As the world population increases and adopt lifestyles that are more energy intensive, different sectors such as industries, transport, agriculture, and residential also expand to meet their increasing demands. The pressure of this expansion falls on the energy sector which is primarily based on the limited stock of fossil fuels. The need to shift towards cleaner and renewable sources of energy all across the world has been recognized by many nations. This must be supported by research and innovation for tapping renewables and also to develop alternate technologies for efficient utilization of energy. This realization came early in Germany, as they make road maps to exploit a variety of renewable energy sources to meet the energy demands of the nation.

With its approximately 28400 students and 4000 doctoral students, Freie Universität Berlin is one of the largest and  most renowned research universities in Germany. In 2007, the university became one of Germany’s nine excellence universities by successfully reaching all funding criteria for the German Excellence Initiative, the major national research funding competition. Scholars and scientists teach and conduct research at Freie Universität Berlin‘s eleven departments, covering a nationally unique range of humanities and social science fields, as well as natural and life sciences. In addition, the university hosts three interdisciplinary institutes with a focus on regional studies, and co-hosts the Berlin Medical School, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, in collaboration with Humboldt-Universität Berlin.

RWTH Aachen University is a place where the future of our industrialised world is thought out. The University is proving to be a hotspot with increasing international recognition where innovative answers to global challenges are developed.
