Development Smart Grids Showcase C/sells

C/sells as an extensive show case project creates an east-west-solar arc connecting solar energy dominated "energy cells" solar cells with Baden-Wuerttemberg in the center. Due to the high solar generation and the mix of urban and rural areas, Baden-Wuerttemberg is predestined for the project. Furthermore, a diverse interaction pattern provides optimal conditions in order to implement new cooperation models.

More than 50 partners from Electricity Supply Industry, manufacturing, energy consumers, municipalities, and academic research will work over a period of four years on building up the energy system of the future. Dr. Langniß - Energie & Analyse compiled a consortium with over 50 partners from business and academia. A detailed draft had been drafted coordinating the comprehensive input of the partners. The draft presented the project’s content, approach, cost structure and organization with an overall scope of 100 million Euros. Dr. Langniss – Energie & Analyse supported funding applications of the partners, and coordinated with funding authorities.

Business models for the energy supply industry in developing countries

Decentralized power plant technologies based on renewable energies ensure inexpensive power supply for consumers in developing countries independent from the partly instable central power grid. New Technologies induce new market conditions for power plant investments and linked energy suppliers.

Problems are scruntinized in a survey and by means of selected case studies. New business models are described. Possible scenarios will be developed. The results and findings are documented in an article in English and are presented to the client.

Function: Expert in energy politics and energy systems and the preparation of a survey which presents problems and offers solutions.

Introduction of a Renewable Energy Feed-In Tariff, Zambia

Customer: Ministry of Mines, Energy and Water Development, Zambia, 2014

The Zambian government plans the introduction of a Renewable Energy Feed-In Tariff (REFIT) which shall promote deployment of solar energy and biomass based electricity generation with fixed remunerations. A study compares international experiences of such schemes with a focus on African nations. The findings of the study are discussed with stake-holders in a multi-stage process.

Climate Change Mitigation: Development of strategy for renewable energies, The People's Republic of China

Customer: CRS Center for Resource Solutions, San Francisco, USA, 2014

Within the framework of development of a strategy for renewable energies, investigations are conducted into the experience made with thermal solar power plants, legislation for promoting renewable energies and legislation for renewable energies in power grids.

Customer: Smart Grids Plattform Baden-Württemberg e.V., Stuttgart, Germany, 2014

The Smart Grids Plattform Baden-Württemberg e.V. was founded in November 2013 with stakeholders from electricity supply industry, network operators, real estate developers, manufacturers of IT and other equipment. The platform is dedicated to put the Smart Grids Roadmap Baden-Württemberg into action. This roadmap was developed in a joint effort with 140 stakeholders over the course of one year. Comprehensive smart grids projects in the German province of Baden-Württemberg shall be initiated and coordinated to demonstrate the feasibility and the benefits of smart grids. In particular, smart grids shall enable the integration of (distributed) renewable energy plants as well as create new value propositions in the field of energy supply.

Appraisal of project proposals to the International Climate Change Initiative

Customer: Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety, Berlin, Germany, 2014

Since 2008, the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) has been financing climate and biodiversity projects in developing and newly industrializing countries, as well as in countries in transition. The annual budget amounts to 120 Million €. Dr. Langniß reviewed several dozen applications for funding with the emphasis on project feasibility, cost-benefits and the human and financial resources of the applicant. The focus of the applications reviewed are on policy advice.
