Storage and cross-linked infrastructures (SCI)

This program, which is integrated in both the EE and EMR programmes, focusses on technical means of energy storage and distribution. The goal is to minimise future power fluctuations caused by energy generation/consumption imbalances while continuing to develop transmission infrastructure to allow different energy carriers to be interconnected. Different energy storage solutions are being investigated for this purpose. HZB is involved in one of six topics addressing development of electrochemical storage solutions through to the application stage. Acknowledging the need for both stationary and mobile energy storage, the focus is on materials for use in electrodes as well as on electrolytes.
