The Institute of Vehicle Concepts at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft-und Raumfahrt; DLR) is, together with the Japanese company Yamaha Corporation, developing special vehicle systems based on thermoelectric effects.
Climate change, digitalisation, Industry 4.0 and transformation of the energy and traffic systems – these central societal responsibilities will be at the heart of the research conducted by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) in 2017. DLR will present the focus of this year's research and some selected projects at the New Year’s press conference on 26 January 2017 in Berlin.
Scientists from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR), together with partners, have compiled a guide to calculate the yield from a solar power plant. For the first time, the guideline offers comprehensive and standardised calculation bases within the solar thermal industry that meet the high requirements of project financing.
A test simulating crashes between high-speed trains, hunting for clouds in West Africa, the maiden flight of a four-passenger fuel cell aircraft – 2016 at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) has been a year of numerous research highlights.
On behalf of Greenpeace International, researchers at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) have analysed what the energy supply in Brazil could be like by 2050 if the accelerated expansion of renewable energies and efficiency measures can be structured in a sustainable manner.
