The energy turnaround and decentralized energy production - Der Umbau des Energiesystems und dezentrale Energieerzeugung
The presentation looks at the drivers and trends behind the transformation in our energy system. Traditional generation and consumption structures are undergoing massive change – mostly because of renewable energies and innovative efficient technologies. At the same time, global megatrends such as climate change, scarce resources, political agendas and tools are driving that transformation.
The speech then goes on to describe decentralized energy generation as a key element of the new energy system. Using new business models, changed market structures and growing innovation momentum as examples, Ralph Büchele shows the long-term and structural change of our energy system. New and established market players are using this change as an opportunity to (re-)position themselves.
In his conclusion, Ralph Büchele shows what position the market for sustainable power generation is taking in the global market for environmental technologies. This highlights the size and dynamics of the environmental technology segment and its overall macroeconomic importance: "green business" is no longer a contradiction in terms.
