In an interview with the German daily, Die Welt, prominent physicist Dr. Eicke Weber called for stepping up the construction of wind and solar power plants in places where energy is needed.

 

He argued that distributed power plants could reduce costs for consumers. For our CEO Dr. Christian Thiel, this idea does not go far enough. Of course distributed wind and solar plants absolutely make sense,” says Thiel. “To ensure a sustainable contribution to the energy transition, it is absolutely essential not only to have local power plants but also the storage capacity to match. That is the only way to ensure the sensible use of locally generated power and create a viable alternative to fossil power plants for the long term.”
