It is the Federal Government’s objective to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Germany by 80 to 95 per cent by 2050 compared to 1990. In addition to increasing energy efficiency, this requires an increase in the use of electricity from renewable energy in all consumption sectors – industry, buildings and mobility. Furthermore, all producers and consumers from the various sectors must be brought together in a smart energy system and the appropriate technical infrastructures must be created.
In order to successfully shape the second phase of the energy transition, dena Study Integrated Energy Transition examines possible transformation paths in dialogue with numerous stakeholders from science and politics as well as more than 60 partners from different branches of industry and sectors that will lead to a climate-friendly energy system in 2050.
Our common goal was to better understand the systemic connections, identify the best possible transformation paths to achieve the climate targets and provide advice and a recommended course of action.
The dena Study Integrated Energy Transition examines the impact of energy production and distribution, building, mobility and industry sectors as well as their interactions and dependencies with a view to designing an integrated, climate-friendly energy system in 2050.
To do so, dena is working with more than 60 partners from industry and science on identifying the most promising transformation paths to restructure the energy system. The four modules of the Study:
