Intelligent electricity grids, insulated walls, and smart homes: The Energiewende starts at home. But how can energy-efficient applications be supported, which technologies are required, and how can the private Energiewende at home become worthwhile? These questions will be answered by scientists of the KIT Energy Center on Monday, July 7, 2014, at 18.30 hrs. At the Karlsruhe City Hall, they will present fascinating research relating to the transformation of the energy system.
