10th October 2015: FAU hosts LOHC Energy Technology Cluster session from Bayern Innovativ

The Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and Bavarian Hydrogen Center hosted an Energy Technology Cluster session from Bayern Innovativ on the topic “LOHC – Energy Storage by means of Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers” on October 10th 2015 in Erlangen. Bayern Innovativ plays an active role in Bavaria’s Cluster Strategy to further the cooperation between science and industry. The “LOHC” session included almost 50 participants, primarily from outside the university. The program organised by Dr. Manfred Fenzl, Cluster Energy Technology Management, included presentations from Bavarian Hydrogen Center professors Prof. Eberhard Schlücker and Prof. Jürgen Karl. Dr. Daniel Teichmann gave an update from the BHC spin-off company Hydrogenious Technologies GmbH and Erich Maurer, Director at Energieagentur Nordbayern GmbH, discussed decentralised heating networks. The session was rounded-off with a comparison of LOHC und alternative hydrogen storage systems presented by Patrick Adametz (Institute of Separation Science & Technology, FAU), member of the System Analysis BHC project team. A demonstration of the dehydrogenation and hydrogenation BHC lab-rigs at the university completed the meeting.
