Green hydrogen is a central energy carrier for the climate-neutral future. Basic technical solutions in the field of hydrogen are known, but comprehensive integration into economic processes remains a challenge.
As a research facility of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology, the Technology Campus Wörth-Wiesent supports commercial enterprises in integrating hydrogen technologies into existing processes and jointly develops individual solutions for future-oriented issues. One area of application is heavy goods transport, whose conversion to renewable drive concepts is of particular importance due to the constantly increasing demand for transport.
With our three main research areas of power electronics, electrolysis and fuel cell technology, as well as process and systems technology, we cover the entire hydrogen value chain in an interdisciplinary manner. Together with the OTH Regensburg, we pool our experience and knowledge in the field of water technologies and, together with the Hydrogen Centre Kelheim (WTZ Kelheim), form the Danube Hydrogen Cluster.
The Technology Campus Wörth-Wiesent is currently under construction. Would you like to be part of actively shaping the future of hydrogen use and heavy-duty transport? Please feel free to contact us.
The research area for electrolysis and fuel cell technology is currently being established.
Hydrogen electrolysis is the conversion of electrical energy into chemical energy. Fuel cell technology represents the reverse process, i.e. the conversion of chemical energy into electrical energy.
The basic goals here are:
In power electronics, the focus is on increasing the efficiency of current and voltage conversion between a green electricity source and water electrolysis as well as a fuel cell and a mechanical drive system. Power electronics acts as a link between the green power source and the electrolyser as well as the fuel cells and the drive motor.
The research area for process and systems engineering is currently being established.
In order to build complete fuel cell systems, the entire system is considered in addition to optimising the individual components. In addition to the interaction of the individual components, safety technology, standardisation and the use of fuel cells and electrolyser systems in special applications are also considered.
By focusing on process and system technology, complete fuel cell systems can be offered to customers and research partners. This makes innovative retrofit solutions in existing systems possible, as well as supplier solutions developed specifically according to customer requirements. Furthermore, companies in the region can be advised and trained in the implementation of hydrogen systems.
Research areas in process and systems engineering are:
European cutting-edge technology is characterised by intensive cooperation between industry and universities and institutes.
We support you in publicly funded research projects - from idea development and application to the final report, and also carry out individual service and contract research projects for you.
Our team will be happy to answer all your research and development questions.
