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 ...

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...

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...
