How can synthetic fuels contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions in the transport sector? Will they make it possible to fulfill ambitious reduction targets? This is what the project NaMoSyn is all about – the German acronym stands for „sustainable mobility with synthetic fuels“. The project will be presented in a virtual talk event on June 30. In a podium discussion, experts from different…

LES is continuously engaged in experimental and simulative investigation of the full power-to-X process route. Different reactor concepts for different process configurations (CO2-PtX, biomass gasification with electricity integration, novel biogas conversion) are investigated and optimized.

The third roadmap of the Kopernikus P2X project will be published in July. In the middle of the second project phase, the newest research results on the conversion of electricity into synthetic material, fuels, gas and heat are shown.

Prof. Dr. Hubert Gasteiger on the TV show Planet Wissen in an interview about current developments and future potentials of the energy carrier hydrogen.

For several years, the es chair has been involved in the modeling and validation of component models for the power-to-X storage chain, in particular PEM electrolyzer, PEM fuel cell and H2 storage tank. The goal is to reproduce the behavior of the system components with respect to efficiency and aging as accurately as possible and to integrate an image of the system components into the storage…

The "battery with windows" makes it possible to measure the lithium concentration within an electrode as a function of depth during charging and discharging with the help of neutrons. The new technique can help clarify reaction mechanisms in batteries and understand ageing phenomena.

The paper reports investigations of the formation of space charge layers at different electrode polarisations using impedance spectroscopy. Which are analysed with a physical equivalent circuit model describing the response of the solid/solid interfaces under blocking conditions.

The Institute for Electrical Energy Storage Technology exists now for 10 years. Therefore we offer an overview over the research, the projects and the tasks of the Institute in a revised brochure about the Institute. You can download the brochure here.

The study presents in situ electrochemical impedance spectroscopy data measured during (de)sodiation and (de)lithiation of a commercial hard carbon anode material comparing the contributions to the hard carbon electrode resistance (Ranode), i.e., charge transfer (RCT), pore (Rpore), and separator resistance (RHFR).

Today, after almost two years of collaboration in the TUM.Battery network, we can look back on a very successful time. Despite the challenges that Covid-19 pandemic brought to all of us, with restricted laboratory operations in spring and again towards the end of the year, numerous publications and project starts could be reported this year.
