Part 3 of Prof. Dr. Michael Weinhold’s insights into the future of energy from an interview given at Hannover Messe on April 8:  “I like to think of storage in the widest sense,” says Dr. Weinhold. “It’s not only about storing electricity for later use. It’s also about crossing over into other infrastructures like mobility. For example, we see it now in electic and hybrid cars that carry batteries. (As an aside, at Dr. Weinholds university institute they converted a Trabant into an E-Trabi as fa ...

Gaelle Hotellier about Hydrogen at Hannover Messe

Hannover Messe 2014 - High hopes for hydrogen

The principle of Electrolysis has been known for decades but PEM electrolysis is an important new technology for the production of hydrogen as an energy carrier.  This form of energy is particularly useful for energy storage when used in conjunction with renewable energy sources because it is extremely clean. The technology can be used to help stabilize grids in the face of increased demand or fluctuation in supply of highly weather-dependent wind or solar energy. It also has application in the ...
