The Automobile – The Transition from Energy Guzzler to Power Supplier

20.11.2008
Haus der Technik Technical Conference: Innovative Battery Technology for Automobiles and their Integration in the Electric Power Grid

Innovative automobile batteries are getting ready to leave the research labs to become components of modern vehicles. During the worldwide introduction of lithium-ion batteries in hybrid cars, the European automotive industry is preparing to take over global leadership.

New mild-hybrid concepts facilitate significant CO2 savings at a perspectively very favorable cost/benefit ratio. Even the well-established lead acid starter battery is undergoing massive innovation to meet the challenges of growing electrical facilitation, energy management, and stop/start functionality as a low-cost commodity.

In Europe, plug-in hybrids and battery-driven vehicles are increasingly viewed as interesting options to substitute crude oil as a primary energy source and at the same time, reduce CO2 emission.

Electro-mobility brings about challenges for electric power grid regulation, and also offers the opportunity of utilizing millions of traction batteries as a buffer for the stabilization of the grid, especially for the increasing share of renewable and fluctuating power generators as well.

Current developments, trends and perspectives will be presented during a 2-Day Technical Conference taking place on January 20th to 21st 2009, in the Haus der Technik in Essen. For the first time in the German-speaking region, this conference offers a forum to the developers of batteries, battery material, energy management and storage system solutions. An additional emphasis is also placed on networking these activities with the electric utilities.

This symposium will present and document the state-of-the-art in all fields found in the value-added chain, and at the same time, facilitate communication between industries and economic areas not interacting at this time. Renowned international scientists and engineers will be attending the conference in Essen, to discuss the technical innovation and visionary possibilities of utilizating this novel battery concept in vehicles and other applications.

Im Focus: DNA repair: a new letter in the cell alphabet

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
