Solar power also available at night

If the superheated steam for the turbines is already generated in the collector, this is referred to as direct solar steam generation. If this is utilised, solar thermal power plants work particularly efficiently. Combined with a new storage solution, they can also deliver electricity at night and at times with low solar irradiation. The newly published BINE-Projektinfo brochure 11/2017, entitled “Night-time electricity from solar power plants”, presents the system consisting of latent heat and cascade storage units.  more...

Geothermal power plant starts commercial operation

In central Europe, 5% of the natural geothermal heat reserves can be found in thermal water, but 95% is contained in deep rock. New, complex concepts and technologies are required to enable the heat in the rock to be utilised. Scientists are therefore working together in a Franco-German cooperation project in Soultz-sous-Forêts. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled “German-French geothermal power plant completed” (10/2017) focuses on the newly constructed power plant. In addition to the new power plant, scientific investigations are continuing on the geothermal reservoir. The research include aspects such as corrosion and deposits, geothermal pumps and the handling of natural radionuclides.  more...

Gas engine heat pump heats residential complex in Munich

The intention was to energy efficiently renovate a residential complex from the post-war period in the Munich district of Haidhausen and provide it with a new, CO2-neutral energy concept. The core of the heating system comprises a gas engine heat pump that utilises groundwater as the heat source. The new BINE-Projektinfo brochure "Gas engine heat pump supplies renovated residential complex" (09/2017) presents the prototype for the heat pump, the concept for the heating system, a method for providing energy-efficient legionella protection and the renovation project as a whole. A mass-produced gas engine heat pump suitable for the central European market did not exist when the planning was being carried out.  more...

Cottbus school refurbished to become passive house

Serious structural damage and the ravages of time made it unavoidable: Max Steenbeck Secondary School in Cottbus needed a new building. The choice fell on an existing system-built school, which first of all needed, however, to undergo complete renovation. For this reason, the City of Cottbus tested four variants in advance and opted for the Passive House standard. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure "School: Refurbished from Plattenbau to Passive House" (08/2017) presents the renovated building and the scientific monitoring.The new school building saves 80% of the heating energy compared to its state before it was renovated.  more...
