The potential for renewable energies in Hamburg and throughout Germany was the focus of debate at today’s inaugural conference on Hamburg Renewable Energy Leadership 2011 held by Hamburg’s renewable energy cluster agency EEHH GmbH at the Haus der Patriotischen Gesellschaft von 1765. Fully booked with around 300 guests from business, science and the media, the conference was an excellent forum for an in-depth analysis of German and international energy policy with leading representatives of the renewable energies industry.

“In view of the favourable energy policy and economic conditions we will experience a significant market expansion in renewable energies over the next few years in Germany,” said Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Kaltschmitt of the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) in his keynote address. To support this positive trend, however, existing optimisation potential for electricity generation would have to be developed in both the system technology and the production and distribution system. The electricity supply system would need to be adjusted better to the fluctuation in feed-in, e.g. through energy storage (including pump storage in the Alps and in Norway), and better demand management using smart grids and increased supraregional transmission capacities.

Professor Kaltschmitt also noted the hitherto sluggish development of renewable energies as a source of heating supply. He criticised the limited innovation capability of the industry in question and with it the limited market availability of smaller, high-efficiency heating systems such as heating that generated electricity or (bio) gas-powered heat pumps. “Overall, renewable energies’ share of Germany’s energy supplies in years to come would reach a disproportionately high level compared with other major industrial countries if the political, administrative and technical conditions were to undergo consistent further development. That could lead to the consolidation of Germany’s leading role in technologies to harness regenerative energies and possibly to its further growth,” Kaltschmitt concluded.

“We are delighted by the strong turnout at our inaugural conference. This enormous interest shows us that renewable energies have a great potential – one that has yet to be fully exploited – at the Hamburg business location. In future the Hamburg Renewable Energies Cluster will advocate even greater networking among existing companies in the industry and the promotion of new ideas, project cooperations and start-ups,” said Jan Rispens, Managing Director of EEHH GmbH.

“The Hamburg Renewable Energy Cluster has already become a success story in just half a year. We now have 120 corporate members compared with 57 when the association was founded in September. With this conference we are also reaching many new companies that we hope will further expand our network in Hamburg and the Hamburg metropolitan region in the future,” said Michael Westhagemann, CEO of Region Nord Siemens AG and Chairman of the Association for the Promotion of the Hamburg Renewable Energy Cluster.
