Green energy around the clock: GESI's trailblazer blog

Welcome to our blog, where we provide you with news and insights from the world of green energy. Here you can find out what drives us, how our initiative is progressing and why large-scale batteries are a key enabler for a successful energy transition. 

The power plant strategy has increased the chance of an efficient technology mix: Gas and hydrogen for longer dark doldrums, large batteries for short-term demand. The sun and wind traditionally lack consistency, which poses a major challenge for the energy transition: To compensate for daily fluctuations, Germany needs electricity reserves for at least two hours. This corresponds to a total of 160 gigawatt hours (GWh). Some experts even estimate up...

The experts at Frontier Economics are forecasting a plus in the billions – primarily due to falling emissions and lower expenditure on fossil fuels. Large batteries benefit the economy and society far more than they cost. This is the key finding of a recent study by the international economic consultancy Frontier Economics (FE) on the “Potential of large-scale battery storage in Germany”. The investment costs would be “more than compensated...
