis he investigated the Indian balancing power market. Matthis speaks German and English and has advanced knowledge in French.
Michael Grausam is a freelance architect and research assistant at the University Stuttgart. He is responsible for management of the accompanying research within the Electromobility Model Regions Programme (BMVI - Federal Ministry for Transport and digital Infrastructure). Mr Grausam has extensive experience with the energetic modernization of schools in Morocco, India and Haiti. His project work includes: the construction of a low-cost solar heater prototype for rural schools in Ain Lkhil, Morocco; conceptual study for the use of rainwater and grey water in Khadigram, India; and conceptual design of an offshore shelter for refugees in distress at sea.
As a freelancer Michael also worked on the cooperative project "Villes Nouvelles": initiation and project management of the research project on sustainable urban planning and construction in Morocco and Germany. Previously he worked as an expert for energy-efficiency in buildings within the GIZ programme PEREN (Promotion des Énergies Renouvelables et de l’Efficacité Énergétique) in Morocco.
Mr. Grausam studied Architecture at the University Stuttgart.
