Product – Structure of an energy system built up on “Renewables”

“Renewables”, as volatile energy sources, usually do not provide energy, when energy is needed: they require balancing energy or storage systems for a constant supply of energy.

The 4 building blocks of the system:

⇒ Production from renewable sources
⇒ Transformation in adequate forms of energy
⇒ Storage
⇒ Consumption

The current requirements for each building block include various challenges.
Also, in the interaction of these components, there are considerable potentials.

Storage is the “Achilles heel” of the turnaround energy policy.
