DLR - German Aerospace Center - Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics
Booth No. 43, List-Saal
DLR is the Federal Republic of Germany’s research centre for aeronautics and space. We conduct research and development activities in the fields of aeronautics, space, energy, transport, security and digitalisation. Our 9000 employees share a mission – to explore Earth and space and develop technologies for a sustainable future. In doing so, DLR contributes to strengthening Germany’s position as a prime location for research and industry.
At DLR's virtual conference booth you will meet researchers of the DLR research institute of Engineering Thermodynamics based in Stuttgart, with further research facilities in Cologne, Ulm, Oldenburg and Hamburg. We do research in the field of efficient energy storage systems that conserve natural resources, and next generation energy conversion technologies with a staff of 180 scientific and technical employees, engineers and doctoral candidates. The spectrum of activities ranges from theoretical studies to laboratory work for basic research and to the operation of pilot plants. These experimental and theoretical studies are accompanied by systems analysis studies to analyse the associated technological, environmental and economic potential and situate it in a larger overall context of the energy economy by means of scenarios.
A tight network with the University of Stuttgart - especially with the Institute of Energy Storage - and with the Helmholtz Institute Ulm at the University of Ulm is existing.
As last year we are accompanied also by our colleagues of the DLR Institute of Vehicle Concepts with our common exhibit. The DLR Institute of Vehicle Concepts researches, develops and evaluates new vehicle concepts and technologies in light of future demands on the transportation system. As a systems institute, they develop and demonstrate innovative, application-based solutions for road and
rail vehicles, thereby contributing to the design of a sustainable and cost-effective, user-oriented, secure and networked mobility concept. Their contributions range from design and planning to construction, calculation and simulation through to the manufacture of research demonstrations, components and vehicles.
