Exhibition "Akku Alle?! - Electric mobility and energy storage"

Ausstellung
Exhibition Akku Alle?!
18 June - 27 September 2020
Münsterplatzes 25

Due to the developing updates and concerns related to the coronavirus, the exhibition was canceled. We are currently planning to host the event in 2021.

The exhibition "Akku Alle?! - Electromobility and Energy Storage" shows the complete spectrum of battery research in Ulm. In addition to a "blackout" simulation for Ulm in 2028, which simulates a six-day power outage in the Danube-Illertal, the exhibition will feature outstanding exhibits from all the scientific institutes involved. This includes DLR's hydrogen aircraft Hy4. What is special about the model aircraft is that the real, fuel cell-powered, four-seater Hy4 passenger aircraft actually flies along the Danube above the rooftops of Ulm during the exhibition.
