WEBINAR: Wie können in Deutschland Gebäude mit hilfe von Wasserstoff und Brennstoffzellen dekarbonisiert werden? (Donnerstag, der 9 Juli | 11:00 bis 12:00)

Brennstoffzellen haben ein großes Potenzial Gebäude in Deutschland klimaneutral zu machen. Sie erzeugen auf sehr effiziente Weise Strom und Wärme aus Wasserstoff. Eine Brennstoffzellenanlage bringt enorme Vorteile, indem sie die Energiekosten und den Kohlendioxidausstoß eines Gebäudes erheblich reduziert. Sie unterstützt die Integration der Energieversorgung, indem sie Strom-, Wärme- und [...]
