German-Chilean knowledge transfer started with online workshop

Chilean and German experts took the opportunity to discuss and share latest developments of the energy transition in their countries during the international workshop “Towards a Sustainable Future”.



Green hydrogen or green electricity for building heating?

A study by the Fraunhofer IEE in Kassel examined the use of hydrogen in the future energy system with a special focus on building heat supply and related it to the direct use of electric power in heat pumps. An online presentation of the study and follow-up discussion will take place on: 22 July 2020 at 16:00 – 17:15.



Impact assessment of F-gas free medium voltage switchgear

Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) plays an important role as an insulating gas in electrical switchgear. The Fraunhofer IEE in Kassel and the Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM) finalized a research study investigating the development of MV switchgear installations under different boundaries showing the impact on SF6 emissions, and analyzing the market acceptance of SF6-free alternatives, as well as barriers and drivers to adoption.



New Megawatt testing equipment for over-voltage ride through

The new testing equipment is designed to analyze the dynamic behavior of wind turbines, photovoltaic inverters and combined heat and power units during short time over voltages of the supply voltage.



Capacity Building for the Indian Energy Transition

The Fraunhofer Institute for Energy Economics and Energy System Technology IEE has launched a capacity building program for energy system transfor-mation in India together with the Indian institute IIT Mumbai and partners from industry. The focus of this program is on grid integration of renewable energy. It is initiated by the German Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusam-menarbeit GIZ and aims at employees of Indian grid operators who are active in grid operation and management.



Accreditation according to the latest grid connection guidelines

For its SysTec test center, the Fraunhofer Institute for Energy Economics and Energy System Technology IEE has once again received accreditation in accordance with the latest testing guidelines for the electrical properties of power generation units, systems and components connected to low, medium, high and extra-high voltage networks.
