2E Energy & Environment
Limited resources are shifting renewable energy technologies to the heart of future energy supplies. In addition, one of the biggest challenges is maintaining a clean environment.
Our educational systems from the 2E-range make it possible to learn the related techniques in a clear and practical manner.
The amount of solar energy that falls on the Earth’s land areas over one year is almost 2000 times greater than the entire world’s energy demand. Given the global climate problem, using this potential in the best possible way seems self-evident.
Traditional hydropower systems have been in use for hundreds of years as a source of energy for a wide variety of mechanical applications. As such, hydropower represents a renewable energy source that has been successfully used for a long time. Since the beginning of hydropower-generated electricity, the percentage of electrical energy generated in this way has grown to around one quarter of all the electricity used worldwide.
In this section you will find suitable teaching systems for developing an understanding of all the principal aspects of wind energy use. The range provides the chance both to teach the fundamentals of aerodynamics and to deepen understanding of topical application issues from machinery monitoring for modern wind power plants.
We offer three devices in the biomass field, which provide a practical representation and illustration of the fundamental processes.
Usually when talking about geothermal energy a distinction is made between shallow geothermal energy and deep geothermal energy.
The expansion of renewable energies has led to many small decentralised energy producers, such as wind power plants and photovoltaic installations, being set up. This led to a complex system with new challenges such as the varying availability of solar energy and wind energy.
Structural and technical techniques for resource conservation
The area of water focuses on water treatment. The aim of water treatment is always to re-move specific substances from the water. This can be used to clean wastewater in a wastewater treatment plant prior to discharge into a body of water. The aim of water treat-ment may also be to make water usable for a particular purpose, e.g. in the treatment of potable water.
The didactic focus of the air subject area is the various methods for treating gaseous media (air pollution control). Most contaminants can be removed from an exhaust airflow by mechanical or thermal processes.
Usually all three phases (solid, liquid and gaseous) are encountered in the soil. Similarly, all three phases can be affected by contamination. Soil treatment requires a holistic approach which takes all three phases in the soil and their complex interactions into account.
Waste consists of a wide variety of materials and represents an important resource for the procurement of raw materials for the economy.
