Raising Awareness for Climate Challenges: Student Initiative “Energie Forum Aachen e.V.” Visits CWD


Global warming is evidently affecting the climate resulting in extreme weather events such as increased coastal flooding and intense heat waves occurring more frequently, while certain regions are characterized by comparatively harsh winters. As the burning of fossil energy sources alongside deforestation belong to the main reasons of global warming, the Center for Wind Power Drives draws attention to wind energy as a solution for effective decarbonizing. In this respect, the CWD focuses on optimizing the technology required to make sustainable energy affordable. Students and scientists at “Energie Forum Aachen e.V.” share the goal of raising awareness for ecologically-friendly as well as affordable solutions. The student initiative organizes talks, field trips and workshops and, last week, discussed short-term approaches of decarbonization among other topics with CWD experts.
