The major objective of our team is to expand the fundamental comprehension of sorption storage and to create the prerequisites for a considerably improved sorption storage based on a fundamental research approach while maintaining an application orientation. For this purpose, new heating concepts are also investigated in detail, to cover the heating demand of buildings via seasonal thermal energy storage.
AirWater – Development of a compact system for independent and continuous solar sorptive water harvesting from the air in arid regions
In Relation to / In the context of the "AirWater" cooperation project, a compact, site-independent system is to be developed that operates without electricity and enables the continuous extraction of water from the air with minimal use of electrical power in arid regions.
Degree - Investigation of a dynamic control of the cooling circuit temperatures of computing centers to increase efficiency and to create a manual for the realization of corresponding concepts
In the cooperation project “Degree“, using the example of the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), a dynamic control of the cooling circuit temperatures shall be investigated to increase the efficiency of the cooling system.
Heat2Share - Integration of sorptive heat storage in a biogas plant for the decentralized heat supply of Barenthin village
In the project ”Integration of sorptive heat storage in a biogas plant for the decentralized heat supply of Barenthin village”, a modularized, cascaded thermochemical heat storage shall be conceptually designed and built – based on the previous and completed research projects MoGeSoWa and COMTES.
SolSpaces-E - Innovative solar air heating and cooling system to reduce carbon dioxide emissions for the air conditioning of residential buildings
In the SolSpaces-E cooperation project, an air-based building heating and cooling system shall be developed. This system shall allow a reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by 50 % related to currently available air heating systems as well as building cooling with low carbon dioxide emissions.
SolWaAg - Innovative and highly efficient solar water recovery system to reduce the water demand for the irrigation of cultivated plants in agriculture – driven by 100 % renewable energy
The objective of the joint project is to develop a suitable water recovery concept to save water in greenhouse cultivation and to realize the concept in a demonstrator, characterized by a high degree of irrigation in order to save water and to contribute to the conservation of the groundwater resources.
