Incentives to Improve Energy Efficiency in EU Grids

This paper investigates the energy efficiency aspects in the network design and operation based on the Energy Efficiency Directive and its provisions related to network tariffs and regulation. The analysis on the possible technical efficiency measures to reduce losses, shows that a variety of both equipment replacement and operational improvements can lead to greater efficiency.

Organic Photovoltaics – Truly Green Energy: “Ultra-Low Carbon Footprint”

whitePaper | March 30, 2020

The global warming effect is unequivocal, and solar energy will play a major role in the most important battle of the 21st century: enabling increased energy consumption while minimizing the impact on our environment. In order to achieve the climate protection targets as soon as possible, the environmental impacts must be quantified and should be effectively integrated into the competitive process. TÜV Rheinland (Germany) has certified the environmental impact of the solar film HeliaSol® to be below 16 kg CO2e/m² through a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The result is an ultra-low carbon footprint ranging from 15 up to 3 g CO2e/kWh depending on the solar irradiation of a location.
