The Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) and Japan’s Gifu University have joined forces to collaborate closely in energy research. Projects will focus on the intelligent int egration of photovoltaics into the grid, production forecasts, and green power-to-gas (P2G®) energy storage.
The idea behind this partnership in s cience is to accelerate the technology transfer in both countries, thereby helping to reshape the energy landscape after Fukushima. The new coalition is built on solid ground: Both partners conduct research in the same fields and their skill-sets are a good match. The agreement to cooperate was reached in late March during a visit in Japan.
