Combination of Renewables and CHP plants favorable for Bavarian electricity supply

Our latest study in collaboration with the ifo institute and the IHK München und Oberbayern about the transformation of the energy system was published yesterday!

Current energy policies in Germany contain the phase out of conventional energy carriers such as nuclear and coal. However, the kind replacement of these capacities with other technologies while ensuring the security of supply remains to be decided.
The results of the study show, that a combination of renewable power plants and decentralized CHP plants is favorable in order to decrease emissions and prices for electricity in Bavaria as well as in Germany in general. Furthermore, an increase in transmission line capacities contributes to achieving the goal of a decarbonized energy system, by decreasing the need for curtailment measures for renewable energies.
