Fraunhofer Innovation Cluster »Life Cycle Engineering for Turbomachines«, Berlin/Brandenburg
Turbomachinery producers in the fields of aviation and energy generation are obliged to meet future challenges concerning resource conservation, profitability and aviation safety. Due to the climate change, the energy policy framework requires the reduction of CO2 emissions as well as a higher proportion of renewable energies. The latter calls for more flexible load changes of fossil power plants and therefore of turbomachines. Furthermore, the increasing scarcity of resources concerning materials and fuels constitutes another important challenge. In order to meet these challenges, industry and science have united in the Fraunhofer innovation cluster »Life Cycle Engineering for Turbomachines«.
