Academies of Sciences identify strategies for the sustainable use of bioenergy
16. January 2020
Astutely combining centralized and decentralized technologies is the only way of ensuring Germany's energy supply will be climate-friendly, reliable and competitive by 2050. This is the conclusion of a position paper published today by the Academies' Project “Energy Systems of the Future”. Every possible opportunity to expand wind and solar power must be grasped, from rooftop solar panels to offshore wind farms. To ensure a successful energy transition, the German academies of sciences are also calling for grid expansion to go ahead as quickly as possible and for secure digital control of the energy system to be put in place. The expansion of power grids, and of wind power and solar systems must be environmentally and socially responsible to alleviate conflict.
