Sector coupling – from electricity transition to energy transition
11. July 2016 @ 9:00 - 17:00
The Trialog “Sector coupling – from electricity transition to energy transition” continues the cooperation with the “Energy Systems of the Future (ESYS)” project started in January 2015. The project is a joint initiative of the German scientific academies and is supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. We would like discuss the opportunities and challenges of a stronger connection between the three sectors electricity, heat and transport. Currently an ESYS working group headed by Eberhard Umbach (acatech presidium) is working on this area. The results of the Trialog will be incorporated into the group’s work. For this purpose, selected hypotheses and questions of the working group will be discussed during the Trialog. In addition, we will discuss their relevance and implications for society, which can contribute to common approaches to solving the energy challenges.
