Heat Pump, Wallbox & Battery Storage: What Does the New Regulation of §14a EnWG Mean in Practice?

Free Webinar

Tuesday, May 14, 2024 | 11:00am–12:00pm CEST | Webinar Language: German

By 2030, 15 million electric vehicles and 6 million heat pumps are to be connected to the grid in Germany. In order to avoid overloading the electricity grid, an emergency instrument was introduced this year in the form of the provisions of Section 14a of the Energy Industry Act.

Its implementation poses major challenges for grid operators, suppliers, appliance manufacturers and not least the electrical trade: We discuss how the new regulations will be realised technically, what hurdles exist and what will also apply from 2025, with a legal assessment by Anna von Bremen, LL.M., Partner at Osborne Clarke, and a look at the practical side by Sebastian Mahlow, Managing Director of ison GmbH.

The recording and the speakers' presentations are available here on our digital content platform The smarter E Digital.
