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: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Hochpräzise Verschaltung in der Hirnrinde

Es ist noch immer weitgehend unbekannt, wie die komplexen neuronalen Netzwerke im Gehirn aufgebaut sind. Insbesondere in der Hirnrinde der Säugetiere, wo Sehen, Denken und Orientierung berechnet werden, sind die Regeln, nach denen die Nervenzellen miteinander verschaltet sind, nur unzureichend erforscht. Wissenschaftler um Moritz Helmstaedter vom Max-Planck-Institut für Hirnforschung in Frankfurt am Main und Helene Schmidt vom Bernstein-Zentrum der Humboldt-Universität in Berlin haben nun in dem Teil der Großhirnrinde, der für die räumliche Orientierung zuständig ist, ein überraschend präzises Verschaltungsmuster der Nervenzellen entdeckt.

Wie die Forscher in Nature berichten (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005), haben die...

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Tiny lasers from a gallery of whispers

New technique promises tunable laser devices

Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...

Im Focus: Wundermaterial Graphen: Gewölbt wie das Polster eines Chesterfield-Sofas

Graphen besitzt extreme Eigenschaften und ist vielseitig verwendbar. Mit einem Trick lassen sich sogar die Spins im Graphen kontrollieren. Dies gelang einem HZB-Team schon vor einiger Zeit: Die Physiker haben dafür eine Lage Graphen auf einem Nickelsubstrat aufgebracht und Goldatome dazwischen eingeschleust. Im Fachblatt 2D Materials zeigen sie nun, warum dies sich derartig stark auf die Spins auswirkt. Graphen kommt so auch als Material für künftige Informationstechnologien infrage, die auf der Verarbeitung von Spins als Informationseinheiten basieren.

Graphen ist wohl die exotischste Form von Kohlenstoff: Alle Atome sind untereinander nur in der Ebene verbunden und bilden ein Netz mit sechseckigen Maschen,...
