Company / Institution introduction:
DLR is Germany's national research center for aeronautics and space. Its extensive research and development work in aeronautics, space, transportation and energy is integrated into national and international cooperative ventures. DLR’s research portfolio ranges from fundamental research to innovative development of the applications and products of tomorrow. In this way, DLR contributes the scientific and technical know-how that it has gained, thus enhancing Germany’s industrial and technological reputation. The Institute of Technical Thermodynamics is one of 32 research institutes of the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Research efforts of its 200 staff members in Stuttgart, Cologne and Almeria (Spain) are focussed on efficient energy conversion with low environmental impact, and on the improvement and acceleration of the use of renewable energy sources.

Its topics are:
• Solar research
• Electrochemical Energy Technology
• Systems analysis and technology assessment
• Thermal process technology

The Solar Research division is one of the world's leading research groups in the field of concentrating solar thermal systems. Together with our industrial partners we have the ambition to develop concentrating systems for heat, power and fuel generation for a sustainable energy supply. Besides the German test facilities and laboratories in Cologne and Stuttgart, we have access to the biggest European test center for concentrating solar technologies, the Plataforma Solar in Almería, Spain. An emphasis of our work on solar fuels is the solar hydrogen production by thermochemical cycles especially for the use in stationary and mobile fuel cell systems. Also low temperature solar photochemical and solar thermal processes for CO2 reduction and other synfuel generation are developed.

The section Electrochemical Energy Technology develops high-efficient energy conversion systems based on fuel cell technologies for low and high temperatures, battery systems and electrolysers for renewable hydrogen production. Starting from a fundamental electrochemical research expertise, the institute develops innovative manufacturing processes, novel cell designs, defined functional layers, fuel cell and battery diagnostics, and prototype system for stationary, mobile and portable applications. A specific priority topic is the aviation application of fuel cells where the group has demonstrated a fuel cell-powered unmanned aerial verhicle (HyFish), the first on-board fuel cell sytem in a civil aircraft and recently a manned motorglider Antares DLR-H2 with fuel cell propulsion

Products / Services on display at HANNOVER MESSE 2010:
