Dr. Andreas Hantsch

Dr Andreas Hantsch is a mechanical engineer specialised in thermal systems and thermofluid dynamics and holds a doctorate in energy technology from the TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany. Research stays took him to the Institute of Energy Technology at KTH – Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, and to the Oxford Centre for Collaborative Applied Mathematics at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom. This was followed by years at the Institute of Air Handling and Refrigeration in Dresden and then at Cloud&Heat Technologies. Always dedicated to knowledge transfer, Dr Hantsch has taught courses at his alma mater and at the University of Applied Sciences in Dresden, Germany, has given over 40 publications and lectures, holds a patent and has supervised more than 30 student theses.

His projects have dealt with the processes inside and outside geothermal probes, production of hydrogen and biogas, solar thermal energy, the thermal processes for the production of silicon wafers, use of wind power for building ventilation, refrigeration and air conditioning systems, use of artificial intelligence for commissioning and process control of air conditioning systems, innovative data centre cooling by integrating data centres into their local circular economy and software development. As a member of DIN, Dr. Hantsch was actively involved as a sub-project leader and author in the development of the DIN EN 16798 series of standards, and there in particular in Parts 9, 13 and 15. Within the framework of the Open Compute Project, he promoted the international exchange on waste heat utilisation in data centres.

Now, as an independent consultant, Dr. Hantsch supports managers of SMEs in energy sustainability issues and gives lectures and workshops. At the eco2050 Institute for Sustainability he works as a sparring partner, consultant, lecturer and freelancer in customer and research projects.
