It was finally time! From March 3rd till March 13th, they held the annual motor show in Geneva with all the sexiest cars you can imagine! It needed to be done, so I rushed to Switzerland to be part of this exhibition and drool all over the new models. You are probably asking, “But cars cause smog in cities and global warming. Why would you go see something that will basically cause the end of humanity?” Ok, that was a bit extreme, but of course I had to go see the new Tesla Model X and the hydrogen and hybrid cars. The age of innovative cars is upon us! And of course, Pagani, Lotus and Aston Martin are simply awesome. We at IBARE 14 sure love us some sexy cars that run on green fuel.
Mehr als 150 Jahre haben Bergbau und Kohleproduktion die Lausitz geprägt und der Region ein industrielles Gesicht gegeben. Lange Zeit bedeuteten die Werkshallen der verschiedenen Industrien, die sich hier rund um die Kohle ansiedelten, für die Menschen mehr als nur Lohn und Brot.
In June, it was time for the annual solar industry exhibition. Many of us from the Renewable Energies class of 2014 were really excited to go there and see the new technological progress it had to offer. We took the 8 hour long bus ride because our wallets did not allow flight tickets, but it did not stop us from going there anyway. Once in Munich, we were stunned by the large number of companies at the exhibition. There were over a thousand exhibitors waiting to show off their solar panels or battery storage systems. Heliatek, Tesla Motors, SMA, Pheasun, Qcells, REC, and the list continues. To cover a lot of ground, we decided to all split up, walk around, talk to different people, ask questions, gather information and meet up by bumping into each other.
