Together towards climate neutrality with German energy solutions
In March, our side-events of the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue (BETD) was attended by over 100 participants from four continents taking part in two video conferences. Organised by the German Energy Solutions Initiative, the goal behind the events was to create a networking forum where German companies and their international partners presented their joint projects and exchanged learnings. Highlights included the presentation of a solar-powered desalination system in Zanzibar and the highly energy efficient "Passive House Bruck" building in Changxing, in the subtropical southeast of China.

Energy Efficiency Awards Showcases – East China
Technology Showcase East China - LUTHER Design
Green building technology from Germany is creating a stir in East China by demonstrating how buildings can become more energy efficient – as the latest flagship projects in the region show. Five East China projects received Energy Efficiency Awards last year, which are funded by the BMWi under the German Energy Solutions Initiative. For example, Passive House Bruck, a five-storey apartment block in Changxing, Zhejiang Province, which was also presented at our BETD side event, boasts innovations such as triple-glazed windows with an intelligent shading system and an insulated terracotta façade that protects the building shell from overheating in hot weather. While in Yangpu District, Shanghai, the Eurocampus German school campus has been fitted out with the latest energy conserving technologies from German companies to reduce overall consumption by 33 percent.

Inductive Charging – not just for mobile phones
Opens in a new window
Find out how two physicists from the Technical University of Munich developed a highly innovative superconducting coil which is capable of contactless power transmission in a range of over five kilowatts with only small losses. Their breakthrough means that larger electronic devices such as industrial robots, medical equipment and even autonomous aircraft could one day be charged wirelessly, while idle. Its Contactless power transmission (CPT) is a technology that will advance automation in Germany and support Industry 4.0.

Testing hydrogen technologies just got easier
Opens in a new window
A measurement sensor that captures precise force parameters in the testing and development of the parts used in H2 technology, is now ready for commercial use. The innovation, which won the “ThinKing” innovation prize, awarded by the Baden-Württemberg Agency for Lightweight Construction, was developed by a team of researchers from the Materials Testing Institute (MPA) at the University of Stuttgart. In practice, it will make hydrogen application systems safer, more durable and quicker to market.
