DLR at the Hannover Trade Fair: Intelligent wind turbines, efficient energy storage and 40 years of energy research
Using their knowledge and expertise in the field of aviation, researchers from #DLR
have developed innovative ideas for wind turbine rotors. During the +Hannover Messe
, which will take place from 25 to 29 April 2016, they will demonstrate how their intelligent rotor blades adapt to #wind
loads. DLR is also focusing on #energy
storage which is increasingly making use of renewable energy sources. DLR researchers are developing storage solutions for industrial use. These solutions could enable large amounts of energy to be stored in the form of heat. These new thermal energy storage systems will be presented at the Trade Fair.
In addition, DLR is celebrating its 40th anniversary of #energyresearch
and is taking a look back at its successes and achievements in this field: http://www.dlr.de/40Years
