Deadline: 08.10.2012
The Desertec Best Paper Award recognizes outstanding academic work related to the development of renewable energy in North Africa, the Middle East and Europe. Last year, more than fifty students and young researchers from this region applied for the award. The authors of the four top papers were invited to Dii's 2011 conference in Cairo where they received their awards and had the opportunity to present their work. Six further best authors received free entrance to the conference.

Do you wish to participate? Dii is happy to announce the opening of the call for paper for the Desertec Best Paper Award 2012. Please read the selection criteria carefully.

Who can apply

All students or young researchers studying/researching at a university or research center based in North Africa, the Middle East or Europe are invited to participate in the award, regardless of degree level. Students who have recently graduated, and whose paper has been written since 2009, are also eligible for the award. The paper can be related to a published article, a Bachelor, Master or PhD thesis, or an independent research.

Paper subject

The paper should ideally address one of the following topics:

• Financing large-scale renewable energy projects – what are the success factors? How to strengthen local financial markets in MENA?
• Regional cooperation in MENA countries – best practices and perspectives
• Regulatory challenges to cross-border transmission lines – how to address these challenges?
• Transmission lines – status of HVDC technology and perspectives, operational issues and aspects of meshed HVDC supergrids
• Connecting North Africa and the Middle East with Europe – how can an integrated EUMENA power system be achieved?
• Benefits of large-scale renewable energy projects and of an integrated system
• Public awareness and social acceptance of renewable energy in general
• Wind storm protection techniques
• Generation plant water consumption reduction techniques
• Papers addressing other Dii related topics will also be taken into consideration.

The award

The authors of the 4 best papers will receive free entrance to the 3rd Dii Desert Energy Conference from 7th - 9th of November 2012 in Berlin and all travel expenses will be covered. Furthermore, the winners´ papers will be published on the Dii website and they will also have the opportunity to present a brief summary of their work during the conference. A further 6 authors will receive free entrance to the conference.

The submission materials should include:
• Executive summary: 4 pages (Font: Arial 11), full version of the study should be available upon request
• Completed form with your contact data and name of your university/research center. You will find the submission form in attachment.
• Motivation letter: 1 page (Font: Arial 11) answering the following questions: Why is your work relevant for Desertec? Why do you want to participate/present your results at the conference?

• Your CV

Please submit your application in English, and in PDF form, no later than 8th October 2012 to Noëlie Vegas (vegas(at), Tel: +49 89 340 77 05 82).

Im Focus: Hyperspektrale Bildgebung zur 100%-Inspektion von Oberflächen und Schichten

„Mehr sehen, als das Auge erlaubt“, das ist ein Anspruch, dem die Hyperspektrale Bildgebung (HSI) gerecht wird. Die neue Kameratechnologie ermöglicht, Licht nicht nur ortsaufgelöst, sondern simultan auch spektral aufgelöst aufzuzeichnen. Das bedeutet, dass zur Informationsgewinnung nicht nur herkömmlich drei spektrale Bänder (RGB), sondern bis zu eintausend genutzt werden.

Das Fraunhofer IWS Dresden entwickelt eine integrierte HSI-Lösung, die das Potenzial der HSI-Technologie in zuverlässige Hard- und Software überführt und für...

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
