      Source: Federal Ministry of Economics and EnergyFederal Minister Robert Habeck is visiting the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) in Berlin today. On site, he finds out about two competence centers for hydrogen and wind energy that BAM operates. As part of its mission to further develop safety in technology and chemistry, BAM focuses on technologies that advance the transformation of the economy and the energy transition. Minister Habeck thanks the employees of BAM for their dedicated work and emphasizes during his visit: " Restructuring our economy is an urgent task of our time – the last few months have made that abundantly clear. To do this, we need innovations that, in addition to more sustainability, environmental and climate protection, also guarantee more safety. BAM is researching this and is thus making an important contribution to the transformation, which it is specifically passing on to science and industry. Above all, BAM's work on hydrogen and wind energy is helping to advance these key technologies of the energy transition. “Together with BAM President Prof. Dr. Ulrich Panne, Minister Habeck signs a target agreement between the BMWK and BAM today, which defines the work priorities and goals for the coming years. The focus here is on future topics such as hydrogen technologies, wind energy, electrical energy storage, 3D printing and nanomaterials. “With the target agreement, we are creating good framework conditions for the work of BAM. In particular, with our two competence centers H2Safety@BAM and Wind@BAM, we can effectively and safely accelerate the energy transition. We are making a contribution to ensuring that future hydrogen pipelines and other infrastructures can be designed to be H2-ready and that the expansion of wind turbines with higher output is technically secure,” says BAM President Prof. Dr. Ulrich Panne. BAM is a scientific and technical higher federal authority in the portfolio of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection with around 1,600 employees. BAM pools its expertise in competence centers. In the H2Safety@BAM competence center, scientists conduct research on the safety of modern hydrogen technologies across the entire value chain and drive the market ramp-up through knowledge and technology transfer. To this end, a test and trial infrastructure that is unique in Germany is being built on twelve square kilometers south of Berlin. The Wind@BAM competence center deals with the longevity and stability of large and powerful wind turbines and researches how large amounts of CO2 can be saved during the construction of such systems.
