Flagship of the funding initiative
Batteries in the distribution grid
The projects range from batteries connected to photovoltaic systems in households to electricity storage facilities capable of storing megawatts of power which can be used by energy supply companies. Key research topics include electrical or electrochemical systems for storing electrical energy, such as batteries, redox flow or double-layer capacitors, and mechanical storage systems, such as compressed air storage, pumped storage power plants or flywheels. Other projects being funded include new storage concepts and research into connecting decentralized storage systems.
Supercapacitors are becoming one of the most important electrochemical storage devoces. The IES project aim to develop innovatice supercapacitors having high energy and containing new and safe components, able to work in a broad range of temperatures. ...
the ENREKON project, which stands for the “Development of resource-efficient
condensers for short-term energy storage”, researchers are synthesising ionic
liquids and transition metal oxides. Following this, a physical and structural analysis will be performed. Important capacitor-specific characteristics will be determined with dielectric spectroscopy over a wide temperature- and frequency range. ...
