Flagship PDP project: German solar for Kenyan roses farm
A German solar technology leasing company provides carbon-neutral energy for the flower farm Simbi Roses in Kenya. The 150 kWp solar power system, which was implementeded by ecoligo GmbH in partnership with the local EPC company Technolectric, will save up to 144 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. The partners came together within the framework of the Project Development Programme (PDP)of the German Energy Solutions Initiative. Sector-studies and flower workshops conducted by the PDP laid the foundation for a successful project implementation.

Never miss an event! Watch our conferences and seminars online
Die Online-Veranstaltungen der Exportinitiative Energie
Despite the COVID-19 situation, numerous online business trips were successfully hosted in a digital format. In the media room you can access a gallery of recent web conferences, seminars and training events at any time. For example, you can catch up on a webinar on a German-Canadian online conference on renewable energy in mining, and a German-Dutch energy webinar on heat infrastructure. The media room will be regularly updated with virtual events and information videos.

CO2-free circular energy concept for buildings
During the day, the system converts solar energy into electricity and heat, and at night it uses environmental cooling, essentially via heat exchange.
Imagine a smart home energy system that can produce heat, electricity, cooling and ventilation from entirely renewable energy sources. Researchers at the University of Paderborn have done just that in cooperation with seven industrial partners. The central component of the circular energy concept for residential and public buildings is the photovoltaic-thermal collector (PVT) which can be installed on roofs and facades. The novel system, which includes innovative storage and heat exchange, is managed by a smart control system.

ETA for climate-friendly air travel
The German Aerospace Centre (DLR) focus on developing novel propulsion system concepts for short-haul aircraft that harness hydrogen fuel cell technology and batteries.
Climate-neutral aircraft could be taking to the skies by 2040 thanks to a major research project launched by the German Aerospace Centre (DLR). The EXACT project brings together 45 scientists from 20 DLR institutes to develop not just the technology for planes to run on hydrogen fuel cells and batteries, but also the infrastructure to support it. Over the next four years, engineers, electrical technologists and operations experts will be reimagining air travel from the ground up.
