Goal: Climate-neutral, affordable housing

The cities of Stuttgart and Überlingen are collaborating together in the “Urban District 2050 – Solving Challenges Together” research project. The project goal is to remodel and develop two districts to create affordable, climate-neutral housing. The two municipalities are tackling the tasks in different ways. Their systematic approaches will enable, however, the experience gained by the respective demonstration districts to be also utilised by the other city.  more...

Electrostatic precipitator reduces emissions

Boilers powered by biogenic fuels emit more particulate matter than oil and gas boilers. In order to safely undercut the stricter limit values in all operating states, which have been in place since the beginning of 2015, researchers and plant manufacturers are working together to achieve the emission-reduced operation of biomass heating systems by means of secondary emission reduction measures.  more...

Passive House primary school in Halle undergoes monitoring

The ecclesiastical funding body wanted to use ecological building materials for the construction of a new primary school and, with the energy-optimised building, ensure a high degree of learning comfort with manageable operating costs. This resulted in the first Passive House school building to be constructed using a timber frame structure in Saxony- Anhalt. Multi-year monitoring and accompanying sociological research have verified both its energy efficiency and acceptance.  more...

Energy transition needs water electrolysis on the gigawatt scale

The generation of hydrogen by means of water electrolysis makes it possible to store renewably generated electricity. In a new study, experts assume that by 2050 Germany will require an installed plant capacity in the three-digit gigawatt range in order to achieve the German government's climate protection goals.  more...

Heat storage system replaces steam boiler

The world’s largest high-temperature latent heat storage system reached its future deployment site, the Wellesweiler cogeneration plant of STEAG New Energies GmbH in the Saarland, upon a flatbed truck mid-September. The system is intended to ensure permanent steam supply to an adjacent plant for the production of plastic sheeting. To date, operation of an additional heating boiler has been required under continual minimal load. This currently takes over short-term steam supply in the event of a malfunction of the power plant turbine until a steam boiler is initiated.  more...

New Energy Research Programme published

The German cabinet has passed the new, 7th “Innovations for Energy Transition” Energy Research Programme. The programme replaces its predecessor from 2011. Content-wise, the programme builds on the successes of recent years, sets new courses and defines focal points for research funding and innovation policy in the energy sector. For the years 2018-2022, the German Government is budgeting 6.4 billion euros for energy research.  more...

Hydrogen for the urban energy transition

A new, almost climate-neutral urban district is being built on the site of a former freight yard in Esslingen. Over a period of five years, scientists in the planned Neue Weststadt district are experimenting with an innovative energy supply concept with which electricity surpluses from intermittent renewable energies will be converted into hydrogen, stored and, if necessary, returned to the grid. The district will also serve as a real-world laboratory for the system-supportive coupling of the heating, cooling, electricity and mobility sectors.  more...

Cost-saving erection of large heat storage tanks

Scientists are testing a large overground hot water storage tank with lower production costs than comparable constructions thanks to its construction with prefabricated steel segments. The OBSERW research project is building on the experience gained from a large cool water storage tank that has been tried and tested in the district cooling network of the city of Chemnitz for more than ten years. For the first time, the construction principle, which is flexible in shape and size, could be transferred to hot water storage tanks that have to withstand high temperatures and temperature changes.  more...

New knowledge portal for solar heating networks

Large-scale solar thermal systems are being increasingly used in heating networks. The Steinbeis Research Institute Solites in collaboration with international partner organisations has created a newly designed information service on solar-supported heating networks at www.solare-waermenetze.de. At the heart of the web platform is a database that provides comprehensive technical and economic expert knowledge.  more...
