The topic of the trip through the whole of Thuringia, with stops at various research and development locations, was "Energy storage: a mainstay for the energy revolution in Thuringia". The final of the tour took place at the CEEC Jena: After a short presentation of the center by Prof. Dr. Ulrich S. Schubert, there was the opportunity to get to know the various research areas at information stands. "The energy transition can only be successful with energy storage systems. Thuringia's research and development landscape is already very well developed and leading in Germany," says Fabian Hoppe, ThEEN CEO and authorized signatory of H.M. Heizkörper GmbH & Co. KG in the run-up to the trip. Reason enough to present the current status of our research projects and to point out perspectives for future developments.
