Energy Solution Center (EnSoC). The Energy Solution Center supports application-oriented energy research in the field of high-performance computing. Funded by KIT and several partners from industry, EnSoC represents a high-performance network bundling competences in energy economy, energy technology, IT, and solution methods. An example of a current EnSoC project, smart charge management for electric vehicles in tomorrow's electricity grid, will be presented.
KIC InnoEnergy. The KIC InnoEnergy European consortium is establishing a sustainable, safe, and carbon-minimized energy supply system in Europe. The network is aimed at closing the innovation gap and strengthening Europe's innovative capacity. KIC InnoEnergy is a network of 28 top companies, universities, research institutions, and business schools. Their close networking is planned to result in a more rapid development and commercialization of new energy products. Entrepreneurs will find professional support on the InnoEnergy HighwayTM. The European incubator focuses on sustainable energy and is characterized by a holistic approach.
Other Topics Presented by KIT at the 2012 Hannover Messe:
bioliq (Hall 27, Stand H70). At an exhibition of the Renewable Energies Forum, KIT will present its bioliq process for the production of customized fully synthetic fuels from residual biomass. At KIT, a pilot plant is under construction, where the complete technical process chain will be implemented. Products of the individual process stages can already be used economically. The high-quality synthesis gas produced by entrained-flow gasification in the third process step can be applied to produce basic chemical substances.
iZeus (Hall 25, Stand L25). At the stand of the federal government, KIT will present its project "iZEUS- intelligent Zero Emission Urban System". This project focuses on the use of flexible loads in households for integration of renewable energies.
