How can the convergence of the systems succeed? The discussion of this question is the focus of ENERGIE.CROSS.MEDIAL – the forum of the energy transition.
Not only have the power and energy sectors been involved in a radical process of change over the past several years; other sectors such as the raw materials industry, the mobility sector and urban planning development are also being called upon to drastically reduce their carbon emissions in the future. As a result, all sectors are considering the technological options available to achieve these goals. Sector coupling is seen as a key component in this regard. It aims to make renewable resources directly or indirectly available for energy-intensive industries, mobility and the supply of heat. The interplay of resources requires comprehensive support at all levels: technological, economic and regulatory. Holistic concepts must be conceived and implemented. This includes the establishment of national and global production structures for key technologies such as electrolysers, the further development of sector coupling technologies and the development of new mobility and urban planning concepts.
The aim of ENERGIE.CROSS.MEDIAL is to provide a platform for all involved sectors to discuss the challenges arising from this. In particular, the intersections between these different sectors are to be represented and possible solutions are to be identified. Accordingly, participants are expected to include representatives from providers of technology, the electricity sector, mobility providers, energy-intensive industries, the real estate industry, the digital economy, financial service providers, politics and science.
The event will take place for the first time in March 2020 and is organised in cooperation with the Forum für Zukunftsenergien e. V. (Forum for Future Energies).
