DLR additionally has important involvement within the growth of wind, hydroelectric and solar energy stations. But what explicit adjustments will also be expected right here?
The DLR Executive Board Member chargeable for Energy and Transport analysis, Ulrich Wagner, supplies perception into long run potentialities.
In June 2010, DLR, at the side of 30 different professionals, offered a world power situation commissioned by way of Greenpeace International and the European Renewable Energy Council (EREC). By 2050, as much as 80 p.c of power wishes may well be lined by way of renewable assets, and this might lower emissions of carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gasoline, hugely.
“The important thing is not just to build renewable energy power stations as we go along, but also to raise the efficiency levels of conventional power stations,” says Wagner. In parallel with the growth of renewables, those coal and gas-fired energy stations are scheduled to stay in carrier for a few years.
