Innovation project

Safe home storage for decentralized power supply

KIT researchers have developed a battery management system for stationary home storage systems in cooperation with RCT Power GmbH. The system ensures the operation of the power storage units and allows efficient use of renewable energy for own consumption.

In the course of time

The constant development of man and technology is preceded by countless harbingers and impulses of change. Technology transfer at KIT is also part of this change and we strive to adapt to changing habits in the best possible way.
The newsletter RESEARCH TO BUSINESS was launched in 2003 and supplemented by an online technology exchange in 2009 to provide companies with simple access to KIT know-how and inventions – focusing on the initiation of cooperation between science and industry and the commercialization of protected research results.
In accordance with the guiding principle "Digital First", this year we are systematically converting the information offers around RESEARCH TO BUSINESS to digital media. In addition to a compact e-mail newsletter, a technology alert and an annual edition are waiting for you. Stay up-to-date with the new subscription options!
