GIP AG fördert studentisches Projekt zu grünem Wasserstoff in Namibia

Mit Startschuss im Mai 2023 unterstützt die GIP in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Verein 3E4Africa ein studentisches Forschungsprojekt in Namibia. Der gemeinnützige Verein 3E4Africa wurde von deutschen und afrikanischen Studenten der RWTH Aachen mit der Zielsetzung Education, Empowerment & Ecofriendliness u. a. zur Förderung nachhaltiger Innovationen in Afrika gegründet. Dazu fördert 3E4A afrikanische Studenten und Forscher bei der Teilnahme an Forschungsprojekten zur Entwicklung von lokalen und nachhaltigen Lösungen für die Energiewende, den Klimawandel und dessen Folgen in Afrika. Namibia eignet sich aufgrund der Größe und hohen Sonneneinstrahlung ideal für die Produktion regenerativer Energien. Grüne Energie in Form von Wasserstoff, der durch Elektrolyse mittels regenerativem Strom aus Wasserkraft erzeugt wird, kann dabei auch als Exportgut dienen. Namibia baut daher zeitnah Kapazitäten zur Produktion grünen Wasserstoffs auf. Aufgrund der geringen Energiedichte bietet sich darüber hinaus die Weiterverwertung von Wasserstoff zu grünem Ammoniak an. Grüner Ammoniak kann nicht nur als Energieträger oder Treibstoff verwendet werden, sondern auch als Ausgangsprodukt für Düngemittel dienen. Genau dort greift das durch die GIP unterstützte studentische Förderprojekt der 3E4A an. Das Ziel des Projektes ist es, die Wirtschaftlichkeit und Wirksamkeit von ökologisch nachhaltigen Ammoniakderivaten, u. a. auf Basis von grünem Wasserstoff, für Düngemittel in der Region Omusati in Namibia zu untersuchen. Das Projektteam wird in enger Zusammenarbeit mit dem Namibian Green Hydrogen Research Institute (NGHRI) arbeiten. Dies trägt sowohl zur Nachwuchsförderung im Bereich der Herstellung von grünem Wasserstoff als Kraftstoff in Namibia bei, als auch zur Entwicklung erneuerbarer Energieinfrastrukturen in Afrika. Wir freuen uns sehr, Teil dieses spannenden Projektes zu sein, und nachhaltige Innovationen lokal in Afrika fördern zu können.

Xyna Ad Astra

Under this motto, GIP Exyr GmbH, a 100% subsidiary of GIP AG, hosted XynaCom on 14.06.2022 at the Kulturzentrum, Mainz. In the morning, exciting workshops were held, which provided an insight into selected projects. New employees were also welcomed and introduced. One of the highlights of the event was the presentation by Dr. Alexander Ebbes, who announced the initial open source publishing, the first release of Xyna Factory on GitHub under Apache license. “For Xyna to be successful, out there in the wild, we have to reinvent it, reposition it in a new and contemporary way." This quote from Dr. Alexander Ebbes shows that the tool is no longer limited in its potential and can now develop further. This also changes the mindset of the GIP, which thus also looks to a new future. Afterwards, Dr. Bernd Reifenhäuser, as initiator, announced the foundation of the Future Networking Research Alliance. The goal of the alliance is to lay the foundations for future networks and software-defined networks through cooperative research. The focus will be on software-defined, resilient and secure networks as well as 6G and the Internet of Everything (IoE). The entire article by Dr. Bernd Reifenhäuser on the founding of the alliance can be found on LinkedIn. In addition to GIP AG, the alliance is currently formed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Trick and Prof. Dr. Armin Lehmann from the Telecommunications Networks Research Group at the University Of Applied Science Frankfurt, as well as Prof. Dr. Martin Stiemerling and Prof. Dr. Michael von Rüden from the Department of Computer Science at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences. It is completed by Dr. Alexander Ebbes, who represents GIP Exyr GmbH. By forming the alliance, GIP has significantly strengthened its research in the areas of 5G, 6G and Internet of Everything (IoE). By jointly applying and participating in research funding activities, the alliance will be able to fund challenging and high-risk research in the future. The last presentation of XynaCom by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Trick covered the technology of 5th generation mobile networks. At the end of the event, a copy of the book "5G: An Introduction to 5th Generation Mobile Networks" by Prof. Dr. Trick was raffled off to all participating guests. In addition to all the interesting presentations, the XynaCom was a fitting event to also celebrate the coming together of the employee:s in a larger setting since the beginning of the Corona Pandemic. We look back on this beautiful and eventful day with pleasure.

Founding of the research alliance Future Networks

On the initiative of Dr. Bernd Reifenhäuser, GIP AG, the Future Networks research alliance was founded at XynaCom on June 14, 2022, together with Prof. Ulrich Trick and Prof. Armin Lehmann, Telecommunications Networks Research Group of the University of Applied Science Frankfurt am Main, and Dr. Alexander Ebbes, GIP Exyr GmbH.  Among the founding members, who unfortunately could not attend XynaCom on June 14, are Prof. Martin Stiemerling, Prof. Stefan Valentin and Prof. Michael von Rüden of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt. The objective of the alliance is to lay the foundations for future networks and software-defined networks through cooperative research. The focus will be on software-defined, resilient and secure networks as well as 6G and the Internet of Everything (IoE). Current global political developments in particular show that resilience and cyber security are becoming central for networks, as lifelines for our future. But also to be able to counter climate change with technical measures, the stronger networking of people, data, things and processes through the IoE will be inevitable. The next generation of mobile communications, 6G, will offer new dimensions for wireless networking, e.g., with special purpose networks, and thus open up new potential for IoE innovations. Alongside the future Internet of Everything, energy supply will form the backbone of our society. IoE and energy supply are closely linked, so this aspect will also be the subject of the research alliance. The alliance is to be expanded to include medium-sized technology suppliers and providers of all sizes. A central task of the alliance is the successful acquisition of national and European research funds in order to be able to finance these breakthrough innovations.

GIP receives patent protection in the USA for virtualization of power grids

The US patent has granted the extension of the scope of protection of the GIP patent US 10,361,564 B2: now not only the packet-based CrossBar, called QBar, as a dedicated network node is protected, but also the embodiment of this as a virtual or logical QBar for the distribution of electrical power is included in the scope of protection. With this technology, it is now possible to virtualize and highly dynamically segment power networks. In particular, this technology allows virtual overlay networks to be realized for packet-based power transmission on standard power networks. Then a quantum grid based on standard power grids that is divided into cells can be formed. These cells can exchange power with each other on a packet basis using the virtual QBar technology. A particular advantage of this cell-based Quantum Grid is the firewall function, which prevents a large-scale spread of a blackout and at the same time offers the possibility of operating individual cells in island mode and then interconnecting them again to form an overall grid without the usual problems of "black start".

Professor and recipient of the Federal Cross of Merit: Prof. Dr. Peter Beckmann turns 90

CONGRATULATION Digitization pioneer, physicist, honorary chairman of the supervisory board of the Mainz-based company GIP AG Gesellschaft für Industriephysik and long-time member of the University of Mainz: Prof. Dr. Peter Beckmann is well-known and respected in the scientific and business world. On Sunday (20.6.) he turns 90 years. Left Prof. Dr. Beckmann and right Dr. Reifenhäuser Prof. Dr. Beckmann @ Institute for Physics of the Johannes Gutenberg University-Mainz Early on, Peter Beckmann knew he wanted to devote his life to science and deliver groundbreaking insights. Born in Münster, Germany, he earned his doctorate in physics at the age of only 27. He went on to work with top physicists, pioneers of quantum field theory and Nobel laureates. In 1962, his stellar career took off further when he was awarded the honorary title of associate professor, Extraordinarius, for Theoretical Nuclear Physics by the University of Mainz. Only one year later, the University of Mainz handed him the Chair of Theoretical Physics.  Peter Beckmann established himself as a valued and progressive member of the university, serving as dean of his faculty and vice president of the university, among other positions, during his 43-year professorial career in Mainz. In doing so, he represented the University of Mainz both legally and personally and was the contact person for all students in the physics department. As one of the first professors in Germany, he provided his lecture notes online for his students as early as 1996 and has since been considered a pioneer of digitization. At the age of 63, in 1994, he was awarded the Federal Cross of Merit 1st Class for his commitment to society. Prof. Dr. Beckmann @ GIP Prof. Beckmann has accompanied GIP since he and the founder of GIP, Dr. Bernd Reifenhäuser, established a joint research cooperation in the field of industrial applications of nonlinear dynamics and analysis in 1992. As part of this cooperation, Prof. Beckmann supervised a number of doctoral dissertations. "One of them is that of Dr. Alexander Ebbes, now the CTO of GIP", Dr. Reifenhäuser recounts. "His doctorate was in many ways groundbreaking for further research and development." Dr. Ebbes' doctorate focused on the application of nonlinear analysis methods in the field of high-performance computing, which is one of Prof. Beckmann's main scientific areas of interest.  So when GIP was transformed into an AG, it was natural that Prof. Beckmann became a member of the supervisory board. There he represented the research & development department for 10 years and supported the board of directors, Dr. Reifenhäuser, in word and deed in his work. In addition to Prof. Beckmann's scientific and technical expertise, the Supervisory Board of GIP also benefited from his legal experience in committee work as Vice Chancellor of the University of Mainz. At the age of 78, Prof. Beckmann decided to retire from active operational supervisory board business. However, the jubilarian is still Honorary Chairman today and continues to attend every Supervisory Board meeting. "Prof. Beckmann is a shining example for me, a symbol of further development and an inspiration to constantly reinvent oneself." Just recently, Prof. Beckmann developed an innovative solution for digitizing the handling and recording of Supervisory Board meetings. Dr. Reifenhäuser is very grateful for Prof. Beckmann at his side: "He has a bright and attentive mind that provides very helpful input to the Supervisory Board on current developments every time and provides strong support for me."  We sincerely wish Peter Beckmann the very best on his birthday and thank him for working with us for almost 30 years. We look forward to the years to come! For his 90th birthday, the GIP team wishes him all the best, happiness and, above all, good health.
