The conversion of diesel fuel into electricity is not only particularly damaging to the environment but also very expensive. In spite of this, diesel conversion has, in many parts of the world, hitherto been the only option for a reliable energy supply. Together with strong partners WIRSOL is working around the world to steadily increase the amount of renewable energy being used in these electricity grids. Grid stability and reliable supplies are the top priorities when doing so. The benefits are obvious – reduced electricity production costs can be passed on to customers while the burden on the environment is significantly reduced.
Diesel replacement is just one of many objectives. The knowledge gained within the scope of these projects is also being applied in Germany, in line with the government’s expansion targets which aim to achieve 80% renewable energy in the German power mix by 2050.
