the new energy era for mobility

The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (Institut für Solare Energiesysteme, ISE) develops materials, components and processes for sustainable energy supply based on renewable energy sources. In the area of electric mobility, we work on innovative solutions for the integration of electric vehicles into the power grid and, together with partners from the automobile and utility industries, components and systems for energy management at the vehicle-to-grid interface, as well as power electronics and controllers for bidirectional charging systems. We also develop battery and fuel cell systems for electric and plug-in vehicles. Current research projects address the grid-compliant integration of vehicles and the support for grid stability within an environment of highly fluctuating renewable energy sources. We also work on intelligent interfaces to building energy management systems and the appropriate communication technologies and protocols.The institutes key areas are: "Model-based grid simulation" Energy management software and operating control algorithms Smart charging infrastructure components for future-proof grid integration Highly efficient conductive and inductive charging systems Bidirectional grid integration of mobile storage units for improving grid stability Innovative and efficient battery systems for stationary and mobile applications and battery management systems Testing, modelling and simulating battery and fuel cell systems Smart grid information and communication technologies Electrolysis and hydrogen filling stations.
