New fuel cell units generate heat energy and electrical energy with an efficiency of over 90 percent running on natural gas, and on hydrogen and methane produced using renewable energy. With the help of extensive tests in single and two-family homes their operation and design could be improved incrementally. Additional information on the actual generation of fuel cells and the use in demonstration buildings is compiled in the new BINE-Projektinfo.

The Role of Demand Side Management (DSM) to Provide Flexibility in Electricity Systems   The share of intermittent renewables in the electricity system is rapidly growing all over the globe. In the EU they will represent 35% of electricity production by 2020 and are expected to reach 50% by 2030. But already today, at peak moments renewables make up for over 50% of production. This is a challenge for network operators, policy makers and regulators, but will also create business opportunities for old and new players.

  In this inaugural annual report on energy investments around the world, the International Energy Agency (IEA) looks at the lifeblood of the global energy system: investment. The ability to attract and direct capital flows is vital to transitioning to a low-carbon economy while also maintaining energy security and expanding energy access worldwide. The success or failure of energy policies can be measured by their ability to mobilise investments.

The challenges of exploiting lower temperatures and lower power are not only technological     Organic Rankine Cycle uses heat in water or exhaust gases to produce electricity. Often it uses waste heat. Most engineering companies implementing ORC-solutions do so for large systems at high temperatures and pressures.   The technology is now in the making to also exploit less powerful resources at lower temperatures.
