The energy transition is technically feasible! That is the key finding of the completed project Northern German Energy Transition 4.0 (German: Norddeutsche EnergieWende (NEW) 4.0). This insight calls for action. The succeeding joint research project North German Real Lab (German: „Norddeutsches Reallabor“ (NRL)) builds on this insight and brings together over 50 project partners from economy, science and industry with the goal of assaying a transition path for an integrated energy system. If successful, the project can demonstrate, that a reduction of CO2 emissions by 75 per cent in Northern Germany is possible until 2035.
The NRL is spart of the support initiative „regulatory sandboxes of the energy transition“ (German: „Reallabore der Energiewende“) by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action. More fundings are prodived by the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport. The associated partnership of Renewable Energy Hamburg is financially supported by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg.
Our cluster accounts for accompanying communication as associated partner to the project and encourages the exchange between the single players within the project. Find more information here.
