Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung
Baden-Württemberg (solar and hydrogen
energy research center) is a not for profit
organization. The Division 3 is active in
research and development of Electrochemical
Energy Storage and Energy Conversion Systems.
In 2002 ZSW had 140 employees by an annual
turnover amounted to 15 million €.
The ZSW develops PEM-fuel cells up to 10
kW. Furthermore we built up a fuel cell
test center with in cooperation with partner
constructed test benches. In cooperation
with the Viessmann company we're developping
a 2 kW PEM-fuel cell domestic-system. Another
system generated by the ZSW is a 2 kW PEM-power
at HANNOVER FAIR 2002:
On the Hannover Fair 2002 we show different
designs of PEM-fuel cells, DMFC's and complete
fuel cell systems. We also present possibilities
of our new ZSW-fuel cell test center in
The Portable 2 kW-Power
Generating System presented to a guest by
Klaus Steinhart. It is a System developed
for educational use and research.
