How are Europe’s landscapes influenced by the changing energy sector?

19.01.2015

An international conference to be held in Dresden in September 2015 will address the repercussions of energy generation on Europe’s landscapes. Suggested topics for presentation should be submitted by 28 February.

Europe’s landscapes are being transformed by the growth in renewable energies and the ongoing exploitation of fossil fuels such as lignite and shale gas. The international conference “Energy Landscapes:

Perception, Planning, Participation and Power” organised by the Landscape Research Group will focus on the perception of these developments as well as on ways to influence them.

The conference will be held in Dresden from 16 to 18 September 2015.

The call for papers has been published on the conference website (http://lrg2015.ioer.info), where suggested topics for English-language presentations can be submitted until 28 February.

Early-stage researchers are also encouraged to contribute.

The conference is organised by the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development in cooperation with the Technische Universität Dresden and three other partners.

The target audience are students in this field as well as working scientists and practitioners. Keynote addresses will be held by prominent researchers in the field of energy and landscapes such as Maarten Wolsink from the University of Amsterdam/the Netherlands, Patrick Devine-Wright from the University of Exeter/UK as well as Don Mitchell from Syracuse University/USA.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
