Energy oriented Center of Excellence EoCoE – Geothermal Energy for a Carbon Free Energy SupplyThe projects (Energy oriented Center of Excellence EoCoE) aim is to strengthen Europe’s existing leadership in high-performance computing (HPC) and accelerate the transition to a reliable and low carbon energy supply.
Micro- and Nanostructural Analysis of discharged Silicon-Electrodes for Si-Air batteriesSi-Air batteries are currently an interesting perspective for the development of next generation batteries. Unfortunately, nowadays realized prototypes do not reach the theoretical capacity. The group Applied Interface Electrochemistry led by JARA-ENERGY member Juniorprofessor Dr. Florian Hausen is investigating the evolution of the surface structure in order to gain a better understanding of the...
Cast iron for wind energyThe Institute for Materials Applications in Mechanical Engineering of RWTH Aachen University, headed by JARA-ENERGY member Prof. Christoph Broeckmann, work (among other subjects) on the challenge to adjust cast iron perfectly to the use for wind turbins.
Surface engineering institute – leading in the fields of PVD coating technology, thermal spraying and brazing technologySurface engineering institute (IOT) at RWTH Aachen University, headed by JARA-ENERGY member Prof. Kirsten Bobzin, is one of the leading research institutes in the fields of PVD coating technology, thermal spraying and brazing technology.
DESCRAMBLE – Numerical simulation of a supercritical water/steam reservoirDESCRAMBLE is a EU Horizon 2020 project funded within the “Low Carbon Energy” call: “Developing the next generation technologies of renewable electricity and heating/cooling”. The Institute for Applied Geophysics and Geothermal Energy, headed by JARA-ENERGY member Prof. Christoph Clauser, will accompany the drilling effort with reliable predictions of the physical quantities, like temperature, natural flow or rock properties, of the reservoir on regional and local scale.
