Tomorrow’s economy requires green energy, for the decarbonisation of industrial processes and, therefore, for climate-neutral economic activity. Power grids are the key. After all, they securely transport renewable energy from the producers to the large consumers. 365 days a year, around the clock.
This means that the faster a region achieves its objective of supplying electricity from mostly renewable energy sources, the more attractive it becomes as an industrial base.
By 2032, it should be possible to cover the total electricity consumption within the 50Hertz grid area (i.e. eastern Germany and Hamburg) over the course of a year with100% renewable energy. The secure integration of these high shares of volatile renewable energy into our grid, the system and the market paves the future: for us and for industrial companies in our grid area.
