Energy in Future

Introduction

The aim of the website is to inform about the state of implementation of CO2 neutrality World and Germany with regard to primary energy consumption and to prove this with facts.

This website is not intended for readers who deny the climate change that we humans cause in a very short time.

For those who are really interested, the information is structured in 3 levels.

Level 1 you can find out in a few minutes by reading the introduction and the summary.

Level 2 explains the strategy or the common thread of considerations and calculations in more detail.

Level 3 technically/economically interested readers can enter the detailed calculations, technical understanding is a prerequisite here. Minimum knowledge of renewable energy is helpful.

The information is intended to convey where we stand across the world and for the individual case Germany with the implementation of the replacement of fossil-burned energy and when we will probably achieve the goal with the current implementation activities. Unfortunately, the result is disappointing. The aim is to convey this in a way that is as easy to understand as possible.

It is also shown that implementation within 20 years in terms of technology, costs and the necessary landscape would be possible and unproblematic across the world if the countries that consume the most primary energy were actively involved in the implementation.

Implementation in this period is unfortunately unlikely, since on the one hand not all countries participate in it and on the other hand the necessary annual increase in investments in renewable energies (factor 15 to 2019) is difficult to achieve (but not technically impossible). The fact is, however, that annual investment needs to increase significantly.

Some countries are not able to convert all the primary energy needed to renewables (areas not sufficient), for example Germany. But there are other countries that can generate a significant surplus of green primary energy, such as Saudi Arabia, Australia, Africa. The solution is compensation.

Germany must concentrate on switching at least 100% of electricity production to renewable energies and at the same time, importing the remaining primary energy in form of hydrogen (or similar). There are too few suitable land areas for the production of large quantities of green hydrogen in Germany. From today's point of view, this means an import of about 50 million tons of hydrogen/year.

In addition to the need to reduce CO2 emissions, there are of course other known major problems such as consumer behaviour in general, livestock farming and meat consumption, agriculture, forest clearing, waste management, recycling and, in particular, population growth, all of which are not components of the studies in this website, but in sum partly responsible for climate change.

My LOGO represents the rotor of a gas turbine for power generation. On the left side it is powered by fossil fuels and therefor red. To the right, the gas turbine is increasingly operated at night (no wind, no sun) with fuel converted from green electricity solar and wind (yellow) and therefore turns green.
