The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems
(Institut für Solare Energiesysteme, ISE) develops
materials, components and processes for sus-
tainable energy supply based on renewable en-
ergy sources. In the area of electric mobility, we
work on innovative solutions for the integration of
electric vehicles into the power grid and, togeth-
er with partners from the automobile and utility
industries, components and systems for energy
management at the vehicle-to-grid interface, as
well as power electronics and controllers for bidi-
rectional charging systems. We also develop bat-
tery and fuel cell systems for electric and plug-in
vehicles. Current research projects address the
grid-compliant integration of vehicles and the
support for grid stability within an environment
of highly fluctuating renewable energy sources.
We also work on intelligent interfaces to building
energy management systems and the appropri-
ate communication technologies and protocols.
The institute
s key areas are:
• Model-based grid simulation
• Energy management software and operating
control algorithms
• Smart charging infrastructure components
for future-proof grid integration
• Highly efficient conductive and inductive
charging systems
• Bidirectional grid integration of mobile
storage units for improving grid stability
• Innovative and efficient battery systems
for stationary and mobile applications and
battery management systems
• Testing, modelling and simulating battery
and fuel cell systems
• Smart grid information and communication
technologies
• Electrolysis and hydrogen filling stations
