Storage of solar energy and wind power in metal powder

Storage of solar energy and wind power in metal powder

Hydrogen researchers are involved in a large European project on hydrogen storage. The goal is to develop a novel prototype tank that will store at least 50 kilograms of hydrogen in a minimum space. The European Union is funding the project with €2 million in the frame of the "Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking - FCH JU". Some €150,000 are earmarked for the Helmholtz researchers.

Vestas leads break-away group of big four turbine makers

Developers commissioned a little over 45GW of onshore wind turbines globally in 2018 compared with 47GW a year earlier. Just four manufacturers accounted for more than half, or 57%, of the machines deployed: Denmark's Vestas, China's Goldwind, GE Renewable Energy of the US and Spain's Siemens Gamesa.

Innovation paves way for next stage of global energy transformation

Innovation paves way for next stage of global energy transformation

Countries at the forefront of the energy transformation are getting more than a third of their energy from variable renewables like solar and wind, and they're doing it in a cost-effective manner. By making use of innovative solutions that allow to integrate a higher share of renewables into power systems, innovation holds the key to a cost-effective global energy transformation.

To conserve energy, AI clears up cloudy forecasts

To conserve energy, AI clears up cloudy forecasts

A new approach predicts the accuracy of the weather forecast using a machine learning model trained with years' worth of data on forecasts and actual weather conditions. Combined with a mathematical model that considers building characteristics including the size and shape of rooms, the construction materials, the location of sensors and the position of windows.

Unleashing perovskites' potential for solar cells

Researchers have been able to decipher a key aspect of the behavior of perovskites made with different formulations: With certain additives there is a kind of "sweet spot" where greater amounts will enhance performance and beyond which further amounts begin to degrade it.
