An excursion with short cuts: The itinerary íncludes destinations in Bonn and the south of Cologne. The Institute for Solar Research operates large-scale plants, test rigs and laboratories at three sites in Germany. The DLR solar furnace and the high-powered floodlight in Cologne can provide high-energy radiation for laboratory tests, for example for material tests conducted over a number of days. Research is also being conducted into ceramic materials and thermal storage technologies. One major concern of the solar process engineers is research into processes for producing solar fuels.
On the Klein-Altendorf Campus of Bonn University in Rheinbach in the Rhein-Sieg district research is being conducted into all aspects of sustainable resources. We will also inspect a wood pellet heating system. Wood pellets have now become established as alternatives to gas and oil and are used in commercial properties.
Finally we will visit the “Special Hydrogen Exhibition” at the German Museum in Bonn. Explore one of the energy carriers of the future, from production by renewable energies, storage, distribution and usage the exhibition will explain the hydrogen pillar of the “Energiewende”. Also, concepts for high schools to promote hydrogen and fuel cell related topics will be exhibited. These information can be directly used in practice while test drive fuel cell cars and a shuttle bus on the way back.

Each excursion will also be accompanied by two interpreters and a simultaneous interpretation into English will be provided.
For each excursion provision will be made to cater for the participants. In addition the participants will be given a small food package (beverage/fruit etc.) on the bus. The catering will depend on the respective tour itinerary.
A photographer will document the excursion – on the following day in each case you will be able to download the photos of your excursion at www.energieagentur.nrw and use them free of charge in your press and public relations.
