Disruptive process with high savings potential
Ammonia from green hydrogen is an energy carrier with high economic potential that can be used as a chemical feedstock, as marine fuel or for stationary power generation. In the future, it will be imported on a large scale from regions with high solar and wind resources. In the project "PICASO" ...
Process Optimization with the Digital Twin
Methanol plays an important role for industry as a commodity chemical and is presently considered one of the key energy carriers in the rising hydrogen economy. However, conventional methanol production from coal and natural gas generates large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions. With the ...
Plug and Play is a global innovation platform that aims to build an ecosystem where game-changing startups meet the world’s leading corporations
Plug and Play Tech Center announced a new initiative focused on hydrogen by launching the H2 Startup Accelerator program. It’s one of the world’s first hydrogen-centric startup accelerator programs that will initially be operated out of Hamburg with support of Fraunhofer ISE and Fraunhofer ...
Time and spatially resolved insight into the reactor
The conversion of renewable power into chemical energy sources through so-called Power-to-X processes is taking on an increasingly important role in Germany’s energy transition. As long-term, easy-to-transport, high-capacity energy sources, PtX maximize the potential of renewable energy and ...
Around ten thousand tons of silicon in discarded photovoltaic modules end up on the recycling market annually in Germany. This figure will rise to several hundred thousand tons per year by 2029. Currently, the aluminum, glass and copper of the discarded modules are reprocessed, however, the ...
In the field of photovoltaics, intensive research is being carried out to continually improve solar cell efficiency. Increasingly, the focus is on tandem photovoltaics, in which high-performance solar cell materials are brought together in various combinations in order to use the solar spectrum ...
Dynamic Operation of a Miniplant at Fraunhofer ISE
Methanol will gain importance as a chemical energy carrier in the course of the energy transformation. As part of the "Power-to-Methanol – Green Methanol" project, the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE successfully commissioned a miniplant for methanol synthesis –the production of ...
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE have once again succeeded in raising the efficiency value of monolithic triple-junction solar cells made of silicon and III-V semiconductor materials. Using a combination of multiple absorber materials, these multi-junction ...
Silicon solar cells dominate the photovoltaic market today but the technology approaches the theoretical maximum efficiency that can be achieved with silicon as the only absorber material. Tandem solar cells, on the other hand, combine several absorber materials, enabling a better energetic use ...
Concentrator Photovoltaics (CPV) has by far achieved the highest efficiency for the conversion of sunlight into electricity. The basis for this latest achievement lies in the special multi-junction solar cells as well as the perfect interplay between the cell and the module optics. In the ...
