How CHP can support the Path to 100 in Germany
An optimal path to 100% renewable energy future in Germany with CHP and Wärtsilä's Energy Transition Lab
Wärtsilä combined heat and power (CHP) plants are designed to meet the customer's specific needs, be it steam generation, district heating, hot or chilled water, or a combination of the above. As flexibility within the power system will
be increasingly required in order to integrate growing shares of renewables in a cost-efficient and secure manner Wärtsilä CHP technology, with its fast starting and stopping capabilities, can achieve total efficiencies as high as >90%.
The Wärtsilä Energy Transition Lab shows extremely well the evolving electricity market
landscape in Europe. We have witnessed the record renewable share levels, lower demand, significantly lower prices, challenging times for baseload generation, and more profit for energy storage installations. While the electricity prices are almost
halved, the price volatility in the market has increased. Join us and hear how Wärtsilä's Energy Transition Lab findings highlight the path to 100% renewables in Germany's coal phase out for 2038.
