... 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 ...

Generating needs-led electricity with biogas plants

The share of renewable energy sources in electricity production is to be increased. However, the supply of wind and solar energy varies. Conversion of biogas into electricity offers an opportunity to compensate for such fluctuations through an adapted production. The prerequisite for this is that there is a sufficient and free storage capacity available in the systems at all times. The new BINE Projektinfo “Adjusting operation of biogas plants to power requirements” (07/2018) presents improved systems for filling level measurements and forecasts, and summarises recommendations for plant operation.  more...

Selecting ideal heat sources for heat pumps

The potential offered by improving the energy efficiency of heat pump systems is far from exhausted. The new BINE Projektinfo “Which heat sources are optimal for heat pumps” (06/2018) presents two such approaches. Researchers at the Institute for Solar Energy Research in Emmerthal have developed a concept with which the surface area requirement of geothermal heat collectors can be reduced. The Institute for Building Services and Energy Design at TU Braunschweig has developed a new information and design tool for the early planning phase. It supports planners in selecting the ideal solution for a specific project from the wide range of available heat sources and heat exchangers.  more...

Converting wind power for storage purposes

In the first half of 2018, wind farms in Germany fed around 55 billion kWh into the power grid. 7 billion more than in the same period last year. Scientists are working to improve conversion and storage technologies to temporarily store surplus wind power. The current BINE Projektinfo “Energiepark Mainz” (05/2018) presents a promising process by way of the world's largest Power-to-Gas research facility. Electrolytic hydrogen is produced using wind power, and is then stored and fed into the natural gas network. The aim is to test the processes and novel components on an industrial scale.  more...

Buildings relieve power grids

A key approach for ensuring a successful energy transition is sector coupling. Here separate areas of the energy system are linked and coordinated. Buildings and districts offer many opportunities for greater collaboration with the electricity grid. The new BINE-Themeninfo brochure entitled “Grid-supportive buildings and districts” (I/2018) presents concepts for grid-responsive buildings as well as control and operational management strategies that meet the necessary flexibility and user requirements. The Themeninfo brochure also provides an insight into current debates and research.  more...
