Flexible turbomachines stabilise the power grid

In future, conventional power plants will need to become more flexible in order to compensate for the fluctuating power generation by renewables. This requires modified gas and steam turbines. These will have to work more frequently under partial load, with more start-up and shut-down cycles and function with changing fuels. AG Turbo has compiled the research and development objectives for these new framework conditions in the ECOFLEX-turbo programme.  more...

Servers heat office buildings

The Züblin construction group set high standards for the extension of their headquarters: in terms of construction, energy efficiency and sustainability. In operation, the energy consumed for heating and cooling is below the calculated values. The high-performance data processing centre housed in the building provides enough thermal energy to heat the building. The thermal comfort leads to a high level of satisfaction of the occupants. Most of the energy – far more than planned – is consumed by artificial light.  more...

Electromobility - What drives us now and in the future

Highly efficient, low-noise and zero-emission: the electric powertrain offers dynamic mobility, can integrate renewable energies and makes the transport sector less dependent on crude oil as an energy source. However, which technology will dominate electric vehicles of the future: batteries or fuel cells? An either-or decision is not necessary.  more...

Cooling with solar heat

The cooling or air conditioning of buildings with solar heat has a particular appeal because the heat demand and supply are usually consistent with each another. Cold stores in southern climates and many process refrigeration systems also require considerable energy when the sun shines intensely. The use of solar cooling systems instead of electric chillers also eases the grid, particularly at peak load times.  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...
