Making metallic materials more climate-friendly

Six percent of global CO2 emissions—4.4. billion tonnes per year—are currently produced by the steel and aluminum industry. In an overview article for the journal Nature, Dierk Raabe, Director at the Max-Planck-Institut ...

The energy system of the future and Power-to-X

In a joint research project of five Swiss competence centres for energy research, scientists of the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI and colleagues have prepared a white paper on "Power-to-X" for consideration by the Swiss Federal ...

An affordable way to store clean energy

Renewable energy sources can fluctuate in the amount of power they are able to provide—which is why batteries are used to temporarily store the energy. The problem with lithium ion batteries is their short service life, ...

Dynamic energy management system for SMBs

Solar power, wind power and the lot – the growing use of renewable energy sources is resulting in substantial fluctuations in energy production. Fraunhofer researchers have now made it possible to design industrial processes ...

Artificial intelligence improves power transmission

To integrate volatile renewable sources into the energy supply, capacities of the power grid have to be increased. The need for new lines can be reduced by better utilization of existing lines as a function of weather conditions. ...
