Electric cars are on the rise these days, but what will happen next? Electric aircrafts?

This is exactly the vision of Prof. Dr. Dr. De Doncker, director of E.On ERC. In an extremely interesting interview with the Belgian newspaper "de standaard" he talks about his career as an engineer and the future of electric drives in automobiles and aviation.

EEG 2017 brings new marketing possibilities for regionally produced green energy

After green power privilege were canceled by the EEG 2014, there were calls for a successor system. With the EEG 2017, a regional green electricity labelling scheme was therefore introduced.
The aim of this instrument is to promote the use of renewable energy sources and to increase the acceptance of regionally generated renewable electricity.
If this regionally generated electricity is consumed in the vicinity, grids can be relieved, losses reduced and possibly the acceptance of regenerative power plants can be improved.

| ACS | Intercontinental cooperation - researchers pair ten simulators for a transatlantic simulation

"In the global real-time super lab project scientists from the US and Europe bring together their knowledge, experience and their
most Powerful Real-time simulators, to prepare global power supply networks for the enormous challenges of the future." Professor Antonello Monti of ACS (ACS) of E.ON ERC Aachen summarizes the project, which combines a set of researchers working t...ogether in an unprecedented transatlantic cooperation. In the US, three national research institutes and three universities, on the european side the Politecnico di Torino in Italy and ACS, are involved

Congratulations to Dr. Mohsen Ferdowsi! (in the picture on the right
besides Professor Antonello Monti) The former doctoral student at ACS, received the STAWAG Pomotionspreis 2017 in early December at the Day of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology!

Ferdowsi holds a bachelor's and master's degree from the University of Tehran in his home country Iran. He then went on to do research as a doctoral student at ACS of E. ON ERC. His dissertation is titled "Data-Driven Approaches for Monitoring of Distribution Grids".

Project Launch of FISEMP!

The aim of the EU project "FiSMEP" (FIWARE for Smart Energy Platform) is to develop a cloud-based, service-oriented open-source software platform (also called FIWARE) to provide an efficient, automatic and sustainable energy supply for individual buildings and communities.
The platform concept, which is known as “Smart Energy Platform“, has already been developed in the previous EU project “FINESCE“(Future INtErnet Smart Utility Services). FISMEP on the results of FINESCE and will further advance the platform by designing and adding new services to increase the flexibility of energy systems.
Our two institutes EBC and ACS, as well as the FEN Research Campus are significantly involved. In cooperation with Chalmers University of Technology, the EBC conducts the Field Test Sweden, the ACS and the FEN Research Campus will lead the Field Test Germany.

Big energy saving potentials in shopping centers!

In order to make customers feel comfortable in shopping centers, you need large quantities of energy, whether for heating or ventilation.
In the research project EffShop, the institute for design and construction (Iek) of the leibnitz university of Hanover and the institute EBC of E.ON ERC analysed energy consumption of different air techniques in shopping centres, and have come to very promising results.


The studies carried out by EBC show, among other things, that the consumption of intensive equipment can be reduced to about half, without a perceptible deterioration of air quality. If unpleasant smells are to be avoided, the specific extraction of the emission load is recommended directly on the product
The integration of existing air-water systems into ventilation and air conditioning of sales outlets is considered promising by the scientists of EBC .On the basis of the simulation results,the scientist recommend this measure for the equipment of future shopping

Last Friday, Dr. Michael Weinhold, cto of the Siemens Energy Management Division, gave an extraordinary lecture on "the role of energy in the future energy system"!

The renowned scientist and manager explained, in an astonishing and even for non-experts understandable manner, what challenges transport and distribution networks have to face in the shift to a decentralized power generation in wind and solar energy. Here, he paid special attention to the possible present and fut...ure role of energy storage systems.
For Dr. Weinhold, the future are "agile" supply networks, which connect renewable power generation and extremely flexible conventional power plants with flexible loads, smart grid technologies and energy storage of any kind. In terms of network stabilisation, the Siemens manager, sees the lithium-ion battery, at least in a medium term, in advance of largely exhausted pump storage potentials. Yet for high energy quantities "it is more of an hydrogen case", said Dr. Weinhold.

Which heating system is the right thing for me?

Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly clear: the cold season begins and it is time to heat. In Germany, around 75 % of total final energy consumption is accounted for by the heating energy. In this respect, the consumer has innovative heating systems, such as oil or gas condensing boilers with solar thermal support, heat pumps or wood-pellet-fired boilers. These heating systems provide an equivalent quality of heat, but dif...fer significantly in their economic, environmental and technical characteristics.
So what factors does the decision for a particular heating system really have?

This is exactly what the fcn studied in the project " modeling the diffusion of competing residential heating systems, have a look on our website!…/Modeling-the-Diff…/…

The optimal location for wind farms: does social acceptance really matter?

The choice of location is essential for the success of a windpark. In addition to taking technical requirements, economic benefits and spatial aspects into account, the assessment of negative external effects (such as the cause of noise, depreciation of land) has to be considered. Declining social acceptance has become a central and increasingly considered topic in the context of a successful realisati...on of wind farm projects.

Our institutes pgs and fcn have developed a system for decisionmaking, which puts a special focus on the problem of social acception.

In Laborexperimenten wird oft beobachtet, dass Menschen den Effekt ihrer Entscheidungen auf Andere berücksichtigen. Dies wird Soziale Präferenzen gennant. In Diktator Spielen zum beispiel,neigen die Teilnehmer dazu einen großen Teil ihrer Austattung mit einem passiven Co-Teilnehmer zu teilen.
Dieses Verhalten spiegelt jedoch nicht unbedingt reale Vorlieben wider.

Ein Grund für diese Inkonsistenz wird in dem laufendem Projekt "Effort and Accuracy in Social Preferences", geför...dert durch die Exzellenzinitiative des Bundes und der Länder, des FCN untersucht.

In experiments, it is often observed that people take into account the effect of their decisions on This will called social preferences. In Dictator, for example, the participants tend to share a large part of their equipment with a passive co-participant. However, this behaviour does not necessarily reflect real preferences. A reason for this inconsistency is being studied in the current project "effort and accuracy in social preferences", supported by the federal government and the countries of the federal A detailed project description can be found on our website:
