An Economically Viable 100% Renewable Energy System for All Energy Sectors of Germany in 2030
To be able to fulfil the Paris Climate Agreement and keep global warming with reasonable confidence at a maximum of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels, Germany must set an end to all greenhouse gas
A Review of Small–Medium Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Technologies and Their Role within the 100% Renewable Energy Systems Scenario
The energy transition towards a scenario with 100% renewable energy sources (RES) for the energy system is starting to unfold its effects and is increasingly accepted. In such a scenario, a
The Value of Fast Transitioning to a Fully Sustainable Energy System: The Case of Turkmenistan
This study provides potential transition scenarios to full sustainability for Turkmenistan in power, heat and transport sectors and demonstrates that a 100% renewable energy system, regardless of the transition rate, will be lower in cost than a continual reliance on fossil fuels.
Optimal supply chains and power sector benefits of green hydrogen
Using an open-source co-optimization model of the power sector and four options for supplying hydrogen at German filling stations, a trade-off between energy efficiency and temporal flexibility is found.
Feasibility and Economic Impacts of the Energy Transition
There is currently no consensus regarding whether or not renewable energies are capable of supplying all of our energy needs in the near future. To shed new light on this controversy, this paper
Management of Energy Sources and the Development Potential in the Energy Production Sector—A Comparison of EU Countries
Appropriate management of energy sources is one of the basic undertakings in the energy sector. Climate policy changes and the development of technologies enabling the acquisition of energy in a way
The Role of Electrification in the Decarbonization of the Energy Sector in Portugal
Climate change already affects all inhabited regions of the world, with human influence contributing to many observed changes in climate extremes and to mitigate this trend, important decisions have


Decarbonization of Australia’s Energy System: Integrated Modeling of the Transformation of Electricity, Transportation, and Industrial Sectors
To achieve the Paris Agreement’s long-term temperature goal, current energy systems must be transformed. Australia represents an interesting case for energy system transformation modeling: with a
100% Renewable Energy Supply for Brazil—The Role of Sector Coupling and Regional Development
With its abundance of renewable energy potentials, not only for hydropower and bioenergy, but also for wind and solar, Brazil provides good prospects for a carbon neutral energy system. The role of
A technical and economic analysis of one potential pathway to a 100% renewable energy system
This paper outlines how an existing energy system can be transformed into a 100% renewable energy system. The transition is divided into a number of key stages which reflect key radical technological
Radical transformation pathway towards sustainable electricity via evolutionary steps
A LUT Energy System Transition Model is utilized to indicate that a carbon neutral electricity system can be built in all global regions in an economically feasible way but requires evolutionary changes for the following 35 years.
