Greenhouse gas sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) in the energy sector

New study on the use of the greenhouse gas sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) in the energy sector started. Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) plays an important role as an insulating gas in electrical switchgear at various voltage levels when interrupting and diverting current flows. At the same time, it is one of the most effective greenhouse gases with a very long lifetime and, although the concentration of SF6 in the atmosphere is currently still very low, it accumulates steadily over the years.




Flexible and software based
infrastructures for smart grids

Which infrastructures are needed for cost efficient smart grid integration of energy consumers with controllable loads and prosumers with renewable generators? The challenge to answer this question was taken by an interna-tional consortium with participation of Fraunhofer IEE in the last three and a half years in a research- and demonstration project, which was funded by the European Union with 11.7 Mio. €.
