Building renovation needs to be speeded up – synthesis on the main topic of "Buildings and Settlements”
From a technical perspective, the objectives of Energy Strategy 2050 are already achievable in the building sector. However, there is a lack of up-to-date legislation and knowledge amongst experts.
Completed joint project "Biochemically-catalytically produced biofuels"
A new technology has been developed for the gaining of biofuels for the aviation industry and its sustainability has been assessed.
Completed project: Nanostructured lithium-ion batteries
The focus of this project was to improve battery performance by engineering the anode and cathode in a mesostructured and hierarchical fashion.
Completed joint project "Hydropower and geo-energy"
The project investigated the potential for new hydropower plants and obtained findings on the use of underground areas for geothermal energy and CO2 storage.
