Zur Übersetzung: Fracking: an option for Germany?

Zur Übersetzung: Options for importing green hydrogen into Germany by 2030 (PDF) 

Zur Übersetzung: Creating Investment Incentives, Providing Reserve Capacity: options for the market integration of renewable energy

Seit dieser Woche liegen drei Publikationen des Akademienprojekts ESYS (Energiesysteme der Zukunft) auch auf Englisch vor. In diesen werden drei verschiedene Aspekte aus dem Energiesektor beleuchtet: Fracking als Option für Deutschland, der Import von grünem Wasserstoff und die Möglichkeiten für die Marktintegration erneuerbarer Energien.

Covering the future demand for hydrogen: ESYS presents options for importing green hydrogen

Hydrogen is an important element that can act as a stepping stone on the pathway to achieving climate neutrality. With a view to decarbonising industry and certain transport sectors in particular, it is a critical strategy alongside direct electrification. However, it will only be possible to meet the high demand for hydrogen anticipated for the future by importing significant amounts. At this stage, it is essential to learn from the past and minimise dependencies. This analysis paper by ESYS experts presents transportation options, considers their advantages and disadvantages and outlines the obstacles and challenges standing in the way of transportation routes and hydrogen partnerships being established.

Fracking: an option for Germany? Science academies identify opportunities, risks and uncertainties

Fracking in unconventional reservoirs was banned in Germany in 2016 and since then seemed to have been shelved. However, the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine has created new conditions for German energy policy and severely restricted the availability of natural gas for Germany. How can the gas, which is no longer being supplied, be replaced? This question will continue to be of significance for Germany's energy supply in the years to come. Could fracking make a relevant contribution to the security of supply? ESYS discusses the opportunities and risks of fracking and identifies uncertainties.

Creating Investment Incentives, Providing Reserve Capacity: options for the market integration of renewable energy

A massive expansion of renewable energy is key to achieving a climate-neutral energy supply. However, it is also associated with high investment costs, low returns for electricity producers at certain times, and a limited supply of electricity during periods with little wind or sunshine. Experts from the Academies’ Project “Energy Systems of the Future” (ESYS) have investigated how renewables can nevertheless be effectively and efficiently integrated into the market. Their conclusions include the following two key findings. Firstly, in order to provide adequate support for renewable energy, cross-sectoral carbon pricing will need to be accompanied by market premiums in the short-term. And secondly, various market models should be considered for providing the necessary reserve capacity.
