Sustainable methods, technical knowledge and hands-on experience

SRH Hochschule Berlin signs collaboration agreement with the Berlin Energy Lab for Renewable Energies (BELARE) and enables its Engineering students to gain plenty of practical experience during their studies.

On Tuesday, 13 March, SRH Hochschule Berlin and Peter-Lenné-Schule signed a collaboration agreement in order to further strengthen the training collaboration between the two institutions in the areas of renewable energies and environmental technologies.

Situated on the site of Peter-Lenné-Schule, the Berlin Energy Lab for Renewable Energies (BELARE) provides SRH’s Engineering students with the opportunity to get practical and technical experience. By signing the agreement, both institutions support the continuous education of young engineers for many years to come.

At the Energy Lab, the students are able to build small renewable energy installations; they can carry out tests and run analyses. In addition, there is a biogas unit, a solar thermal system and a constructed wetland for wastewater treatment in close vicinity to the lab, so the Engineering students get to know the construction and mechanics of these systems as well.

The biomass that is needed for the different plants is made on-site. The plants, the animal enclosure and the school canteen produce a total of 200 cubic metres of biogas per year which – as a result – can be used in a sustainable manner to generate power.
