6th Munich Cleantech Conference: Energy Transition Innovations

13.09.2012
Enterprises, start-ups, investors and scientists from across the cleantech industry will meet in Munich on November 22, 2012 for the 6th Munich Cleantech Conference. This year, Germany's most important cleantech platform focuses on innovations in energy transition, specifically in energy efficiency, storage and management.

More than 1,000 participants have participated in the successful conference series, with discussions featuring over 120 experts from research institution - including the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden, Frauenhofer Institute, Hasso Plattner Institute, Bloomberg - representatives from Robert Bosch, Cisco, Schott Solar, Evonik, Festo, Suntech, RWE, T-Systems, Autodesk, Siemens, SIC Processing, dena, Osram, SAP, Linde, Entelio, as well as venture capital investors such as Zouk Capital, Climate Change Capital and the European Investment Bank.

This year, the Munich Cleantech Conference will introduce the Munich Cleantech Conference Venture Award. Young, ambitious companies with an innovative, market-ready solution and a convincing, highly-scalable business model can register for this award until October 15, at www.munich-cleantech-conference.eu.

The most innovative company will be selected by a jury of experts including Prof. Eicke Weber, Head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy; Dr. Andreas Breuer, Head of New Technologies at RWE Germany AG; Dr. Alois Flatz, Partner of Zouk Capital LLP; Dr. Volker Nadenau, Member of the Executive Board of Solar Energy AG and Gabriele Riedmann de Trinidad SVP Strategic Market Energy at Deutsche Telekom. More information at: MCC-Venture-Award and http://www.cleanenergy-project.de/mcc-venture-award.

Stronger than ever, the conference will address the entire European cleantech community. Focus topics will include smart buildings and energy efficiency innovations as well as hydrogen technology for energy storage. The wider field of energy management, with its great variety of IT solutions, will offer many entrepreneurial opportunities for start-ups.

Im Focus: Basel Physicists Develop Efficient Method of Signal Transmission from Nanocomponents

Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal “Nature Communications” together with their colleagues from ETH Zurich.

Electronic components are becoming smaller and smaller. Components measuring just a few nanometers – the size of around ten atoms – are already being produced...

Im Focus: IoT-based Advanced Automobile Parking Navigation System

Development and implementation of an advanced automobile parking navigation platform for parking services

To fulfill the requirements of the industry, PolyU researchers developed the Advanced Automobile Parking Navigation Platform, which includes smart devices,...

Im Focus: First electrical car ferry in the world in operation in Norway now

  • Siemens delivers electric propulsion system and charging stations with lithium-ion batteries charged from hydro power
  • Ferry only uses 150 kilowatt hours (kWh) per route and reduces cost of fuel by 60 percent
  • Milestone on the road to operating emission-free ferries

The world's first electrical car and passenger ferry powered by batteries has entered service in Norway. The ferry only uses 150 kWh per route, which...

Im Focus: Into the ice – RV Polarstern opens the arctic season by setting course for Spitsbergen

On Tuesday, 19 May 2015 the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its home port in Bremerhaven, setting a course for the Arctic. Led by Dr Ilka Peeken from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) a team of 53 researchers from 11 countries will investigate the effects of climate change in the Arctic, from the surface ice floes down to the seafloor.

RV Polarstern will enter the sea-ice zone north of Spitsbergen. Covering two shallow regions on their way to deeper waters, the scientists on board will focus...

Im Focus: Gel filled with nanosponges cleans up MRSA infections

Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego developed a gel filled with toxin-absorbing nanosponges that could lead to an effective treatment for skin and wound infections caused by MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), an antibiotic-resistant bacteria. This "nanosponge-hydrogel" minimized the growth of skin lesions on mice infected with MRSA - without the use of antibiotics. The researchers recently published their findings online in Advanced Materials.

To make the nanosponge-hydrogel, the team mixed nanosponges, which are nanoparticles that absorb dangerous toxins produced by MRSA, E. coli and other...
