It is not only the German electricity market that is facing a turning point. Electricity is no longer generated centrally in large power plants by the electricity companies, but is now generated decentrally by mainly private operators for their own use or fed into the grid.
By 2022, another 10 gigawatts of nuclear power will be taken off the grid, and by 2030, certainly another 50 gigawatts of coal-fired power. This capacity must be replaced, because the demand for electricity will not decrease in the future. This is where the many decentralized combined heat and power plants come in, which only produce electricity when the renewable energy sources wind and sun take a break. Their advantage is that they are “on the grid” faster than the large power plants, can therefore react faster to supply and demand and, quite incidentally, also produce heat that can be used in the connected homes or businesses or greenhouses.
For all these engines Emission Partner supplies not only the necessary catalytic converters for exhaust gas after treatment but, if required, complete exhaust gas systems for combined heat and power plants consisting of catalytic converter, exhaust gas heat exchanger and silencers.
