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

Capacitors 10.12.2014

From power grid to fundamental research


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. ... 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

System concept 27.2.2015

Store PV-electricity economical

To use electricity generated by photovoltaic systems efficiently, an intelligent management of storage, on site consumption and feeding to the grid is necessary. Sunways, Akasol and Fraunhofer ISE partnered in order to develop such highly efficient PV-battery-system with intelligent communication and control. ... 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

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

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

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
