About the DLR Energy Blog

DLR Energy Blog

What kind of energy will we be using in future? Lots of people ask themselves this question, and many scientists are conducting research and working on finding ingenious solutions. To do justice to the significance of this subject, the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has dedicated the Year of Science 2010 to the Future of Energy.

In this blog, we will ask a question about energy once a week, and science journalist Jan Oliver Löfken will answer it for us. He will also be pleased to answer any queries you may have about energy, so please send your questions by email.

We also want to keep you informed through this blog about the DLR scientists who are carrying out research in this field. How do they see the future, and what is the prevailing mood at international conferences? This blog is intended to provide insights.

The DLR EnergyBlog is maintained by Dorothee Bürkle and Jan Oliver Löfken.
