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: Elucidating the Atomic Mechanism of Superlubricity

The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.

One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
