The BINE Information Service ...

... provides the missing links between research and applications; we report on new materials, systems and components, innovative concepts and methods, and on the knowledge to be gained from testing new technologies in practice. We gather together expertise in one place and ensure that planners, investors and users have up-to-date knowledge – and all this in an independent, experienced and critical manner! We cover a broad range of topics: planning of energy-efficient new buildings; integration of heat recovery, insulation and ventilation technologies; optimisation of energy processes in industry and commercial businesses; use of renewable energy sources; development of new energy concepts ...

New zeolite can store more heat

Hydrophilic zeolites have almost ideal properties for use in thermal storage systems. They store the heat with hardly any losses, are environmentally friendly and cost-effective. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Thermal storage systems brought into shape” (07/2015) presents an optimised manufacturing process for a zeolite thermal storage system. It impresses with its greater energy density, power density and cycle resistance.  more...

Stable grid despite flexible feed-in

Grid frequency and voltage must remain stable for a reliable supply of consumers. However, wind energy and solar power systems provide electrical energy intermittently. How power supply can still function reliably is outlined in the BINE Projektinfo brochure ‘Stable grid with 100 per cent green electricity’ (06/2015).  more...

Wind energy - Shaking and rattling wind turbines

Manufacturers are offering ever larger and more powerful wind turbines for utilising wind power. Especially when these are installed offshore in the sea, extreme forces tug on the rotor blades, towers and foundations. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Testing towers and foundations” (05/2015) presents the Test Centre for Support Structures in Hanover. Here large-scale models and components are subjected to an advance time-lapse endurance test. The results will make it easier in future to design the supporting structures of wind turbines in accordance with needs.  more...

Innovative local heating solution in Ludwigsburg

Consolidating heating networks in existing urban districts while also connecting areas with a low heat density is particularly ambitious from an economic point of view. The town of Ludwigsburg is taking exactly this route. Here, an existing heating network is being expanded and in future will supply both the district of Sonnenberg and the Grünbühl housing estate, which is badly in need of refurbishment. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled “Local heating network combines new-build schemes with existing district” (04/2015) presents the district energy concept with its two components – energy-optimised construction and efficient heating provision. Based on the example of Ludwigsburg, methods and tools have been developed and tested that can be transferred to other cities with a comparable structure.  more...
