Transport is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases (GHG) and thus the biggest contributor to climate change. Light battery electric vehicles are widely seen as the fastest and most cost effective route towards decarbonisation.
For heavy duty vehicle it seems to be less easy.
Transport & Environment Germany has been working on a roadmap how Europe could achieve zero GHG road freight and buses by 2050. Let’s have a look at the German recommendations: Read More
TenneT’s thinking is based on an island with a modular structure, with each module covering approximately 6 km². This is big enough to provide space for connecting roughly 30 GW of offshore wind capacity. The island will be expandable by adding one or two modules of 6 km² each
An Energy Hub in the middle of the North Sea? Tennet launched a vision building an island as a hub, for wind power in the middle of the North Sea which will provide all neighboring countries green energy.
By connecting wind farms with a total capacity of over 30 gigawatts, the efficiency and costs will benefit the participating countries.
This plan was presented by TenneT last week. TenneT is the national high-voltage grid operator in the Netherlands and in a part of Germany. Read More
Interconnections are necessary to ensure the continued security of supply in the European electricity market and to secure the the supply of renewable electricity between European Countries.
The EU (European) Grid for renewables is connecting more and more countries. At this moment an interconnector is build from the Netherlands to Germany.
The Dutch Grid company TenneT uses a new proprietary ‘Wintrack Mast’. This ‘Wintrack Mast’ has a much smaller electromagnetic field than conventional masts and – because of its sleek design – it fits better in the living environment. Read More
To promote the flexibility of batteries, new parties are needed. A new player is the aggregator, an entrepreneur that will converge power storage in batteries, charging stations, electric cars, Power to Heat and flexible usage and sells this as a package deal. This could be an energy company, but also car leasing companies.
