The internationally renowned TU Berlin is located in Germany’s capital city at the heart of Europe. TU Berlin strives to promote the accumulation of knowledge and to facilitate technological progress by adhering to the fundamental principles of excellence and quality. Strong regional, national and international networking with partners in science and industry is an important aspect in all these endeavors. The research and teaching endeavors are characterized by a broad spectrum of academic disciplines, ranging from engineering science to natural science, planning science and economics, as well as the humanities and social sciences. TU Berlin combines engineering with economics and business, e.g. in studying the economic effects of future electricity grids and electric mobility. Prof. Christian von Hirschhausen, Industrial Engineer with a focus on energy, heads the Workgroup for Infrastructure Policy (WIP) that focuses on techno-economic modelling of infrastructure systems (most notably energy), but also works on regulation, financing, and organization of energy infrastructure.
