Robust fuel cell heating unit developed

Acting as a mini-CHP plant, a fuel cell heating device can generate electricity and heat for single-family homes with high efficiency. Until now, it has been mainly economic reasons that have hampered the widespread market introduction of this technology. The BINE Projektinfo brochure entitled "Fuel cell generates electricity and heat for homes" (10/2016) presents a new device with a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) that has been developed to series production level. The developers have managed to reduce the manufacturing and installation costs and also improve the durability of the components.  more...

Solar houses scientifically evaluated

According to the current German Energy Savings Ordinance, new residential buildings are to require one quarter less primary energy. Solar houses with large collector surface areas meet this requirement. In these well-insulated buildings, solar energy systems cover at least 50 per cent of the heat demand. The BINE Projektinfo brochure 'Assessing solar houses in energy and economic terms' (09/2016) details the costs and energy requirements of the various solar house concepts.  more...

Passive house indoor pool saves heat and electricity

Many cities and municipalities operate indoor pools in antiquated buildings and with inefficient technology. This puts a burden on operating costs, and swimming pools are facing scrutiny in many places. Innovative building concepts are needed to ensure continued year-round swimming, lessons and enjoyment for families. BINE Projektinfo brochure 'Fun in a passive house pool' (08/2016) introduces a leisure pool in Bamberg. The swimming pool was scientifically accompanied and optimised in the first three years.  more...

Supporting renewables with coal-fired power plants

To enable more renewable energy to be fed into the grid, conventional power plants need to be more flexible. At the Jänschwalde power plant in Brandenburg, ignition and auxiliary burners with plasma ignition ensure that the fluctuating residual load can be better covered. The procedure is described in the BINE-Projektinfo brochure 07/2016, entitled "Dried lignite increases flexibility".  more...
