energy concepts | Engineering | Sustainability and climate protection | trends of technology | In March the colleagues at thyssenkrupp rothe erde reached a milestone in their production history: the manufacturing of the 1,000th multi-megawatt rotor bearing. We took a closer look at this component of wind turbines, which is so important for a successful energy transition.

energy concepts | mobility of the future | Smart energy | Sustainability and climate protection | Urbanization | Car journeys, air travel and shipping are an integral part of our globalized world, but they also pose a threat to our climate. Alternative fuels made from biomass or based on hydrogen offer promising solutions for the mobility dilemma: with the right technologies, they are climate-neutrally producible and thus a great hope for the energy turnaround.

energy concepts | Smart energy | What will our energy supply look like in the future? This is a difficult question for which there is no clear-cut answer. But we can describe alternative developments. In our third scenario, competition has been taken to extremes. In this all-embracing rivalry everyone is focused on their own interests – and the energy sector is no exception.

But we can describe alternative developments - that's exactly what we're doing with our Foresight series. In our second scenario, the world's energy system is under central control – however, the electricity does not come from renewable energies but from highly developed coal-fired power plants. The effects of climate change are very unevenly distributed in this alternative future and are accepted by the majority of people.

But we can describe alternative developments - that's exactly what we're doing with our Foresight series. In our first scenario, the world has become a place fit for everyone – thanks to a shared social vision of the future, political common sense, and purposefully pursued innovations. Collaboration has taken the place of competition.
