Sector coupling

Electricity, heat, and fuel markets are increasingly merging. At present, the topic is highly relevant due to the advancing electrification of the heat and transports sectors with the help of both established (low-temperature heat pumps, rail transport) and novel technologies (high-temperature heat pumps, electric mobility). Furthermore, expected price drops and surplus electricity from renewable energy have highlighted opportunities for an increased active coupling through novel applications (Power-to-X or PtX). ifeu explores technologies, business models and policy instruments for the climate-friendly coupling of sectors.
