More than 50.000 jobs created in Germany by PV and storage expansion

The forecasts of the current study "The Energy Transition in the Context of the Nuclear and Coal Phaseout" by EuPD Research in cooperation with The smarter E Europe and the BSW Solar show that in order to avoid a shortfall in electricity generation, photovoltaics and storage must be greatly expanded in Germany.

The positive side effect: by 2030, this would be accompanied by a significant positive effect on employment and revenue. Within the next decade, the employment within the German photovoltaic and storage industry could triple, creating more than 50,000 new jobs. The forecasted industry revenue would grow during this period from five to 12.5 billion euros.

White Paper "Charging your electric fleet"

Autonomous, digital, networked - many future technologies are leading to new requirements and visions for fleet management. The focus is currently on the question of alternative powertrains with electromobility as the most important technology for the mobility of the future. Electric motors are today powerful, the ranges and types of vehicles are increasing continuously and the charging times are getting shorter. When it comes to charging instead of refuelling, the right solution is crucial. In our White Paper we provide answers to the most important questions about charging and how to electrify your fleet.
