Considering the fact that industrial processes account for 19.1% of the German primary energy demand, it is necessary to raise awareness and promote energy efficiency technologies in this sector to reach the climate targets of the European Union. In the ETA research factory (Energy efficiency, Technology and Application center) in Darmstadt a holistic approach for an energy efficient factory is examined. The interdisciplinary research areas include several aspects of energy efficiency measures in the building, supply technology and production machines. This paper presents a training concept for transferring the multidisciplinary technical and methodical know-how about the proposed energy efficiency measures to industry and engineering students with an adapted didactical concept.
