Green Hydrogen as a Solution for a Reliable Power Supply?

The smarter E Podcast Episode 77 | January 13, 2022 | Language: German

For a reliable power supply based on renewable energies, solar and wind power must be stored not only in the short term, e.g. in batteries, but also, and above all, in the long term, over months. In this context, the hydrogen economy could play an important role. But can we expand electrolysers for green hydrogen fast enough? And can the capacities in Germany meet the demand at all? We talk about this with Fabian Jochem, Head of Strategy at SMA Sunbelt.


2.29: Where are the biggest and best applications for green hydrogen?

9.06: What technical solutions does SMA Sunbelt already offer?

12.02: Electrolysis technology: How mature is the technology and what are the key development opportunities?

EM-Power Europe 2022: A Stable Power Supply With Grid-Stabilizing Inverters

April 20, 2022

Large-scale fossil-fueled power stations and nuclear power plants have been stabilizing the power grid until now but the energy transition is going to change that. The last nuclear reactors in Germany are due to be shut down by the end of 2022. And the plan is to phase out coal altogether by 2030. Before the war in Ukraine, gas-fired power plants were pegged as a transition technology. But now there is no choice but to rethink that strategy.
