Florida-Eis Manufaktur - this is how "climate neutral" production works

The smarter E Podcast Episode 64 | September 23, 2021 | Language: German

Many companies today are striving to achieve CO2-neutral production as a contribution to climate protection. This is perhaps particularly difficult for an industry that usually requires a lot of energy, namely ice cream production. First it is cooked, then cooled and frozen. Refrigeration must be maintained until the ice cream reaches the consumer. The Florida Eis Manufaktur in Berlin produces around 30,000 cups of CO2-neutral ice cream every day. The decisive factor here is the use of innovative technologies, especially in the field of renewable energies. Olaf Höhn, Managing Director of Florida Eis GmbH, explains what these technologies are and how climate-neutral production can be achieved.

About Olaf Höhn and Florida Eis

Florida Eis is a Berlin-based ice cream shop chain headquartered in the Spandau district of Berlin. The chain describes its production as CO2-neutral and relies on the use of solar thermal energy, photovoltaics, electric vehicles and much more. After completing his apprenticeship, Olaf Höhn first worked as a manager in his parents' wholesale bakery before buying the "Annelie" café in Spandau in 1984 and reopening it a year later as the "Florida Eiscafé," thus laying the foundation for his company.

EM-Power Europe 2022: A Stable Power Supply With Grid-Stabilizing Inverters

April 20, 2022

Large-scale fossil-fueled power stations and nuclear power plants have been stabilizing the power grid until now but the energy transition is going to change that. The last nuclear reactors in Germany are due to be shut down by the end of 2022. And the plan is to phase out coal altogether by 2030. Before the war in Ukraine, gas-fired power plants were pegged as a transition technology. But now there is no choice but to rethink that strategy.
