With the help of Grid Studies I and II, dena presents the measures which will allow the German electricity grid to meet the challenges of the future: through targeted grid expansion and at the same time optimising the existing energy infrastructure. One of the declared objectives of the energy transition is the integration of renewable sources into the electricity supply. However, before an electricity supplier can e. In this context, the following question arises: Which changes in the electricity grid are necessary within what period of time in order to be able to adequately implement the use of renewable energy sources, which by nature fluctuate?

The advances in generating green energy from renewable, non-fossil resources has led to a new kind of energy offer. This is characterized by a fluctuating, volatile provision of energy, demanding both for power savings and flexible solutions of energy uptake.
The chemical industry can be part of the latter pathway with its power-to-gas and power-to-chemicals routes, making its contribution to grid stabilization. About one hundred years ago, some production trials were made based on electrification of chemistry, namely in the field of plasma chemistry. Seemingly these days, there is to be expected a reentry of electrics into chemistry. The city of Eindhoven has the challenging ambition to become energy neutral by The smart window reflects heat in summer and allows it to pass through in winter.
This is a good example of innovation achieved at the interface between chemistry material science and energy for which we see many activities these days. The reason why chemergy will become a major issue, at least in Europe, is the predicted above-mentioned large surplus for electricity and CO 2. Then power-to-chemical concepts are one of the solutions to make efficient use of such extra energy according to Sol.
Methanol is preferred as it constitutes both a fuel and eminent platform chemical. Sol predicts a technological rush for solar panels similar to the large evolution of transistors made for computer chips. Coming back to the power-to-chemicals concept, there has been a recent forecast given by European roadmaps about the electrification of chemistry. The latter is the state in Germany with the most chemical industry Bayer, Henkel, Lanxess, Evonik, etc. The action catalogue proclaims that electrochemical processes will play an essential role, yet also refers to plasma processes.
Beyond that, the distributed chemical manufacture directly at the site of wind and solar parks generation offers another new window of opportunity. It may be worth going there. I will go.
