Would you like to contribute to the energy transition in Germany through your work? Then the Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg (for Renewable Energy) (HI ERN) is the right place for you! The HI ERN is known as the sub-institute IEK-11 at Forschungszentrum Jülich and forms the core of the close partnership between Forschungszentrum Jülich, Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie, and Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg at the Erlangen site. The collaboration relates to the areas of innovative materials and processes for photovoltaic energy systems and hydrogen as a storage and carrier medium for CO2-neutral energy. Support us in researching and developing solutions for the climate-neutral, sustainable, and cost-effective utilization of renewable energies. For more information on HI ERN and its main research areas, please visit https://www.hi-ern.de.

The department “Chemical Hydrogen Storage”, in which you will be assigned at HI ERN, is headed by Prof. Dr. Peter Wasserscheid. It focuses on the further development of a technology for the storage and release of hydrogen using chemical hydrogen carriers (Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier – LOHC for short) with the goal of a sustainable energy economy. As the LOHC system, perhydro-benzyltoluene / benzyltoluene is in particular focus. In the field of chemical hydrogen storage using the aforementioned LOHC system, HI ERN is a world leader and carries out outstanding research work.
The project “Emission-free and highly emission-reduced rail transport on non-electrified tracks”, on which we will work together, is funded by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy and aims at demonstrating the LOHC technology as the energy supply unit of a locomotive.
In the team “Process Units”, headed by Dr.-Ing. Julian Kadar, the scaling of experimental systems from laboratory scale to the above-mentioned technical application will be developed and test rigs for the experimental testing of these will be set up. The efficient interaction of components such as reactor, fuel cell, cooling and heating units and pumps is essential, especially for mobile applications.
