WindNODE is a pilot project to get involved with and participate, in which we seek to share our passion for ‘energy and transition’. More than 20 visitor sites invite people to experience our smart energy system solutions during demonstrations and in showrooms. Additionally, we offer professionals as well as interested citizens various possibilities to actively participate in our activities and stay informed of our findings.
An invitation to watch and join in
In addition to technical development, WindNODE also relies on new forms of communication and mediation ideas to help shape the energy system of the future. Energy meets Art covers scenario studies for the future energy system as well as creative visualisation and broad stakeholder dialogue.
The ‘Energy meets Art’ project
‘Energy meets Art’ seeks to convey the results of WindNODE to professionals and citizens in an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary fashion. Technical findings and developments are difficult to convey in a disciplinary manner, especially when they concern complex energy policy and technical evolutions of many years, such as the energy transition. That is why ‘Energy meets Art’ takes the subjects and findings of WindNODE in the context of the energy transition and conveys them through artistic-communicative means.
The WINDMIND project in the Ecology and Environmental Planning bachelor programme of TU Berlin supports and participates in WindNODE, in which it deals intensively with the work objectives, scientific and technical developments, verifies the planning on site and deals with the ecological framework conditions of route planning (WiSe 2016/17) and, building on this, participates in the research questions of the consortium partners in an exemplary fashion (SoSe 2017).
The results of the project include posters created by the students about the energy transition, energy saving possibilities, the latest technology as well as ecological consequences, which were designed in the first semester of the study project. In the next semester, the students had to design a product for knowledge sharing (artwork): the individual groups should explain the energy transition using individual artistic means. The small groups designed a comic, a film and two different games.
