Abstract

A unique way of teaching practical aspects of renewable energy technologies has been experimented in the University of Oldenburg since 1987. An energy laboratory (Energielabor), built in 1982 and powered by renewable energy sources, has been used for practical training, lectures and office space for the staff and students engaged in the field of renewable energy at the University. After 30 years of service, this Energielabor requires revision and needs to be rebuilt to meet the needs of present age. In this direction, as part of a module named 'Case Study', PPRE masters' students assessed the locally available renewable energy resources and estimated the energy demand for a newly proposed design for the upcoming new Energielabor. This paper presents the first results of these energy demand and resource assessments, along with highlighting the didactical concepts and motivations behind the newly proposed design.
