  author={Marwa Mostafa and Daniela Vorwerk and Johannes Heise and Alex Povel and Natalia B. Sanina and Davood Babazadeh and Christian T{\"o}bermann and Arne Speerforck and Christian Becker and Detlef Schulz},
In order to meet ever-stricter climate targets and achieve the eventual decarbonization of the energy supply of German industrial metropolises, the focus is on gradually phasing out nuclear power, then coal and gas combined with the increased use of renewable energy sources and employing hydrogen as a clean energy carrier. While complete electrification of the energy supply of households and the transportation sector may be the ultimate goal, a transitional phase is necessary as such massive as…
