Thermal storage systems brought into shape

Thermal storage systems that utilise zeolite are still very rare. In a research project, scientists have investigated aluminosilicates for their practical use in thermal storage systems. They have succeeded in significantly improving the energy density, cycle resistance and thermal performance. The research has led to the development of a thermochemical storage system for a CHP power plant.  more...

Stable grid with 100 per cent green electricity

In a power grid, the energy provided must always be equal to the power demanded. Only then can frequency and voltage remain stable. Ensuring this is the task of grid operators. But when volatile — meaning not arbitrarily adjustable — energy sources are the main sources of electrical energy, grid operators face a challenge.  more...

Sustainable refurbishment of museums

There are more than 7,000 museums in Germany. However, many museum buildings are now in need of refurbishment and their systems technology is outdated. At the same time, the financial position of cities and municipalities has become so acute that public amenities, such as swimming pools and libraries, are being forced to close. There is therefore a move towards transforming museums into independently operated enterprises that have to bear at least part of the maintenance, upkeep and utility costs for their buildings themselves.  more...

Researching in the global network

International research collaborations are becoming increasingly important. Germany is involved in a variety of ways in international energy research. An important pillar in this regard is its involvement in the International Energy Agency (IEA). Germany is a founding member of this organisation. An IEA field of activity particularly relevant to energy research is its energy technology network.  more...

Schools plug into the sun

Photovoltaic systems in schools help save energy and enhance classroom teaching. They shape a school's image and indicate that energy supply is a future-focused subject. Grants are available to schools wanting to install photovoltaic panels.  more...

Schoolchildren are saving energy

At many schools they already exist: schoolchildren as energy detectives, energy managers or energy teams. They track down energy leaks, take the initiative, assume responsibility and ultimately know a great deal about saving energy. Their commitment is often also financially rewarding for their school.  more...
