Recently, the German Constitutional Court dropped a bombshell and announced that, from its point of view, the national climate protection law falls short. Hence, we take a look at how CO2 emissions can be reduced most effectively through a combination of government intervention and free market principles.
A major disadvantage of renewable energy sources is that their energy generation does not always cover the current electricity demand, as it is highly dependent on changing environmental factors like the weather. Connecting these energy sources to a battery storage system can thus help to balance out the fluctuations in energy generation. Widespread deployment of this decentralized flexibility will help renewable energies achieve a breakthrough.
A new report by the independent think tank RethinkX has found that 100% of global electricity could be generated using SWB (solar, wind and batteries) by 2030.
Great news for our environment: the number of new electric cars registered in Germany hit a record high in March 2020.
