Sector Coupling (SEKO)

Strategies and technologies for the climate-friendly networking of energy systems are the subject of research in the large-scale real laboratory. Here, the interaction of electricity, mobility, heat and chemical energy sources is tested and optimised.

We become aware of how much we depend on sustainable and flexible energy supply when the wind doesn't blow and the sun doesn't shine but all the computers and machines are switched on in the morning.
Therefore, Sector coupling - SEKO for short - takes up the challenge of researching the intelligent linking of electricity, mobility, gas, heating and cooling. SEKO combines the Living Lab Energy Campus with the large-scale research infrastructure of the Energy Lab 2.0 and thus provides answers to the big questions of the energy transition.
