Energy Management at Research Infrastructures (2): Parallel session A2
- Serge Claudet (CERN)
Dr Helfried Burckhart (CERN)
The European Laboratory for High Energy Physics CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, is a major consumer of energy with almost 90% of the electric energy being used for the operation of the accelerators. Efforts are being made to further increase the energy efficiency and to reduce the consumption. Practical work concentrates on 3 areas: the CERN campus, the accelerator chain, and re-use of waste...
Mr Thomas Parker (European Spallation Source ESS AB)
ESS will be a long-pulse neutron source powered by a 5MW accelerator. Full operation starts in 2025, first neutrons in 2019. Site decision was made in May 2009, three contenders, "Scandinavia" spiced their winning bid with a "sustainable research facility" applying an energy strategy of "Responsible, Renewable, Recyclable". This is now a written commitment from the host government that the...
Mr David Reinhard (PSI)
PSI has started a project recycling heat out of existing and future cooling circuits. The recycled heat will cover 75% of the PSI need by 2017. The heat will be to the greatest extent recycled directly from radio frequency cooling loops of relatively high temperature. Since the yearly power consumption of the institute is a factor 10 higher than the heat consumption, a further increase of the...
15. Energy management at GSI and FAIR, strategy on energy management, efficiency, sustainability strategy
Mr Jan Lindenberg (GSI)
GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH operates a unique large-scale accelerator for heavy ions. In the coming years the new international accelerator facility FAIR, one of the largest research projects worldwide, will be built at GSI. In the final extension FAIR consists of several heavy ion accelerator rings, experiment storage rings with up to 1,100 meters in circumference, two...
