... 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 ...

Second heat source optimises heat pump system

Air-to-water heat pumps utilise the outside air as a heat source. Because of their relatively low initial cost, they are currently enjoying growing popularity among owners of new-build or refurbished low-energy homes. Their disadvantage: They work with decreasing outside air temperatures, so when the heating demand increases there is also decreasing energy efficiency. The new BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled “Double heats better” (04/2018) presents a new system concept in which the building exhaust air is integrated into the system as a second heat source and the regulation of the heat distribution is optimised.  more...

Factory networks energy, buildings and production

In the “ETA Factory” demonstration project, the Technische Universität Darmstadt is researching concepts for multi-networked, industrial production facilities. In the concept, the scientists are integrating the energy flows, building envelope and industrial process chain across technologies and disciplines. The new BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled “Energy efficient model factory” (03/2018) presents the ETA Factory, which serves as a research object, demonstration facility and place of learning. By shifting the system boundaries between the machines and building, the researchers expect economically feasible energy savings of up to 40%.  more...

Hennigsdorf district heating network becomes real-life laboratory

Flexible heat networks provide a key component in making greater use of existing waste heat from industrial production and renewable heat in order to meet local needs. By 2020, the municipal public utility company in the Brandenburg town of Hennigsdorf is planning to rebuild its network and expand the share of climate-neutral heat generated in the district heating to 80%. The concept is presented in the new BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled "District heating network becomes heat hub" (02/2018). Key components include a multifunctional, large-capacity storage system, the integration of waste heat from a local steelworks as well as centralised and decentralised solar collector arrays. The research project is therefore serving as a real-life laboratory to ensure the renewable future of the heat supply.  more...

Checking power plant components in a more targeted manner

In future, conventional power plants based on coal and natural gas will have to work much more flexibly than was previously the case. One reason is that they work in close conjunction with power fed into the electricity grid from renewable energies, which means that the power plants run more often under partial load. This imposes greater stresses on the components and in a different manner than they were originally designed for. The new BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled "Material loading in flexible power plants" (01/2018) presents a new concept for investigating and evaluating power plants with varying loads. This enables operators and monitoring institutions to calculate the stability of components in terms of their damage more accurately and without compromising on safety.  more...
