The energy sector – what will change in 2023?

Picture

In 2023, the energy sector is once again facing significant changes. The German energy transition is pursuing the ambitious goal of increasing its share of electricity from renewable energies to at least 80 per cent by 2030. The German Renewable Energy Sources Act 2023 (Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz, EEG 2023) plays a decisive role in the implementation of this plan. And the advancing digitalisation in this area is also leading to changes in market communications. In this blog post, both aspects will be examined in greater detail.

Germany relies on liquefied natural gas (LNG) – the current situation regarding LNG projects

Picture

The German federal government is investing heavily in the development of its own import infrastructure for liquefied natural gas (LNG). The focus of this infrastructure is on floating terminals, the first of which was inaugurated in December 2022. In our blog post, we will give you a brief overview of the current plans to build LNG terminals.

Saving energy through gamification

Picture

Whereas we are motivated to save energy at home due to rising energy prices and an impending hole in our wallets, things often look different in the office: personal account balances do not suffer and so people sometimes leave a light or the heating on. One possible incentive in this regard is gamification – that is, the introduction of playful elements. In our blog post, you will learn exactly what this looks like and what potential savings gamification entails.

Are business intelligence maturity models relevant for the energy sector?

Picture

Business intelligence (BI) maturity models are used to find out how far along a company is in terms of digitalisation and data use. In our blog post, we will explain how maturity models help with classification, whether the Interaction Room is an alternative way to apply them and, if it is, whether it can be used as a basis to successfully improve BI in the holistic consultancy process.

Fan heaters – is the amount of electricity they consume a risk?

Picture

The energy crisis has seen electric heaters and fan heaters become a much-discussed alternative to gas for quite a few months now – not to mention the criticism of them and concerns about a blackout. But how justified is this concern and what impact did the appliances have on our electricity grid when we moved into winter? We will answer these questions in our blog post.

Winter and renewable energies – is that a contradiction in terms?

Picture

The German energy transition is pursuing the goal that the share of electricity consumed from renewable energies should be at least 80 per cent by 2030. But can renewable energies also reliably generate electricity in the cold, dark depths of winter when outside is a never-ending barrage of rain, ice and snow? To what extent do these factors impact the power plants and what solutions are out there? In this blog post, we will take a look at the most important influences and impacts on renewable energies.

APV – the best of both worlds

Picture

The expansion of photovoltaic plants needs to be accelerated to make the energy transition a success. But with an increasing lack of suitable land, the question arises whether to use it for agriculture or to generate electricity. Agrophotovoltaics allows areas of land to be used for two purposes simultaneously: photovoltaic modules on stilts generate electricity and at the same time, the land beneath them can be used for agriculture. But how does it work and what are the advantages and disadvantages?

Hydropower – the old lady of renewable energies

Picture

People have been harnessing the power of water for thousands of years. Today, hydropower plants are one of the cornerstones of our electricity supply, and this old and proven technology will play a key role in the energy transition. This blog post will explain how hydropower works and what types there are.
