As a consequence, a great deal of world-wide effort is going into the development of alternative energy technologies. At present, wind, hydro and geothermal are becoming well established with more niche roles for tidal and solar. The latter technology has two common forms, firstly solar water heating, and secondly photo voltaic (PV) solar electricity generation.

The temperature test system was developed to test lithium-ion cells. Pressure surges caused by a malfunction are drawn off via a reversible pressure-release flap. Nitrogen inertisation serves to reduce the oxygen concentration to ≤ 3 %. This is used for tests which could produce flammable or explosive gas and air or steam and air mixtures.
