Munich, 21 June 2016 – it is available in unlimited quantities, free and totally climate-friendly. Power from solar energy. However, it takes more to achieve a true energy turnaround. The power of the sun also has to be harnessed for the heat and mobility market. At Intersolar 2016, GP JOULE is showing how this power generation refinement can be achieved.
Unused power from renewable energies is converted into hydrogen and stored with virtually no losses using PEM electrolysis. The hydrogen can then be converted back to electricity as required, utilised as a green fuel for hydrogen cars, used in industry as a fuel or as a production material. Naturally this also applies to the heat generated in the conversion process which can be utilised using the existing heat infrastructure thereby making fossil energy sources superfluous.
“Our innovative power-to-gas technology is proof of this: ensuring our energy supply with 100 percent renewable energies must no longer remain only a vision.”, says GP JOULE founder and managing director Ove Petersen. In this context he forthrightly criticises the current politics in Berlin: ““The ‘additional load activation model’, suggested by the state of Schleswig-Holstein, could boost investment and innovations enormously – however, only if it was defined as an application open to all technologies in the EEG 2016 (EEG = German Renewable Energies Act)”. He continues: “instead the cabinet draft is limited to application in existing CHP systems. This completely devalues the concept, and the path from electricity turnaround to energy turnaround is blocked”, says Petersen.
With its new business area CONNECT, GP JOULE now also offers the opportunity of combining the benefits of consistent sector coupling of electricity, mobility and heat. Industry and commercial enterprises or local communities can thus profit from attractively priced electricity and implement suitable infrastructure solutions in the areas of mobility and storage. These individual solutions make it possible to market renewable energy regionally, directly and intelligently. For example for electric vehicles which are charged with climate-friendly CONNECT electricity – and not only in front of your own doorstep. The charging stations developed precisely for this purpose are also on display at the trade fair stand. In this way the entire energy value chain from production, distribution to usage remains under one roof.
The centrepiece of the exhibition area at Intersolar 2016: the interactive model of a full-scale energy cycle – naturally powered by 100 percent renewable energy. In a hands-on fashion using state-of-the-art Augmented Reality Technology, GP JOULE is demonstrating what the energy world of tomorrow can look like: another highlight at the trade fair stand is the GP JOULE Phlegon Mover. The intelligent tracking frame for greenfield photovoltaic systems follows the course of the sun and ensures optimal alignment of the PV modules. 25 percent higher yield is guaranteed.
