    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...
     

    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...

    National 5G Energy Hub project launched

    Last week, TU Dresden officially launched the long-term National 5G Energy Hub research project. This is aimed at making the future 5G mobile standard usable for applications in energy technology. Project partners are TU Dresden in cooperation with RWTH Aachen, Deutsche Telekom and Ericsson. In addition, the associated partners Techem, VDZ, E.ON and the city of Dresden are also involved.  more...
     

    Adjusting operation of biogas plants to power requirements

    Compensating supply fluctuations will prove vital in future power grids utilising high proportions of wind and solar energy. The demand driven generation of electricity from biogas can make a viable contribution in this regard. Researchers are developing new systems and software for biogas plants, integral in facilitating such flexible operational characteristics. This involves the precision monitoring and regulation of biogas production and conversion into electricity.  more...

    Mainz Energy Park

    Companies and scientists are investigating the storage of fluctuating wind energy in the form of hydrogen on a research plant located in the Mainz-Hechtsheim commercial zone. All key components from generation and storage to utilisation at an industrial scale are being looked at and interlinked with innovative technology components. The PtG plant (Power-to-Gas) at megawatt scale facilitates not only the chemical long-term storage of energy. It furthermore interconnects the electricity, heat and mobility sectors.  more...
     

    Solar water heater for ceramic granules

    The innovative CentRec radiation receiver has passed its first practical test at very high temperatures in the DLR’s solar tower in Jülich. The receiver uses ceramic particles as a heat storage medium. These are inexpensive, enable very high temperatures and can be handled with relatively little effort. The practical test at very high temperatures is an important step on the way to marketing this receiver technology.  more...

    Storing power and heat in the district

    Sustainable energy provision is to be developed for the urban district of Rüsdorfer Kamp in Heide. The QUARREE100 research project is investigating how the district could be fully supplied with local or regional renewable energy sources. One goal is to integrate the regionally generated wind power into the regional energy system in an economically efficient and system-serving way.  more...
