Two trains built by the French train maker Alstom are now operating on a 62 mile stretch of line in northern Germany.

Nürnberg Messe is investing in a hybrid hydrogen power plant. The exhibition grounds also want to be climate-neutral by 2028.

If the trade fair is running, the electricity meters are working at full speed. It is the same everywhere and also at the Nuremberg location. “On trade fair days we need around 15 megawatts when all the halls are fully loaded. That is as much electricity as a small town uses in a year, ”says Roland Fleck, co-boss of the operating company. On the other hand, on days when there is no trade fair, the electricity demand is significantly lower at 1.25 megawatts.

Lightweight electricity for commuters: DLR proposes electric two-seater with fuel cell

 Lightweight electricity for commuters: DLR proposes electric two-seater with fuel cell When designing the passenger cell, DLR opted for a tub with an attached ring structure. This is primarily used to absorb forces that act on the car while driving. The lightweight vehicle is powered by a fuel cell that turns hydrogen into electricity with a continuous output of 8.5 kilowatts. It is connected to a battery that can provide an additional 25 kilowatts of power.

The world ’ s first hydrogen - powered trains are operating in northern Germany on a 100km stretch of track. Although costlier than existing diesel locomotives With interest in hydrogen as a fuel source growing around the world , pioneering projects offer an important test of the role the gas can play in a

Nürnberg Messe, one of the 15 largest in the world, now wants to be more self-sufficient in the face of fluctuations in demand for electricity and at the same time more climate-friendly. That is why it is building a hybrid hydrogen power plant on its site. The trade fair aims to be climate neutral by 2028.

According to their own statements, the people of Nuremberg would have the first exhibition center in the world with a hydrogen-based power supply. The plans were appropriately announced at the “Hydrogen Dialogue” in Nuremberg. This is taking place for the first time, this year only digitally due to the corona.

The principle of the hybrid hydrogen power plant should work like this: Photovoltaic systems on the hall roofs of the fair produce green electricity. Excess electrical energy is converted into green hydrogen.

A traditional road bike void of fancy tube shapes and handlebar configurations—and any other design element that doesn’t substantively add to the quality of the ride. At the heart of the Aethos is a pure focus on a great cycling experience, not going fast and winning races. So what's the Aethos really about? Test Editor Bobby Lea takes a dive into what the newest project from Specialized is all about.

The long-term storage is based on liquid organic hydrogen carriers, the so-called LOHC technology. “At the same time, we use a battery storage system to compensate for short-term fluctuations,” explains Fleck. At the same time, the mobility infrastructure is to be expanded with e-charging stations and the construction of a hydrogen filling station.

Self-sufficient in the power supply

The starting shot for the hydrogen project is planned for the coming year. By the end of 2023, the trade fair wants to cover the basic energy requirements on the site 100 percent from renewable energy. In further steps it is planned to gradually expand the plant to a peak load of up to 15 megawatt hours. "We have energy costs of over five million euros a year, which we have previously paid to third parties," says Fleck. In future, Nürnberg Messe wants to be self-sufficient in terms of energy technology.

Today, coal-fired power plants continue to close, despite the Trump administration’ s promises of a revived industry. State and federal incentives, along with falling prices, are pushing our nation—and the In short, it’ s the first -ever plan to curb carbon pollution from U. S . power plants . Here’ s how it

In power generation, hydrogen is one of the leading options for storing renewable energy, and hydrogen and Ammonia could also be used in coal-fired power plants to reduce emissions. With a global energy sector in flux, the versatility of hydrogen is attracting stronger interest from a diverse

That initially requires high investments. For the CO2-neutral energy generation, the company calculates costs between 30 and 40 million euros for the system technology alone. Fleck hopes for support from the state of Bavaria, the federal government and the EU. As part of its national hydrogen strategy, which was presented in the summer, the federal government alone is funding projects in Germany with a total of seven billion euros.

Many trade fair companies are striving for more sustainable energy generation. Solar technology on exhibition roofs is nothing new in

Germany and worldwide: The energy generated is used during exhibition times and then made available to the local electricity provider, reports the Auma trade fair association. For example, Munich, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt have installed large photovoltaic systems on their hall roofs. However, a hydrogen power plant for storing excess energy is a novelty for exhibition grounds.

The people of Nuremberg want to set a signal for the new congress. More than 700 experts are currently taking part. “We want to expand the congress into a hydrogen trade fair in the next few years,” says Fleck. “That is why it is important that we use the future technology hydrogen on our premises ourselves. At the same time, we are increasing the authenticity of the Nuremberg exhibition center for the topic of hydrogen. ”
