... 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 ...

Modelling renewable electricity supplies

The German federal government wants at least 80 per cent of the electricity production to be generated by renewables by 2050. Scientists at the Öko-Institut are therefore investigating how the growing proportion of renewable energies can be optimally integrated into the energy system using storage systems combined with grid and load management. The newly published BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled “Modelling power supply for 2050” (02/2016) presents possible basic structures for generating and distributing electricity for the years 2020, 2030 and 2050.  more...

Successfully implementing plus energy on housing estates

The future belongs to buildings that will produce more energy than they consume over the course of the year. This concept is known as energy-plus construction. A newly-built housing estate in Landshut, Bavaria, has been erected in accordance with this standard and then accompanied by scientific studies. The BINE Projektinfo brochure “Energy-plus concept tested on housing estate” (01/2016) presents the first results of the monitoring, the survey of residents and operational optimisation of the building technology.  more...

Transforming waste heat directly into electricity

With car engines, when heating homes and in industrial processes, part of the energy used is emitted as heat to the surroundings. Thermoelectric generators, however, are able to exploit this energy reservoir, which has previously been largely untapped. Across 24 pages, the new BINE Themeninfo brochure entitled "Thermoelectrics: power from waste heat" (I/2016) presents the technical principles, ongoing research projects and promising application areas.  more...

Heating and cooling with paraffin-water mixtures

[There is now an alternative to using water as a heat transfer medium in district heating and building systems: fluids consisting of a paraffin-water mixture. These offer theoretically higher heat capacities in a narrow temperature range than water. However, until now there has been a lack of calculations and experience in terms of their practical use. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Designing heat distribution with slurries” (18/2015) presents the results of basic measurements and simulations with the new heat transfer media. This now enables the mixtures to be better characterised and potential applications to be revealed.  more...
