Wind to hydrogen

For the long-term storage of large amounts of electrical energy, it makes sense to use material storage systems, such as hydrogen or methane, after a chemical conversion. These can be used for reconversion or to support the public gas supply. In addition, the gases are also valuable elements for the chemical industry.

Study 31.3.2016

Energy Storage Systems in 2030

Which system infrastructure is most economic for the supply system? What will be the storage requirement in 2030? These questions addressed by scientists in the Merit Order study. For this purpose they recorded the characteristic values of possible storage technologies and distinguished them in regional terms. ... more

PEM electrolysis 10.11.2015

Reducing the costs with new materials

In the project Ekolyser alliance partners to develop scientific and industrial cost sustainable materials for the polymer electrolyte membrane electrolysis. The aim of the research project is the PEM electrolysis can perform effectively for use in mass markets by 2020. ... more

Lithium combustion 30.9.2015

Lithium, the renewable coal

Lithium can be used for chemically storing electricity as part of a cycle in which it is first generated electrochemically using surplus electricity and then combusted as required in a power plant-compatible process to release the energy again. In the “LiKohle” project, researchers are investigating and assessing the possible reaction processes, for example in a carbon dioxide or nitrogen atmosphere. Valuable chemical raw materials can be generated as a by-product of the energy conversion. ... more

Power-to-Gas 28.5.2015

100 % renewable energy through Power-to-Gas

The research network "100% EE durch PtG" analyses the potential and applicability of the Power-to-Gas (PtG) process in the German Energiewende. A research consortium studied the potential and suitability of PtG. The researchers test how a 100 percent supply can actually look like from renewable energies and what requirements arise for a future energy supply system, including the PtG technology study. ... more

Analysis 9.1.2015

Balancing inflexible electricity generation

In the “Multi-Grid Storage” research project, researchers are analysing measures for balancing out inflexible electricity generation by linking the electricity, gas and heating supplies. For instance, it is intended to develop the storage and balancing measures required in Germany, identify useful interactions and develop criteria for their systematic optimisation. ... more

Study Plan-DelyKaD 31.3.2014

Hydrogen fuel production by electrolysis

In a study, scientists are determining the theoretical prerequisites for testing an integrated overall system at an industrially relevant scale. For the “electricity – hydrogen – large-scale storage – usage” system, principles are being developed that are intended to identify as many risks as possible for the implementation. ... more
