Exhibition on Electromobility and Energy Storage

Venue/place of exhibition: Münsterplatz 25, 89073 Ulm

Date: 15/04/2021 to 15/07/2021, extension expected

Opening times: daily from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The city of Ulm celebrates the birthday of Albrecht Ludwig Berblinger. On June 24, 2020, he would have been 250 years old: an inventor from Ulm who was as brilliant as he was willing to take risks. Better known as the “Tailor of Ulm”, he went down in history with his failed flight attempt in 1811. The anniversary celebrations “Berblinger 2020” should not only honor his work, but focus on the topics of innovation, ingenuity, courage and an open city society for change.

Between June 2020 and May 2021, the city of Ulm invites you to celebrate with numerous events and cultural events. Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) takes part in the celebrations with its own exhibition at “M25 Münsterplatz 25”, a museum wing next to the Ulm Minster.

Battery Exhibition

The exhibition “Electromobility and Energy Storage” covers the full range of Ulm battery research. For the first time, all scientific institutions involved in battery research in Ulm (Helmholtz Institute Ulm, Cluster of Excellence POLiS, research platform CELEST, German Aerospace Center, Ulm University, Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) hosting an event for the public.

Battery All Exhibition – Electromobility and Energy Storage

In addition to a “Blackout” scenario for Ulm in 2028, which simulates a six-day power outage in the Danube-Iller region, top-class exhibits from all participating scientific institutes are presented. For example the hydrogen aircraft Hy4 of the DLR.

What makes this aircraft model special: The real four-seater Hy4 passenger aircraft powered by a fuel cell actually flies over the roofs of Ulm along the Danube during the exhibition period. The flight of the Hy4 machine therefore realizes exactly the dream of the “Tailor of Ulm” Albrecht Ludwig Berblinger in 1811.
