Microenergy International

ME Scientific Research

Scientific research activities at the intersection of energy and microfinance have always been central to MEI, which was created as a spin-off of the Technical University Berlin. In 2003, MEI initiated the Network of Competency for Energy and Development, in cooperation with the GTZ and the TU Berlin. This was followed by the “MicroEnergy Systems” Postgraduate School within the TU Berlin, which has resulted in 16 PhD projects since 2007, and by the MicroEnergy Research Group in 2011. Strong partnerships with research institutions in Germany and around the world enable MEI to base its work on the latest findings of scientific research and to ensure highest quality management for its services.

Thesis Supervision

MicroEnergy International offers a range of topics for students in bachelor or master programs who are willing to write their final thesis on a microenergy related issue.

With our international team, our broad knowledge and vast experience in the field, the MEI team is capable to fully support a scientific thesis. In addition to current projects, we endeavour to provide the opportunity to examine problems that are of high practical relevance.

MEI is always looking for innovative and motivated students with clever ideas. We usually recommend coming on board as an intern before starting the thesis. Feel free to contact us.
