Green electricity is now an established product on the electricity market and is often referred to as “green electricity”. Guarantees of origin (GoO/GO) can be used to prove this “green” characteristic, i.e. that the electricity was generated from a renewable energy plant (RE plant). According to current regulations, this green electricity certificate must be cancelled within one year. The next big step in the transformation of the energy industry is the production and utilisation of hydrogen.

The weather swarm: power price scenarios, weather and climate change

How could climate change transform the electricity market revenues of renewable energies? Future climate change will impact today’s investment decisions in renewable generation plants, as power prices are influenced by, among other things, the weather. Fundamental power price scenarios have not yet taken this into further consideration. Energy Brainpool has therefore developed the concept of a climate-sensitive “weather swarm”.

Energy Market Review August 2023

In August 2023, the German energy market experienced record-breaking electricity generation from wind and solar. However, this is not the only thing that is causing problems for coal. In the meantime, the increased CO2 prices also mean a significant competitive disadvantage for fossil energy generation. Gas and oil prices did not settle down in August either. The LNG strike and OPEC production cuts drove prices up.

Amidst German high-tech laboratories, significant scientific innovations are born, which, along with German chemical products, are exported to the entire world. The impact of chemical-pharmaceutical products extends far beyond national borders. However, their production is accompanied not only by economic gain but also by an enormous consumption of energy and resources. Hence, a vital contemporary question arises: How can carbon neutrality be reconciled with the chemical industry?
