Interview: The structure of the work programme is in place

Global Energy Solutions (GES) has specified its work programme for the next two years. In an interview, Christof von Branconi, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the association, names the focal points. The challenges of a global energy transition are enormous, and so are the tasks. After all, around 85 percent of the energy used worldwide today comes from… Read More »Interview: The structure of the work programme is in place

Facts and Figures

84.3% This is the share of fossil energy generated globally in 2019. The remaining 15.7 % is made up as follows: Hydropower (6.4 %), nuclear (4.3 %), wind (2.2 %), solar (1.1 %) and others. The path towards a global energy transition is therefore still very long. Mankind will continue to use fossil fuels for a long time.

Direct Air Capture – World’s largest facility goes into operation

Every year, the Swiss start-up Climeworks wants to suck up to 4,000 tonnes of CO2 directly from the air and deposit it underground. Orca, as the plant is called, went into operation on Iceland at the beginning of September. Orca consists of eight large containers that suck in CO2 with the help of fans and filter it out. Climeworks’ plants… Read More »Direct Air Capture – World’s largest facility goes into operation
