The award promotes energy efficiency in refrigeration, air conditioning and environmental technology
On June 13, 2018, the Peter Huber Prize of the Valerius Füner Foundation was awarded at Achema.
As the best graduates from the years 2016 and 2017, the winners this year were Joseph Michel and Florian Theobald. Michel received the award for his Master's thesis on the optimisation and simulation of combined heat and power plants. Theobald was honoured for his work developing new models to more accurately calculate heat transfer.
In future, the development of temperature control units could benefit from this basic research.
In a 2015 partnership with the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, Peter Huber Kaltemaschinenbau introduced the Peter Huber Prize to recognise and reward the achievments of students studying mechanical engineering with a focus on energy efficiency in refrigeration, air conditioning and environmental technology.
