Electricity produced by renewables is supposed to become the most important source of energy in the future. But the German market design needs to be adapted to further integrate renewables into the energy system and to reach the climate targets of 2030. In the Trialog “Electricity market 2.0.
The energy system is becoming more and more decentralized in many areas. In addition to the few hundred power plants that have supplied Germany earlier, many small producers have now emerged. Whether photovoltaic roof systems or wind turbines – the producers are mostly cooperatives or private individuals, so-called
The energy system is becoming increasingly interconnected and digital. In addition to opportunities, this also entails risks. How can critical energy infrastructures be redesigned to create a secure and smart energy system? At the seventh Energy Trialog, experts of the academy project “Energy Systems of the Future” discussed
On our Trialog last Friday we discussed controversially on the topic “Correctly assess and use bioenergy potentials, reduce side effects. How to design a long-term bioenergy strategy? “. You can find the press release here (in German only).
Biomass is currently contributing more to the supply of energy in Germany than all other renewable energy sources together and is used in the heat and electricity sector as well as for fuel production. Many studies suggest that an energy transition without bioenergy would become much more difficult
On November 28, 2017 the European Parliament’s Industry and Energy Committee (ITRE) voted for the modification of two directives, which both affect the EU’s energy policy target corridor for 2030: Regarding efficiency they agreed on a 40% efficiency goal until 2030 (compared to 1990) and binding national targets.
Trialog: The governance of the European energy union – between national energy strategies and the Paris Agreement With the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement, two important international sustainability and climate protection agreements were agreed to in 2015. Their core objectives are to limit global
Do we already know enough to decide on tomorrow’s urban mobility? Do we need more electric vehicles or a better public transport? How does autonomous driving change our cities? And who should decide these questions? Find out more in our report on the Trialog “Setting a path for
How will we move within cities in the future? What is the role of new technologies? And how can we set a path for a low-carbon urban mobility while facing a number of uncertainties? These and other questions are up for discussion at the Trialog.
