The development of a hydrogen economy requires the availability of sufficient transport capacities. How a future hydrogen network in Eastern Germany could be designed to meet the demand and transit requirements until 2045 is investigated in an EWI study.
Innovative climate protection contracts could secure and promote investments in energy-efficient building refurbishment or heating technology. In doing so, they address two key obstacles, a new EWI study shows.
European and national climate targets require a much faster expansion of renewables and H2-ready gas-fired power plants. The sectoral target for the energy sector could be undercut by 20 Mt CO₂e. as a new EWI analysis shows.
Due to global economic recovery, coal-fired power generation reached a new all-time high in 2021. This and more is shown by the IEA study “Coal 2021 – Analysis and forecast to 2024”, to which two EWI researchers contributed.
