As fossil energy sources run out, energy and raw material prices are rising. Making renewable energy resources utilizable has thus become a key issue of our day. This is accompanied by demands to utilize energy efficiently to cut costs in companies despite rising energy prices.
The Process and Plant Engineering Business Unit develops innovative technologies that efficiently convert and sustainably supply energy. We do this by creating optimally closed energy cycles in production processes or by utilizing renewable energy resources in efficient conversion systems.
Increasing use of renewable energies is imposing additional demands on energy supply systems’ electrical and information technologies. We develop solutions for large-scale monitoring, control and protection of the smart grids of the future incorporating the generator, load and storage structures.
In close cooperation with industry and the energy industry, we implement developed solutions as pilot plants or application.
We jointly operate the Power Systems and Renewable Energies Competence Center with Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg.
