Next HyStarter begins work: Dialogue event in the four-gated city of Neubrandenburg
The search for geopolitically independent energy sources and efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and associated climate change are the driving forces of a comprehensive energy transition in Germany. The share of non-renewable energy sources is to be reduced to a minimum. But as renewable energy sources have characteristics making them slightly less flexible to use – including production being weather dependent or difficulties in terms of transport and storage – modifications are needed to make the industry sustainable.
