  • Power to Gas and Hydrogen Supply Chains – Techno-Economic Assessments of Hydrogen Infrastructure


    The efficient and economically viable utilization of green hydrogen in various sectors requires a comprehensive understanding of all individual elements in the hydrogen supply chain. In our techno-economic analyses, we develop and evaluate tailor-made solutions for the production of clean hydrogen from renewable energy, its efficient storage and demand-oriented distribution

  • Surface Analysis of Materials – X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (HT-NAP-XPS)


    The innovative High Temperature Near-Ambient Pressure X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (HT-NAP-XPS) brings conventional XPS to a new dimension of surface science. Functionalized surfaces can be investigated at pressures up to 25 mbar and temperatures up to 1 000 °C allowing in situ studies of reaction mechanisms and their intermediate stages – especially attractive for materials used in hydrogen technologies

  • Stationäre Batteriespeicher – Stabilität und Flexibilität im Energiesystem


    Für eine sichere und zuverlässige Stromversorgung, basierend auf 100% erneuerbaren Energien, sind dezentrale und zentrale stationäre Batteriespeicher in großem Umfang notwendig. Eine wesentliche Aufgabe dieser Speicher ist, das Stromnetz angesichts fluktuierender Einspeisung von Photovoltaik (PV) und Wind, stabil und ausfallsicher zu halten. Zudem speichern sie überschüssigen Strom ein und stellen ihn bedarfsgerecht zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt zur Verfügung.

  • Electrical Energy Storage


    Fraunhofer ISE has made the optimization of battery systems across the whole value chain a priority, starting from the material and cell through the complete system and up to the integration. We offer extensive R&D services for battery materials, cells, modules and systems.

    For a secure and reliable power supply based on 100% renewable energy sources, decentralized and centralized stationary battery storage systems are needed on a large scale. A key task of these storage systems is to keep the power grid stable and fail-safe in the face of fluctuating feed-in from photovoltaics (PV) and wind. They also provide surplus electricity storage for demand-optimized use at a later time.

    Climate protection and energy security are moving more and more into the center of societal awareness and behavior. The ‘net-zero emissions’ targets by mid-century, which are ratified or under discussion by nearly 200 countries define a paradigm shift towards the limitation of the global temperature. Hydro-gen and its derivatives will be the backbone of a sustainable global energy trading system since it can store vast amounts of energy over long periods of time, can be transported in ships or pipelines and can be used in all energy consuming sectors as a replacement of fossil-based energy carriers. Furthermore, hydrogen is the basic molecule used in generating renewable synthetic fuels or chemicals. Linking the energy economy with the zero-emission mobility, vehicles powered by hydrogen in fuel cells or by synthetic fuels offer attractive filling times and driving ranges along with a known infrastructure and refueling system, familiar to that of fossil fuels.
