Technologies for the transition to renewables
Storing, converting, adjusting consumption
Renewable energies have become an important part of the energy mix. According to the International Energy Agency, electricity generation from renewable energies, including hydropower, will triple worldwide between 2012 and 2040. In Brazil, wind power is expected to reach 24 GW of installed power in the national grid by 2024, accounting for 12% of the Brazilian energy matrix. At thyssenkrupp we want to play an important role in the energy revolution.
One of our aims is to make renewable energies a reliable source by developing innovative storage technologies to manage weather-related volatility. Other key areas include our Carbon2Chem project and load management, i.e. adjusting energy consumption to supply.
