Education: Universities are returning to online teaching to save energy

In order to save energy, four universities in Rhineland-Palatinate are temporarily suspending their face-to-face operations and returning to online teaching. The Koblenz University of Applied Sciences, the University and the University of Applied Sciences in Trier and the TH Bingen are taking this step, according to a survey by the German Press Agency.

The Koblenz University of Applied Sciences has the longest "energy lockdown". "In order to achieve the 15 percent energy savings expected by public institutions, we will be offering the lectures as purely online lectures from December 4, 2022 to January 8, 2023," the university announced on its website.

In Trier, both the university and the college are switching to digital teaching from December 19 to January 6. The university library will remain open during these two weeks, however, explained the University of Trier. At Trier University of Applied Sciences, digital teaching is also to replace face-to-face teaching between February 16 and 21.

There is also a longer Christmas break to save energy at the Technical University of Bingen. "All university buildings will not be heated from December 19th to January 8th," the university decided. During this time, teaching will take place online.

The Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, the University of Koblenz-Landau, the University of Applied Sciences in Worms and the Technical University of Kaiserslautern want to stick to on-site operations.
