Project description

Renewable volatile energy generation systems such as photovoltaics, solar thermal energy and wind power address a need for energy storage options in order to be able to provide electricity and heat even when no energy is being generated. In order to enable optimal energy and cost-efficient storage, interdisciplinary, integrative and cross-technology know-how is required. These framework conditions place high demands on companies that want to specialize in the key technology area of energy storage.

In the eNNOVATION innovation course, 16 participating company partners received a higher level of R&D qualification for their deployed employees with regard to innovative electrical and thermal storage technologies and their intelligent networking within hybrid networks. The three-semester course was developed by the Burgenland University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with the Institute for Renewable Energies at the Technical University of Applied Sciences in Vienna and 4ward Energy Research GmbH and implemented in a modular form.

The innovation course strengthened the competitiveness of the companies involved through research-related further development in the field of energy storage technologies. Added value was created through the networking of the companies, whose cooperation will continue after the end of the project.
