Electric mobility: How the sun gets into the tank

Anyone who consistently thinks through the transformation of energy supply to climate-friendly technologies must not stop at the transport sector. On the contrary: globally, large parts of CO2 emissions are still attributable to transport. There is still a lot of untapped potential for climate protection – and photovoltaics plays a central role in this. In […]Read More

Solar thermal provides clean heat for local heating networks

In the electricity sector, energy system transformation has already made good progress in many countries. However, in the heating sector, on the other hand, there is often still much to be done before the urgently needed decarbonisation. Concepts are therefore increasingly in demand in which local district heating networks are no longer fed with fossil […]Read More

Solar energy learns to swim!

Water surfaces, especially those of industrially used waters, are ideally suited for the use of solar energy. In recent months, so-called “floating PV” has developed into a new and dynamically growing market segment. In China, the Netherlands, but also in Germany there are now first applications that offer great advantages. For example, “Floating PV” systems […]Read More

Let’s talk about energy efficiency in households

Which devices consume the most #power in an average household? Especially in times of #stayathome orders due to #Covid-19 this is an interesting question to ask! Efficient devices can be found through energy efficiency labels which are commonly used in Europe. So watch out before you buy a new device, make sure it is A+ […]Read More

Energy policy and regulation is powerful

Join in: In order to incentivize carbon mitigation and foster the energy transition the number of countries with renewable energy regulatory policies and carbon pricing policies is steadily moving upward. Does your country already belong to the increasing number? The number of countries with renewable energy regulatory policies and carbon pricing policies is increasing. In […]Read More

Renewables create jobs

Eleven million … and counting! One of many benefits of the energy transition is its job potential. Solar, Wind, bioenergy and other renewable energy facilities create jobs along the whole value chain, starting from equipment production (e.g. solar cells, wind turbines) to distribution, installation and – finally –  operation and maintenance. In order to foster […]Read More

Electric cars are on the rise

Mobility: the forgotten part of the energy transition? Well, not anymore … Often the mobility sector is the forgotten part of the energy transition. But not anymore: It is widely known that the emissions of the transport sector need to be reduced in order to reach climate goals. The global stock of electric cars is […]Read More
