STORENERGY Congress takes up starting position
Offenburg. On November 11 + 12, 2020, the STORENERGY Congress sets the tone for concrete exchange to shape an innovation-oriented future. For two days, the modern Oberrheinhalle will focus on storage technology, market models, sector coupling and grid integration as well as current market developments. "Due to our generous infrastructure, we are pleased to offer participants a safe stay with us. Starting with modern ventilation systems, online registrations, contactless service and distance rules, we can create momentum together," explains project manager Gabriele Weislogel.
Until the end of June, speakers submitted their contributions as part of a call for papers. "The number and quality was particularly high this year. At this point, it becomes clear how dynamically this market is developing," Weislogel continues.
An expert advisory board is now putting together the congress program. The STORENERGY Congress will be supported by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulf Herrmann. Since February 1, 2014, he has been Professor of Regenerative Energy Technology at the Department of Energy Technology and at the same time holds the position of Director of the Solar Institute Jülich(SIJ). After his studies, he worked for four years at the ZSW in Stuttgart, then at a technology supplier for solar thermal power plants. Here he was involved in the implementation of solar power plants and the realization of thermal storage systems in Spain and the USA. Today, in addition to solar power plants, he focuses on energy storage and holistic energy supply system considerations.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Niklas Hartmann was appointed Professor of Energy Systems and Energy Economics of Engineering at Offenburg University of Applied Sciences on March 1, 2019. At the university, he heads the Energy Systems and Energy Economics research group and is also deputy head of the Institute for Applied Research. Prof. Hartmann's field of research is energy system analysis and the planning, design and operation of energy systems. The focus is also on the marketing of individual technologies and entire decentralized energy systems on the markets as well as on the economic evaluation of renewable energies and flexibilities.
The third member of the team is Dr.-Ing. Marcel Weil, a proven expert on sustainability issues related to energy technologies. He has been one of the leading scientists of the new Cluster of Excellence for "Post Lithium Storage" (POLiS) since 2019 and is responsible for the topic area of sustainability, leading the RESET research group at ITAS since 2020. Congress participants can thus expect an interesting program.
