Together with nine partners, Landshut University of Applied Sciences is developing a data-based concept for the expansion of the charging infrastructure for electromobility.
Industry and private consumers alike depend on oil and gas pipelines that stretch thousands of kilometers underwater. It is not uncommon for these pipelines to become clogged with deposits. Until now, there have been few means of identifying the formation of plugs in-situ and non-destructively. Measurements at the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) now show that neutrons may provide the solution of choice.
The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded both Prof. Dr. Johanna Pausch, Junior Professor of Agricultural Ecology at the University of Bayreuth, and Prof. Dr. Matteo Bianchini, Chair of Inorganic Active Materials for Electrochemical Energy Storage at the University of Bayreuth, an ERC Starting Grant. Pausch will receive € 1.5 million and Bianchini € 1.8 million for their respective research projects over the next five years.
UR scientists explore electronic circuits without heat dissipation
In the "Research Factory Battery" cluster network of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the University of Bayreuth is now also involved in the "Solid State Batteries - FestBatt" cluster of competence. A new research project coordinated from Bayreuth aims to significantly increase the energy density of rechargeable all solid-state batteries and make the production of these batteries more sustainable. To this end, the powder aerosol deposition (PAD) method is a promising process to be used in future for the coating of cathodes and solid electrolytes. Research partners are Saarland University and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
Landshut University of Applied Sciences develops a contactless, fast temperature measuring device for the steel industry that is designed to reduce energy and production costs and improve product quality
A new project at Landshut University of Applied Sciences deals with the development of a self-learning method for the production of batteries and thereby aims to strengthen Germany in terms of the global competition
Linking new electrochemical processes with the production of high-value substances by enzymes and microorganisms is the goal of a still fledgling research approach, bioelectrosynthesis. Prof. Dr. Frank Hahn, head of a research group in organic chemistry at the University of Bayreuth, is seeking to advance this approach in the field of polyketides, a class of substances of significant importance in pharmacy and biomedicine. He will receive funding of approximately € 1 million from the Volkswagen Foundation over the next seven years as part of its "Momentum" initiative.
Hof/Münchberg, June 23, 2021 - Energy storage is one of the key issues for a sustainable energy supply in the future. Thousands of researchers around the world are currently working on this issue. An exciting project is also currently underway at the Münchberg campus of Hof University of Applied Sciences. Here, new types of ice batteries for cooling applications are being researched, which can help to sustainably reduce energy and CO2. They are powered by surplus solar energy.
A new research project of the Institute for Water and Energy Management at Hof University of Applied Sciences aims at promoting the potential and usage of hydropower in existing water facilities. The project "Network for the Generation of Energy with Hydropower in Existing Water Facilities (NEEWa)", funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) with 417,000 EUR, strengthens the knowledge transfer from the Green Tech University Hof to regional companies. In addition, the project contributes to the success of Hof as a center of competence for water and renewable energies in the region.
