ehub combines the demonstrators NEST and move to an energy district, which includes individual energy components, supply grids and real users. ehub is a platform to answer research questions in the energy sector and promote product development.
NEST is structured as a vertical neighbourhood, where new energy concepts can be validated up to district level. It consists of units, which represent energy-producing and –consuming buildings, and a backbone that supplies the units with energy. The backbone consists of storage and conversion technologies as well as distribution grids for electrical, thermal and gas based energy.
move, the demonstrator for future mobility, displays different possibilities for using renewable electricity from PV systems for mobility – in the form of hydrogen, synthetic methane and grid batteries. Here, research on the production and supply of fuels for fuel cell vehicles, gas vehicles and battery-powered vehicles is conducted.
Due to the diversity of the systems, the platform can be used to answer a wide range of energy questions. All details about the systems can be found here.
