New charging points for electric cars installed in Adlershof

On 14 May 2020, two charging points for electric cars were installed near the BESSY II main building. But not only the hybrid company car fleet is to be charged here. Soon, employees will also have the opportunity to charge their private cars at one of the charging points.

"I am very pleased that we were able to remove the legal obstacles and that the first pillars are now in place at HZB. Two charging points will also be installed at the Wannsee location in a few weeks," says energy manager Carina Hanke from the FM-T department. This should also promote the electromobility of employees* who commute to work by car - a trend that will certainly continue in the coming years. One charging point with two charging points each is reserved for the HZB company car fleet, the other charging point will be available to employees.

The "fuel" will come from the green electricity that HZB obtains from its electricity supplier. Billing and payment are conveniently carried out with your own smartphone via an app. The amount of the fee due for this is currently being determined. We will inform you as soon as the charging points are also available for private vehicles.

    Nanodiamonds can be activated as photocatalysts with sunlight
    Nanodiamond materials have potential as low-cost photocatalysts. But until now, such carbon nanoparticles required high-energy UV light to become active. The DIACAT consortium has therefore produced and analysed variations of nanodiamond materials. The work shows: If the surface of the nanoparticles is occupied by sufficient hydrogen atoms, even the weaker energy of blue sunlight is sufficient for excitation. Future photocatalysts based on nanodiamonds might be able to convert CO2 or N2 into hydrocarbons or ammonia with sunlight.

    European pilot line for innovative photovoltaic technology based on tandem solar cells
    PEPPERONI, a four-year Research and Innovation project co-funded under Horizon Europe and jointly coordinated by Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and Qcells, will support Europe in reaching its renewable energy target of climate neutrality by 2050. The project will help advance perovskite/silicon tandem photovoltaics (PV) technology’s journey towards market introduction and mass manufacturing.
