With the Test Facility for Thermal Energy Storage in Molten Salt (TESIS), DLR enables the development of storage technologies on an application-oriented and industrial scale.

The DLR Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics in Stuttgart, with further research facilities in Cologne, Ulm and Hamburg, conducts research into the field of efficient energy storage systems that conserve natural resources, and next generation energy conversion technologies with more than 170 scientific and technical employees, engineers and doctoral candidates. The spectrum of activities ranges from theoretical studies to laboratory work for basic research and 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 has been established.
