Photovoltaics – A Pillar of Sustainable Energy Supply

The smarter E Podcast Episode 14 | August 20, 2020 | Language: German

The sun provides 10,000 times the energy required in the world every year. No wonder that photovoltaics is an important pillar of sustainable energy supply.

But where are we on the way to the energy transition? Do we even have enough expansion space if e-mobility generates additional consumption? What are the target values for the expansion and what efforts are necessary?

Our moderator Tobias Bücklein talks about this with Dr. Jann Binder, head of the photovoltaics department at the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW).
