German Energy Solutions News

Welcome to the current edition of the newsletter of the Germany Energy Solutions Initiative. In the bi-monthly editions we keep you up to date with the latest information about German energy solutions. Furthermore you will learn about opportunities to meet German business partners around the world. This newsletter service is provided by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and is free of charge.

German Pavilion

Meet German companies at international trade fairs in your region
Trade fairs are a great opportunity to learn more about up-to-date climatefriendly technology that will save CO2 emissions and reduce your energy costs. Meet german companies face-to-face and benefit from their expertise in applying quality energy solutions to your needs. In 2022, you can find the German Pavilion of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy at fairs around the world, starting with the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi and the Intersolar North America.

PDP: Making fashion production in Vietnam more sustainable
A 10 MWp rooftop solar system was installed at Ty Bach factory, employing German components, such as DC cable JJ-LAPP, mounting frame from Schletter.
German solar technology is helping apparel factories in Vietnam meet international sustainability goals within our Project Development Programme (PDP). Solar energy is ideally suited to power garment factories which have a large amount of roof space and fairly stable consumption patterns during daylight hours. In Long An province, JiaHsin Long An – a factory that makes sandals for well-known brands such as Adidas, Nike and PUMA – has had a 1 MWp rooftop solar system installed with a solar inverter from SMA GmbH on a long lease basis. The annual energy yield is estimated to be 1,423 megawatt hours, equivalent to a reduction of 1,299 tonnes of CO2 per year. Similarly, a newly-built premises for manufacturing luxury sports goods Ty Bach Vinh Long had a 10 MWp rooftop solar system fitted with mounting frames from Schletter GmbH and DC cables from JJ-LAPP GmbH – the system will save 13,375 tonnes of CO2 per year. German solar solutions were also employed in Laiyih II Hau Giang factory, which produces exclusively for Adidas. As part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative, the PDP supported the Taiwanese manufacturers in finding suitable partners, meet regulations and raise awareness.

Cleaning up secondary steel production in Germany
Stock Foto Industrie
A new initiative from the Gas and Heating Institute in Essen could help to reduce the amount of energy consumed by steel smelting plants in Germany by 20 percent – equivalent to a substantial CO2 saving of 20,700 tonnes per year. The “OptiLBO” project will focus on the development of an innovative “electric arc” burner system and look at whether green hydrogen could replace natural gas as the fuel.

Lithium-metal batteries: the future of electromobility?
Opens in a new window
A new generation of batteries developed at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) has achieved a record-breaking energy density of 560 watt-hours per kilogram. Experts believe lithium-metal batteries are better suited to the electric cars of the future as they can hold greater amounts of energy and are far more stable. The HIU scientists used a novel liquid electrolyte and a nickel-rich cathode to achieve the results.
