Federal Economics Ministry is investing in energy efficiency and climate protection

The Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology has established its policy to promote research and development of advanced energy technologies in a program “Climate protection and energy efficiency” bundling. To the program sought modernization of Germany’s energy supply to drive forward innovation and the processes, the German Economics Ministry, the technology program funded by an additional Euro 15 million, so that for 2009 total Euro 115 million for the promotion of modern energy technologies to be available.

This German Economics Minister Michael Glos: “The financial gain of the technology program is an important step to promote innovation and modern energy technologies, because the only way to Germany, the energy challenges of the future master.”

For information and to develop ideas for a continuation of the research, the Ministry of Economy successful examples of the program in a brochure entitled “Climate protection and energy efficiency” zusammengestellt. The examples show the progress in various fields, such as in the field of modern power plant technologies, fuel cells and hydrogen, with the efficient use of electricity and storage technologies as well as the building and improved energy efficiency in the industry. The brochure can be ordered and is also available for download (see “Further information”).

Starting shot for the “Blue Tower Herten”

Economy Minister Christa Thoben presented today in the presence of leaders of the city and the investor Herten the Zuwendungsbescheid for the demonstration project “Blue Tower” to the CEO Dr. Heinz-J├╝rgen M├╝hlen H2 Herten Ltd. The “Blue Tower” is an important building block for the hydrogen competence Center of the City Herten on the grounds of the former colliery “Ewald.” The State of North Rhine-Westphalia promotes the project in the coming years with a total of 7.1 million euros.
Blue Tower Herten
“With the realization of the” Blue Tower “is an innovative process technology, which once again the leader of North Rhine-Westphalia in the hydrogen and fuel cell technology underpinned. Such efficiency technologies demonstrate the competitiveness of our businesses and make a significant contribution to climate protection, “said Economy Minister Christa Thoben today 21.01.2009 in Herten. The company intends H2Herten Ltd., the investment in 2009 is still in operation.

With the “Blue Tower Herten” is the first time a 13-megawatt prototype plant for the production and use of hydrogen energy from biomass will be achieved. The underlying asset of this procedure is the technician, Dr. Heinz-J├╝rgen M├╝hlen been invented and developed. With the “Blue Tower” will be the first time advanced process technology on an industrial scale demonstrated that this product gas derived from biomass (green waste) can be used directly for the operation of gas engines or for the production of hydrogen used. The “Blue Tower” includes a whole series of previous research projects, some of which are also protected by the country have been promoted.

Solar Millennium AG, Erlangen, is contributing more than 13 million euros in the realization of the current project in Herten. She wants the product gas obtained in the framework of a hybrid drive in solar power, and thus the basic needs “around the clock”, thus also to the times of the day on which solar energy is not available, cover.

Electrical industry relies on hydrogen

HB BERLIN. Sun to acquire environmentally friendly vehicles a greater range, with the batteries alone will not allow it. Was necessary but, with government promotion of a network of hydrogen filling stations to build.

elektro

For the introduction of electric cars in the next few years offer the hybrid technology, with a conventional internal combustion engine combined with a battery. Charged the battery can be referring to normal outlets. Such pilot projects, the German carmaker, in cooperation with major energy companies already started. The federal government has spent the goal that soon in the next decade, the first electric car to buy to be. By 2020, about one million vehicles enter.

Gift ideas: a car with hydrogen model!

It is not just the little ones who want to be spoiled by Santa, the adults too! I suggest a gift that will make you fall in childhood but which will take you to a sustainable mobility of the future: a kit to give birth to a car with fuel cell with hydrogen in the remote model, called Horizon oil FCJJ-20. For fuel, distilled water is needed because of electricity will be turned into hydrogen fuel and oxygen. A solar cell can produce electricity. Its design will transport you to another world! The website www.conrad.fr sold at a price of 79 euros until 1 January 2009. It’s your turn!

Daimler’s concept car “BlueZERO” exhibition

Germany’s Daimler, 2009, Detroit Motor Show (North American International Auto Show 2009, open day: January 2009 17-24), Mercedes Benz concept car brand “BlueZERO” Exhibitor said. The modular structure of the electric vehicle “BlueZERO E-CELL”, the fuel cell car, “said F-CELL”, a series hybrid, “said E-CELL PLUS” to create three separate types. The shows “E-CELL” and “F-CELL” exhibit.

Has a double bed, putting a sandwich structure to accommodate the battery in the meantime and make three different types. This is the company 10 years ago Mercedes Benz “A class” structure was built by then, “B class” to expand. Cell, the floor will accommodate the device, such as fuel cells, the center of the body center of gravity, not to adversely affect the handling to get lower. In addition, a strong collision.
