Forschungszentrum Jülich at Hannover Messe 2017

Jülich/Hannover, 21 April 2017 – Hydrogen is set to play a central role in the energy system of the future. It enables large amounts of renewable energy to be reliably stored over longer periods. Jülich researchers are set to demonstrate the fundamental components involved in the production and use of the versatile energy carrier at this year’s Hannover Messe (24–28 April 2017) under the slogan "Sector coupling: conducting research for an integrated energy system". At exhibition stand D68 in hall 27, they will inform visitors about the progress being made in the development of fuel cells and hydrogen electrolysers. In addition, Forschungszentrum Jülich will be at the North Rhine-Westphalia joint stand (stand B30, hall 2) where it will present its engineering and mechatronics expertise. This will include the showcasing of a special vacuum chamber as an example of tailor-made equipment and instruments used to conduct cutting-edge research. The Jülich Supercomputing Centre will also be represented at Hannover Messe: films about the Jülich computer experts’ complex simulations will be on show at the InnoTruck mobile exhibition. The films demonstrate the functioning of the human brain and global climate simulations.
