On October 18-19, 2012, the International Conference on Highlights and Trends in Solar Energy, Solar Summit Freiburg, will be held at the “Konzerthaus” conference center in Freiburg.
The conference will provide an overview of solar energy conversion technologies. In addition to the latest research and development, discussions will also cover current market and political trends. This year, the focus of the conference is sustainable urban development, under the headline “The Future Sustainable City”.
The “Solar Summit Freiburg 2012” program is divided into the following subjects: Intelligent transformation of our energy supply, the focus subject “The Future Sustainable City” and trends in solar technology, such as heating and cooling, storage technologies and photovoltaics. Renowned international speakers and experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE will present the topics and discuss them with participants.
“Once again, we are looking forward to lively discussions and networking with participants from a variety of fields, such as industry and politics, research and technology, as well as investors, banks and the media,” says Prof. Eicke R. Weber, scientific chair of the conference and Director of Fraunhofer ISE.
“The Solar Summit is an excellent platform which allows all the sectors involved in the energy revolution to carry out the vital task of sharing their knowledge and ideas; Fraunhofer ISE’s portfolio covers a wide range of these subjects.”
The Solar Summit Freiburg conferences are hosted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, supported by FWTM and Messe München, and organised by PSE AG from Freiburg. For more information please visit http://www.solar-summit-2012.org

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.
As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...
When an earthquake hits, the faster first responders can get to an impacted area, the more likely infrastructure--and lives--can be saved.
The Atlantic overturning is one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards. Also known as the Gulf Stream system, it is responsible for the mild climate in northwestern Europe.
Scientists now found evidence for a slowdown of the overturning – multiple lines of observation suggest that in recent decades, the current system has been...
Because they are regularly subjected to heavy vehicle traffic, emissions, moisture and salt, above- and underground parking garages, as well as bridges, frequently experience large areas of corrosion. Most inspection systems to date have only been capable of inspecting smaller surface areas.
From April 13 to April 17 at the Hannover Messe (hall 2, exhibit booth C16), engineers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP will be...
