Sector Coupling in the Neighborhood – The Key to the Energy Transition?

The smarter E Podcast Episode 87 | March 31, 2022 | Language: German

According to the United Nations, 57% of the world's population already lives in metropolitan areas, and they account for 75% of global CO2 emissions, most of it in the building and transport sectors. But cities also offer enormous potential for saving energy and emissions, whether in buildings themselves or through synergy effects between buildings, industry and transport. So does the key to the energy transition lie in cities and neighborhoods? Which solutions promise rapid and sustainable success? And how can they be financed? We talk about this with Dr. Claudia van Laak, head of the office, and Dr. Karsten Schmidt, deputy chairman of the board of Open District Hub e. V.

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.
