We serve a selected number of markets and sectors, where we are able to deliver extra value and open up new perspectives with emphasis on Europe and the Americas.
Solar photovoltaic energy continues to be among the most efficient technology for decentralized and clean power generation sources. Public authorities world-wide promote their development and introduction. In particular, markets in emerging economies are among the most attractive with high growth potentials and often advanced regulatory frameworks.
Biomass – the renewable and virtually unlimited source for traditional as well as innovative applications. From energetic to pharmaceutical applications, from residual biomass to cultivated algae biomass – many of them well established and competitive without any subsidies. Learn how they can meet economic and sustainable expectations at a time.
We don’t know precisely how climate change will alter our environment, but two things are to be expected: Its complex environmental impact will directly affect business, society, and ecosystems; and governments will seek to mitigate its effects with far-reaching regulations.
Companies have for the most part freely emitted carbon, but they will increasingly find that those emissions have a cost associated, both monetary and social. As a result, businesses that continue to sit on the sidelines will be badly handicapped relative to those that are now devising strategies to reduce risk and find competitive advantage in a carbon-constrained economy.
The need for alternative transport fuels is evident and widely accepted. Among the alternatives, biofuels have a number of advantages, such as their approved and available technology, they can be used in current combustion engines, and infrastructure. New production technologies with higher efficiencies are leading to advanced biofuels with improved energy and GHG balances. This gives biofuels a window of opportunity meanwhile other technologies such as electricity or hydrogen fueled vehicles arise.
Having mentioned e-mobility, electric vehicles (EV) are on the road already. However, their wider market diffusion still is hindered by significant obstacles, ranging from battery capacities, via lacking charging infrastructure, to data management and communication standards between the market participants. Nevertheless, there are niches, where compeititve operation of EVs already has been demonstrated, such as in local public transport and other urban applications.
