France's wind-energy players go to Vienna for EWEA 2013

05.02.2013
EWEA will give 20 French-based companies an opportunity, under the Windustry France banner, to put their technology and innovations on display, thanks to a 300-m² national pavilion organised by UBIFRANCE, France's export-support agency, in partnership with France's Wind Energy Association (FEE) and Renewable Energy Association (SER). The EWEA trade show is the key annual event for wind-energy professionals, taking place in Vienna (Austria) from 4 to 7 February 2013.

The aim of the participating French-based groups and SMEs is to showcase their expertise in what is a growing industry, and to meet decision-makers from all over the world on the French Pavilion (Hall A, Booths E20, E30 and F20) at EWEA. The trade show is taking place between 4 and 7 February of this year in the Austrian capital.

In 2012, Europe exceeded the 100,000-MW mark in terms of power generated by wind turbines: this represented close to 7% of Europe's overall electricity consumption. Several countries have announced massive development plans for the 2013-2020 period, with Denmark (6,000 MW to be installed), Germany (50,000 MW) and Spain (40,000 MW) in the lead. These three countries have historically been at the forefront of wind-energy technology in Europe.

In France, wind-power generation that is fully connected to the grid, at 1 January 2013, exceeded 7,000 MW. France aims to supply 23% of the overall energy consumed domestically from renewable sources by 2020. For wind energy, this represents an installed capacity of 25,000 MW, made up of 19,000 MW on shore and 6,000 MW off shore. Thus, wind power alone is set to supply over 10% of France's electricity consumption by 2020.

Thanks to a host of initiatives from various regional players, the French wind-energy industry is expanding fast. Institutions such as Bourgogne Développement, Somme Développement, the Regional Council of Picardy, the International Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Picardy, the University of Picardy, and Le Havre Développement will be attending EWEA 2013 in support of their region's businesses in the wind-energy sector.

Im Focus: Neue Bildgebungsmethode macht Sauerstoffgehalt in Gewebe sichtbar

Wie blickt man in den menschlichen Körper, ohne zu operieren? Die Suche nach neuen Lösungen ist nach wie vor eine wichtige Aufgabe der Medizinforschung. Eine der großen Herausforderungen auf diesem Feld ist es, Sauerstoff in Gewebe sichtbar zu machen. Ein Team um Prof. Vasilis Ntziachristos, Inhaber des Lehrstuhls für Biologische Bildgebung an der Technischen Universität München (TUM) und Direktor des Instituts für Biologische und Medizinische Bildgebung am Helmholtz Zentrum München, hat dazu einen neuen Ansatz entwickelt.

Einen Königsweg, um den Sauerstoffgehalt in Gewebe sichtbar zu machen, schien es bislang nicht zu geben. Viele unterschiedliche Verfahren wurden ausprobiert,...

Göttinger Hörforschung mit neuen Erkenntnissen: Das Ohr setzt Synapsen mit verschiedenen Eigenschaften ein, um unterschiedlich lauten Schall zu verarbeiten. Forschungsergebnisse veröffentlicht in der Fachzeitschrift „Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences“

Der menschliche Hörsinn verarbeitet einen immensen Bereich an Lautstärken. Wie schafft es das Ohr, etwa über eine Million Schalldruck-Variationen zu...

Im Focus: Ultrakompakter Photodetektor

Der Datenverkehr wächst weltweit. Glasfaserkabel transportieren die Informationen mit Lichtgeschwindigkeit über weite Entfernungen. An ihrem Ziel müssen die optischen Signale jedoch in elektrische Signale gewandelt werden, um im Computer verarbeitet zu werden. Forscher am KIT haben einen neuartigen Photodetektor entwickelt, dessen geringer Platzbedarf neue Maßstäbe setzt: Das Bauteil weist eine Grundfläche von weniger als einem Millionstel Quadratmillimeter auf, ohne die Datenübertragungsrate zu beeinträchtigen, wie sie im Fachmagazin Optica nun berichten. (DOI: 10.1364/OPTICA.3.000741)

Die neuentwickelten Photodetektoren, die weltweit kleinsten Photodetektoren für die optische Datenübertragung, eröffnen die Möglichkeit, durch integrierte...

Im Focus: Self-assembling nano inks form conductive and transparent grids during imprint

Transparent electronics devices are present in today’s thin film displays, solar cells, and touchscreens. The future will bring flexible versions of such devices. Their production requires printable materials that are transparent and remain highly conductive even when deformed. Researchers at INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials have combined a new self-assembling nano ink with an imprint process to create flexible conductive grids with a resolution below one micrometer.

To print the grids, an ink of gold nanowires is applied to a substrate. A structured stamp is pressed on the substrate and forces the ink into a pattern. “The...

Im Focus: Neues Forschungsnetzwerk für Mikrobiomforschung

Mikroben und Viren haben weitreichenden Einfluss auf die Gesundheit von Mensch und Tier. Die neu gegründete "Austrian Microbiome Initiative" (AMICI) fördert die nationale Mikrobiomforschung und vernetzt MedizinerInnen und ForscherInnen verschiedenster Fachrichtungen zur Nutzung von Synergien.

Bakterien, Archaeen, Pilze, Viren – Milliarden von Mikroorganismen leben in Symbiose in und auf Menschen und Tieren. Diese mikroskopisch kleinen Lebewesen...
