Unlocking European Energy Security is the title of a white paper that was recently published by Siemens Gamesa. In it, the company outlines the energy supply challenges that Europe has been facing ever since the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, as well as the steps that need to be taken in order to bring stability and energy security while also addressing the climate emergency and delivering decarbonization.
For nations, the urgency and necessity of securing their energy supply grew drastically n the space of just three months in 2022. Both in terms of maintaining an independent supply and providing stable pricing for the customer, geopolitical events have heightened European governments’ worries about energy security.
When it comes to meeting the EU’s 2050 climate neutrality target, renewable energy and green hydrogen will play a key role. Large-scale decarbonization is conceivable while providing energy security via the use of clean, inexpensive, and locally generated clean energy and fuels. Nations may attain net zero by converting hard-to-abate sectors to this green fuel.
Jochen Eickholt, CEO of Siemens Gamesa, stresses the necessity of addressing both energy security and decarbonization simultaneously. “The present crisis should not be allowed to drive the climate emergency down the agenda. In order to lessen our dependence on fossil fuels, the whole renewable energy ecosystem must work together. Green hydrogen also requires a seismic change in the volume and pace of renewables roll-out to attain scale and consequently competitiveness.” Five levers hold the key:
- Increase the amount of renewable energy generated in Europe; expediting the permission procedure is key to this.
- Develop a stable hydrogen trading market and green hydrogen infrastructure for transportation and distribution, whether locally generated or imported.
- Innovate storage systems to assure supply continuity and predictability, and pass legislation that allows for sector coupling to balance energy consumption with green hydrogen generation.
- Introduce legislative and regulatory mechanisms to establish a market for green hydrogen produced in the EU with assured cost comparisons against fossil fuel-based imports.
- Industrialize the manufacture of electrolyzers required to meet European demand.
Juan Gutierrez, the global CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s Service business, has stated that the company is making the following request: “Siemens Gamesa urges European governments and key industry to form a coalition in order to provide energy security via renewables and green hydrogen, environmental security through vital decarbonization, and price stability for end customers” The terrible events that took place during the invasion of Ukraine have exposed some uncomfortable truths about each of these elements’ vulnerability, but it is within the power of nation states to address each of these through a united approach to increase the installation of renewable energy sources and the adoption of green hydrogen.
Thankfully, Siemens Gamesa isn’t the only one that is trying to make the renewable future a reality, and even though green hydrogen is very efficient and important, it is only one of many major factors in the fight against climate change. Another major player that we would like to talk about is neutrino energy, for a long time, experts dismissed the idea that neutrinos may be employed as a source of energy. In 2015, however, Takaaki Kajita of Japan and Arthur McDonald of Canada independently verified that neutrinos possess mass. This discovery persuaded several scientists and engineers that the prospect of neutrino energy exists.
Since then, the renowned Neutrino Energy Group, which was formed by Holger Thorsten Schubart, a pioneering mathematician and energy scientist, has put itself at the forefront of the creation of tomorrow’s clean energy solutions through harnessing the power of neutrinos and other kinds of non-visible radiations since their use is similar to that of a photovoltaic solar cell in many aspects. Rather than collecting neutrinos and other types of non-visible radiation, a part of their kinetic energy is absorbed and subsequently transformed into electricity. The company started out as a partnership between firms in the United States and Germany, but it has since expanded into a much bigger organization that now comprises participants from all around the globe, including both businesses and scientists. This extraordinary partnership has crossed national borders in its pursuit of energy solutions for the benefit of all people on earth.
For the past couple of years, The Neutrino Energy Group and the highly motivated and innovative energy specialists and scientists who work there have poured a lot of time and effort into improving their neutrinovoltaic technology to assist the energy now provided by wind farms, solar panels, and other sustainable energy initiatives. In the years to come, this one-of-a-kind energy source will transform the way we see renewable energy.
Neutronovoltaic technology dose not face the same efficiency and dependability obstacles as other renewable energy sources. Neutrinos, can travel through almost all known materials, meaning that neutrinovoltaic cells do not require sunlight to function. They are versatile enough to be used inside, outdoors, and even underwater. Due to the simplicity with which neutrinovoltaic cells may be insulated while still generating energy, this technology is unaffected by snow and other types of inclement weather, enabling it to generate electricity around the clock, 365 days a year, regardless of its location on the world.
The Neutrino Energy Group and its remarkable neutrinovoltaic Technology have provided humanity with a long-awaited and trustworthy solution to the current energy crisis. As a consequence of their efforts, more important advancements will occur, and hopefully others will follow in their footsteps so that we may live in a better and more environmentally friendly world in the coming years.
