“One can speculate that hydrogen opponents were at work”

3. June 2022

In a way, hydrogen is like electricity. You can’t tell by looking at electrons whether they were produced by photovoltaic or coal-fired power plants. Similarly with hydrogen: you can’t tell whether the atoms were produced with renewables. For electricity, there have been corresponding guarantees of origin for a long time. For hydrogen and its derivatives, […]

Industry partner meeting of GES

3. June 2022

Synthetic fuels based on climate-friendly hydrogen are an important pillar for meeting the global climate and energy challenges. They can contribute significantly to the reduction of emissions and complete climate neutralisation of the 1.3 billion vehicles with combustion engines worldwide. They can also be used for individual heating and cooling solutions. This was one of […]

GES at CCUS Workshop of UNIDO in Vienna

3. June 2022

The objective of the workshop was to gain an overview of ongoing activities in the CCUS (Carbon Capture Utilization & Storage) field worldwide, especially for developing and emerging countries. The aim was to find approaches on how UNIDO can contribute to accelerating and scaling up the technology.

New GES factsheet: Production of hydrogen

3. June 2022

The conclusion: Only when low- CO2 hydrogen can be produced at comparable prices to grey hydrogen will business models emerge and the market ramp-up accelerate. Until then, state regulation and further investments in the development of this future technology are needed. An important player in the production of electrolysers is China, where production is massively […]

GES-Factsheet: Carbon Capture and Storage / Usage (CCS / CCU)

6. May 2022
,

Our conclusion: CCS and CCU are important tools in the fight against the climate crisis and represent opportunities that should be seized. Currently, 150 million tonnes of CO2 are removed from the atmosphere every year. In 2050, it will have to be many times that amount if – as is to be expected – fossil […]

Update Strategy Statement: Dii Desert Energy – Global Energy Solutions

6. May 2022
, , , , , , , , ,

The world of energy has changed significantly in recent months. As a result of the war in Ukraine, focus of public discussion is increasingly on energy security. The import of fossil fuels from Russia is (currently) no longer an option. The search for alternatives is in full swing. This is also giving renewables a strong […]

Easter package: Electricity will become even more expensive

6. May 2022

The share of renewables in electricity generation in Germany is to be at least 80 percent in 2030. This is a central promise of the so-called Easter Package presented by Economics Minister Robert Habeck. GES has done the math and concludes that the target cannot be achieved. Unfortunately, there are considerable gaps in the paper […]

Position paper of the Board of Trustees of Global Energy Solutions

1. April 2022

An excerpt: “We welcome the flexible cycle model pursued by the association, which does not name fossil fuels per se as the core problem, but the burning of these fossil fuels in such way that CO2 is released into the atmosphere. As far as possible this must be prevented. Hence, the focus is on technical […]
