Interview with Reinford Hachoonga: A Zambian success story
The German Training Weeks on Project Development are part of the project development programme and aim to expand local networks and practical know-how. They offer an opportunity for local professionals to strengthen their project development skills and to establish long-term partnerships with highly qualified German companies from the solar industry. Reinford Hachoonga from Zambia took part in a German Training Week in 2019 which according to him provided not only valuable knowledge but also new work opportunities. Find out how the training has enabled him to scale up his solar projects in the interview.

Fact-finding missions resume in person
Opens in a new window
We are delighted to be able to offer Fact-Finding Missions to Germany in person again this autumn. During the events, company decision-makers as well as public authorities have an opportunity to gain insights into German energy technologies and to meet potential new business partners. The schedule of events until the end of 2021 has a wide global reach and thematic variety. In September we will be welcoming delegates from Azerbaijan to Berlin and Brandenburg to showcase wind, solar, hydroelectric and bioenergy solutions. Latest know-how on offshore wind technology will be shared with Indian delegates. Online missions feature energy efficiency in buildings for audiences from Chile and Morocco, and a focus on green hydrogen for South Korean participants. Later in the year, a range of renewable technologies will be showcased online to participants from South America and Jordan.

A new kind of hybrid solar cell with 1,000 times more power
Opens in a new window
Scientists from the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg have developed a novel hybrid solar cell where nanolayers of a ferroelectric material are interspliced between paraelectric materials, which dramatically increases the solar yield. The new discovery greatly advances ferroelectric crystalline cell technology, which has a number of advantages over silicon-cell technology, being far cheaper to produce and more durable.

Germany’s first methanol-fuelled ship sets sail
Illustration Energiespeicher
A pilot plant in the port of Bremerhaven has produced a carbon-neutral fuel, made with sewage-derived CO2 and green hydrogen, to power the country’s first ocean-going vessel to run on methanol. The 35-metre-long research cutter Uthörn, which is destined for fact-finding missions in the Arctic Circle, is equipped with a low-emission, methanol-based propulsion system, which produces far less greenhouse gases and particulates than conventional shipping fuel. The Uthörn is literally a flagship for the future of cleaner shipping.
