Department Energy Systems and Infrastructures: Energy and Resource-Efficient Systems

Energy-efficient, green and system-integrated


We use our years of experience and our expertise in process engineering to develop demand-driven power-to-X system designs, limit-based methods for assessing process efficiency, and methods for resource efficiency and recovery. We bring our research expertise to bear in individual applications, from the idea to operation. In industry projects, we apply methods we have developed in every discipline, thus meeting practical requirements.

Since standard processes and energy systems neglect complete systemic integration in distributed applications, capacity factors are often not fully utilized during demand-driven design, supply and operation. Limit-based methods based on the “physical optimum” facilitate the selection, assessment and optimization of energy processes. Efficient energy and resource use is a priority. Design, forecasting, maintenance and operation based on innovative performance indicator systems are already actionable in many industrial companies.
