Salthydrates 14.3.2016

Cooling of buildings using new salthydrates

In the project PC-Cools_V two new phase change materials (PCM) on a salthydrate basis with a narrow melting range around 21°C and around 15°C are developed. The latter was intended for the implementation in central cold storages whereas the PCM melting at 21°C was designed for a decentral, room integrated storage application, especially cooling ceilings. ... more

Industrial waste heat utilisation 12.9.2017

Foundry using waste heat of the furnace

In energy-intensive industries, e.g. foundry industry or cement industry, the use of waste heat for example as process or space heating energy reduces the consumption of primary energy.  In the Project “IAST” researchers are testing an energy storage system for discontinuous industrial waste heat of a furnace at a foundry. The implementation and commissioning is expected to start at the end of 2014. ... more

Grid management 7.11.2016

Management of decentralised PV-battery systems

Net parity of photovoltaic electricity with the price for domestic consumers makes on-site consumption of locally generated electricity increasingly interesting. Efficient and long-life batteries will allow storage to increase on-site consumption in future. In the ”Net-PV“ project, researchers are investigated the opportunities and benefits of different operating strategies for solar battery systems and the combination of business models. ... more

PCM storage 12.4.2017

Cheaper slurries for cooling processes

In order to reduce the cost of PCM storages, scientists develop new slurries and materials for cold storages. The aim of the project KOLAN is to develop an emulsion with a very high heat capacity. At a temperature difference of 6 Kelvin it should store about four times more heat than water. ... more
