Competence E (Hall 25, Stand K21). At the "MobiliTec" joint stand of the Baden-Wrttemberg State Agency for Electromobility and Fuel Cell Technology, KIT will present its "Competence E" project. Under this project, researchers are working on electric energy stores and power trains for mobile and stationary applications. They are pursuing an integrated approach from the molecule to the battery to the electric motor with power electronics to the complete electric power train. Apart from novel cells, batteries, and power trains, they are developing new low-cost fabrication methods.
Hydrogen Infrastructure (Hall 27, Stand D40). Hydrogen research and infrastructure at KIT extends from generation by conventional methods as well as from residual biomass to storage and use to the safety of hydrogen as an energy carrier. This year, KIT will be provided with a hydrogen fuel station and two environmentally friendly hydrogen buses for the shuttle service between the KIT premises. Thanks to their serial hybrid drives with a fuel cell as electricity supplier, these hydrogen-driven electric buses do not produce any hazardous exhaust gas emissions. They only emit pure water vapor.
Superconductors in Energy Technology (Hall 13, Stand C51). At the "SuperConductingCity" joint stand, KIT will present innovative developments and applications relating to high-temperature superconductivity. It allows for energy transmission with hardly any losses, enhances energy efficiency, and facilitates safe integration of decentralized and regenerative energy sources in the grid. Among the applications are superconductin
