The Automobile – The Transition from Energy Guzzler to Power Supplier
Haus der Technik Technical Conference: Advanced Battery Technologies for Automobiles and Their Electric Power Grid Integration
Innovative automobile batteries are getting ready to leave the research labs to become components of modern vehicles. 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.
Following on from the successes of the events Advanced Battery Technologies for Automobiles and Their Electric Power Grid Integration and the internationally recognised Advanced Automotive Battery Conference (AABC) Haus der Technik and Advanced Automotive Batteries are pleased to announce a week-long programme of events, from 1-5 February 2010, Mainz Congress Centrum, on the theme of storage battery in automotives and their integration in the power grid. The programme consists of a national and an international conference as well as seminars, tutorials and a symposium.
The programme will provide you a comprehensive insight into the state of the art and current developments in the area of batteries for electric mobility.
For the second 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 Mainz, to discuss the technical innovation and visionary possibilities of utilizating this novel battery concept in vehicles and other applications.

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
