EMOBILITY

Electrical Storage

Green hydrogen

Emobility

E-Mobility has been a popular topic for a multitude of years. It is a part of the energy transition: switching from vehicles powered by fossil fuels to those powered by electricity decreases carbon emissions. According to data from a report by DCTI in 2020, that the growth of new registrations of fully electric- and hybrid vehicles has risen by 54% and 44% respectively.

Nevertheless, a macro view showed that the process is only in its beginning stages: At the beginning of 2019, EV’s only made up 0.13% of all registered vehicles in Germany–numbers have continued to rise significantly since then. One of the biggest hurdles for e-mobility has been missing infrastructure for charging ones EV, and affordable, smart solutions for doing so.

Currently, according to data by EUPD Research, 10 battery powered electric cars are met with one registered public charging point. While many mainly think of cars when it comes to e-mobility, the maritime sector has been making strides forward as well.

Electrical storage

Battery energy storage systems are a key factor for the energy transition. They can be used to store excess renewable energy and provide electricity produced from solar panels during the night, for example.

Storage systems can be used for self-consumption, in the general energy market, as emergency power sources, act as an alternative power source on islands and more. There are four segments of stationary battery energy storage systems: Residential, commercial, industrial and utility.

Residential ESS serve as backup for power failures and are integrated into the grid of decentralized low power renewables. Commercial ones are located in factories and commercial buildings. They provide short term support during grid faults and production deficits. Industrial ESS are located e.g. in wind or PV farms and integrate decentralized medium power renewables into the grid.

Utility battery energy storage systems can be combined with high power renewable energy sources and connected to the medium voltage (MV) grid directly or via MV transformer.

Green hydrogen

Due to its capabilities in storing and transporting energy, hydrogen has been getting more spotlight in recent years. Especially when it comes to energy from renewable sources, which are theoretically widely available but not always in the spots or times they are needed, hydrogen is a viable candidate to close these gaps.

The German Hydrogen and Fuel-Cell-Association expects a development toward decentralized energy production, which will lead to a hydrogen-infrastructure in the future. In addition to these more stationary uses of hydrogen, it can be used for powering vehicles–this area of use is still in development, though.

Hydrogen can be produced in different ways. Green hydrogen, for example, is created through the electrolysis of water and its production is completely CO2-free, since the electricity used is sourced from renewable energy sources.

Recycling

Energy and Battery Storage Systems depend on the materials used to produce them. When they need to be disposed of, some of their materials can be recycled and reused, which increases sustainability.

While old batteries contain valuable raw minerals viable for reuse, they contain potentially dangerous ones as well. That is why recycling batteries is so important and complex–to be able to extract useful raw minerals while avoiding the contamination of harmful materials, they need to be disposed of separately from the rest of the waste.

Recently, it has become possible to gain lithium, which is a relatively rare material whose use is wide spread in the renewables industry, back from used batteries through recycling.

Carbon footprint

Reducing emissions is one of the main ways to work against climate change, and spreading the use of renewable energy sources and storage-opportunities are a part of the steps to take toward a significant reduction of the carbon footprint. A carbon footprint is a way to measure the amount of emissions a person, household, company, country, region, product etc. causes. The carbon footprint counts not only CO2-emissions, but other greenhouse gases relevant for the climate, such as methane and nitrous oxide, as well.
