    Smart Green Tower becomes an energy producer

    The Smart Green Tower is being built in the city of Freiburg. The 51-metre-high building will provide living, residential and working space. Depending on the solar radiation, a building envelope made of photovoltaic modules generates more energy via the photovoltaic system than can be consumed directly. In order to utilise the surplus electricity, the designers are using a flexible internal energy storage system with lithium-ion batteries.  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...

    From air base to residential neighbourhood

    A new residential district is being built on the site of a former air base in Oldenburg. In addition to new buildings, some of the former barracks buildings will be preserved and converted into residential buildings. A new infrastructure concept is planned that will couple the electricity, heating/cooling and electromobility sectors and integrate them into a cross-sectoral supply network. In addition, the project partners are developing a digital service platform to provide intelligent load and procurement management at the district level.  more...

    Intermediate storage of renewables

    How could more renewable energies be used that also stabilise the grid? To answer this question, researchers at the MEET Battery Research Centre at Münster University developed a new energy storage system based on dual-ion battery technology. Its long service life is promising for stationary applications.  more...
     

    The sun shines with the click of a mouse

    Synlight is the name of the world's largest artificial sun, which is situated in Jülich near Aachen. Its bundled light is 10,000 times stronger than the sun. With this energy, researchers want to test solar thermal components in order to produce hydrogen directly – without having to use electrolysis. Last week, the research facility was officially inaugurated.  more...
     

    "One million electric cars are feasible by 2025"

    Expensive, short ranges and long charging times: Today's batteries for electric vehicles have a negative image. However, the electric car is actually ready for series production. Well at least almost. In the BINE interview, Professor Martin Winter from the MEET Battery Research Center at Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster and the Helmholtz Institute Münster talks about the hurdles that still need to be overcome and how it will be possible to get considerably more electric vehicles onto the streets in the coming years.  more...
     

    Energy transition in transport

    Until now, the energy and transport sectors were considered separately from one another in the energy balance. The “Energy transition in transport” funding initiative by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) is entering into force to change that. It is intended to help bring the energy and transport sectors closer together and advance the technological possibilities in a cross-system approach encompassing a wide range of vehicles.  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...

    Hydrogen – storing energy in metals

    Metal hydrides store hydrogen and heat. Their use in thermochemical storage systems is hampered, however, by the material's poor heat conductivity. To increase the charging and discharging performance, researchers are pelletising the material together with graphite, which has a high thermal conductivity. With different metal hydrides they can cover the temperature range from room temperature up to 400 degrees Celsius.  more...

    Energy storage systems in 2030

    What role will functional storage systems play in the energy supply system of the future? Which system infrastructure can economically secure a reliable energy supply in 2030? And what measures must the government take so that this system infrastructure can prevail on the market? Scientists at the Research Center for Energy Economics (FfE) are trying to get to the bottom of these questions with an ongoing study. The results are now available.  more...
