Heute wurde unsere Studie zur direkten #Elektrifizierung von Prozesswärme und was wir damit erreichen können veröffentlicht. Die wichtigtsten Highlights gibt's im Thread 🧵 von @AgoraEW. Danke an @JuliaChMetz und @PhilDHauser für die gute Zusammenarbeit! Das hat Spaß gemacht! twitter.com/AgoraEW/status…

More background on security of supply through #renewables and how wind and solar have shifted the German energy system towards more #flexibility can be found here: bit.ly/3Ss6ir5

Q4: How can Germany secure #energysupply while working towards its decarbonisation goals? Until the current crisis, the shift to #renewables improved security of supply and reduced power capacity shortages, maintaining the reliability of Germany’s power system. pic.twitter.com/FD6F72FWKB
