transition: the climate time machine

Issue five of the German Energy Agency’s energy transition magazine is available now – giving you a vivid picture of the near future.

The transformation of our energy system has taken a turn with the outbreak of war in Ukraine. We need to now tackle the phase-out of fossil fuels and the goal of climate neutrality even more decisively, and we have to rethink a number of things. The latest issue of the magazine transition looks at where the journey could take us.

Effective levers for climate neutrality

Innovations are crucial if we are to emerge more quickly from the current crisis. Right now, we need to be more courageous and take risks. SPRIND Director Rafael Laguna de la Vera makes this very clear in this issue’s dual interview. We also check in with the heads of government to find out what they consider to be the most effective levers for achieving climate neutrality. They all emphasise that the transformation offers plenty of opportunities for Germany. New technologies, markets and living spaces emerge when the will to innovate is supported by billions in investments.

Power supply, CO2 as a raw material and digitalisation

The many examples from our everyday work at dena show where the energy future has already started its journey or where it is on the starting block. Our power supply will be generated entirely by renewable sources. For this to happen, reserve power plants that are climate neutral are needed. The industrial capture and processing of CO2 may still be stuck in the development phase, but there have already been initial successes. Electric cars and charging stations can conduct business independently in the decentralised energy system of the future. And dena itself is also developing rapidly: greater responsibility, more employees and locations, as well as a new structure.

Check out the latest issue of transition for a vivid picture of the near future. transition – the dena energy transition magazine is published once a year and available in print and online.
