System change in Greece

Like Germany, Greece is also in the process of redesigning its support scheme for renewables in line with demands from Brussels. One expert hopes the changes will bring greater legal certainty – and a fresh start for the country’s PV sector.

Electricity markets
Storage technology, decentralised expansion of renewables and regional price signals can help reduce the need for new power lines – without slowing the pace of the energy transition.
Job market
The switch to renewables could bring about a net gain of over 230,000 jobs in Germany, according to a study by leading research institutes which the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) has published after a long delay. The study, seen by “neue energie”, was covered in the magazine’s April issue. Its optimistic message is tempered by the warning that job creation in Germany’s clean energy sector depends on the country’s ability to compete on the global market – which could be under threat.
Fuel cells
Travelling by air and rail could be about to become much cleaner. The world’s first four-seater passenger plane powered by hydrogen rather than fossil fuels has recently completed its maiden flight at Stuttgart airport.
