Green hydrogen as an enabler of a CO2-neutral economic system

Power-to-X technologies are the key to a successful energy transition. Especially green hydrogen – which is derived from renewable energies via electrolysis – has earned a leading role. Not only can green hydrogen be used for the carbon-neutral storage of renewable energy, it can also be used as a raw material in industrial production and as a fuel in the transportation sector. The European Commission regards hydrogen as one of the key enabling technologies in its strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Many member states including Austria and Germany are experiencing a hydrogen boom, as can be seen in the initiation of national hydrogen strategies. This development also offers manufacturers of electrolyzers and fuel cells enormous business potential and many other perspectives. Werner Diwald, Managing Director of the German Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, emphasizes: „The green hydrogen is ready, we just have to push it. This creates industrial jobs.“ The leading players in the industry have already developed solutions for implementing the hydrogen strategy and the European Green Deal, and they are ready to showcase them at ees Europe in Munich. Do not miss out on the opportunity to enhance your own business models and contacts!

Battery production technology in the spotlight

The European battery market is booming. Production capacities  for lithium-ion batteries are growing faster in Europe than in any other region of the world. Current forecasts predict that the continent’s share in this global manufacturing business will  increase from around 6 percent now to 16–25 percent by 2030. Alongside projects by European manufacturers such as Tesvolt, VARTA and Saft, numerous production plants are also being set up in Europe – particularly in Germany – by businesses from  elsewhere such as Tesla and CATL. According to Bloomberg NEF, the main drivers of this positive development are the falling  costs and the simultaneously growing sales, in particular due  to electromobility. The expansion of European battery  production is also profiting from subsidies offered by the  European Commission, which is supporting businesses  involved in battery cell research and innovation through its  program Important Projects of Common European Interest  (IPCEI). The European Investment Bank, too, is investing in  battery development on the continent, with around one billion  euros paid out in 2020 alone. Make the most of this growth at ees Europe  in Munich, where you will find the companies who are shaping  the future of battery production technologies.

More than 50.000 jobs created in Germany by PV and storage expansion

The forecasts of the current study "The Energy Transition in the Context of the Nuclear and Coal Phaseout" by EuPD Research in cooperation with The smarter E Europe and the BSW Solar show that in order to avoid a shortfall in electricity generation, photovoltaics and storage must be greatly expanded in Germany.

The positive side effect: by 2030, this would be accompanied by a significant positive effect on employment and revenue. Within the next decade, the employment within the German photovoltaic and storage industry could triple, creating more than 50,000 new jobs. The forecasted industry revenue would grow during this period from five to 12.5 billion euros.
