Mastering the challenges of energy transition

‘Energy Flash’ – the energy industry’s online business talk

The tasks of energy transition are too complex to be solved alone. Global climate change can only be stopped by sharing experiences and through partnerships, joint efforts and smart platforms.

In the Energy Flash online talk, Raphael Görner offers energy sector and digitalisation experts a platform for exchanging experience and sharing knowledge and know-how.

Interested viewers are involved in the debate so that lively discussions, inputs and ideas arise. A livestream as a combination of news programmes, workshops, interviews and discussion sessions: authentic, open and energetic.

New energy laws, same challenges. What will 2024 bring?
An energy-packed outlook for the new year and beyond

Energy Flash No. 7 – on 30 January 2024, at 2:00 p.m. CET

New global energy laws from 1 January 2024 and the current final agreement of the World Climate Conference in Dubai will have a decisive influence on the energy transition. This will support both the further expansion of renewable energies and the reduction of final energy demand. Society as a whole must face up to the transformation, and many questions arise with regard to the competitiveness of our industries:

  • What role does in-house power generation play in the transformation to renewable energies and the smart factory?
  • What do companies need to consider in an increasingly decentralised energy world?
  • How can greenhouse gas emissions be reduced economically in order to secure Germany and Europe as a business location and at the same time contribute to compliance with the 1.5 degree limit?

Raphael Görner discusses these burning questions in the live stream Energy Flash No. 7 on January 30, 2024 at 2 p.m. with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Birkner, Managing Director of the House of Energy in Kassel and Honorary Professor at the Chair of Electrical Power Supply Technology at the University of Wuppertal.

The House of Energy has set itself the task of supporting companies and politicians on the path to the energy transition by providing impetus, concepts, specific studies, and hands-on pilot projects. The work is carried out on a scientific basis, with economic objectives and with the involvement of politicians. The House of Energy and its network act as a source of ideas, competence centre, communication, coordination, and knowledge transfer platform.

Prof Dr Birkner says: "The energy transition represents a fundamental transformation process for society and the economy - from a fuel-based to a carbon-neutral energy supply with a strong regenerative basis. It must be viewed holistically and transdisciplinary. The energy industry, legal framework, finance, technology, industry, and business, as well as sociology, must be taken into account. Furthermore, all relevant final energy sources (electricity and chemical energy sources) and energy applications (electricity, mobility, and heat) must be considered. The interactions between the legal framework, use of technology and economic efficiency are particularly important here."

In order to have a chance of complying with the 1.5 degree limit, a high pace of transformation is required. This is particularly important for companies, as it raises the question of how the legislator's requirements can be implemented economically. Only in this way can the energy transition become a successful model and find imitators.

We would like to take this opportunity to raise a glass with you (virtually) to the year 2024 and provide you with many opportunities and impulses for the practical implementation of the new framework conditions.

Be part of it! And if you have any questions in advance, please send them to us so that we can respond to your interests in the best possible way. You will also have the opportunity to ask both experts directly in the live stream.

We look forward to seeing you and to a successful, energy-packed year 2024!
