Gas market, industrial state NRW, municipal utilities, electricity and hydrogen – numerous experts discuss the current energy crisis and its consequences for the energy markets in Germany and Europe at the EWI Energy Conference.
The BMWK Research Network Energy System Analysis bundles funding activities for economy and climate protection in the field of energy system analysis and connects experts. At the 6th annual meeting EWI researchers presented current EWI work.
The German government has extended the operation of three German nuclear power plants until mid-April 2023. EWI analyzes the connection with European gas demand, electricity prices and the availability of French electricity exports.
In its new two-year report, the Council of Experts points to a significant compliance gap with regard to the 2030 climate targets. EWI Director Marc Oliver Bettzüge is part of the panel appointed by the German government.
To achieve the climate change targets, significantly more buildings will have to be renovated. An EWI analysis shows that energy-related refurbishment and heating system replacement can be profitable for older and unrenovated single-family homes.
