Latent heat storage 1.10.2015

Waste heat used for production of precast concrete

Researchers develop new components in the project ENBELAT. To use the hydration heat they provide concrete precast molds with a heat recovery and save the heat in a latent heat storage. This increases the quality and helps the energy consumption to be reduced 45 percent. ... 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

Analysis 24.9.2015

Storages in grid-connected PV systems

Photovoltaik storages can specifically relieve the grids and reduce the net expansion to a necessary measure. Which use PV storages have, depends on the operating method of the storage and the grid. First results gives the analysis "PV Benefit". .

Stationary Energy Storage Systems 3.9.2015

Zinc-air batteries for the grid

Until now, zinc-air batteries have mostly been used as small disposable batteries, for example for hearing aids. The electrochemical reaction of zinc with atmospheric oxygen offers, however, considerable potential for building rechargeable storage systems with a high energy density for large energy volumes. Until now it has not been possible to implement it technically. In the “ZnPLUS” project, scientists want to utilise new concepts and components to develop an economic zinc-air energy storage system in the megawatt range. ... more

Accumulator 31.8.2015

Magnesium sulfide - an alternative to lithium

Batteries should demonstrate a high energy density, they should be inexpensive and should hold many memory cycles. Scientists develop such batteries in the project MASAK. They pursue a new concept: in contrast to the known magnesium - systems not magnesium cation are used for charge transfer, but sulfide anion. ... more

SmartRegion Pellworm 26.8.2015

Hybride storage system based on renewables

How electrical storage systems optimally work together with renewable energies is being investigated by researchers of the project “SmartRegion Pellworm”. To this end, they test the use of efficient storage systems. The island Pellworm could reduce the supply of energy from the mainland by up to 90 percent by now. ... 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
