Green Energy for China

  • Air needs emission reduction and more stringent standards, controlled by government. Air pollution control in industry need to be done more, as I was told for example most of installed exhaust gas cleaning scrubbers on top of factories or in marine vessels are not working efficiently as it could be technically possible.
  • Upgrades and Retrofitting of machines and equipment as an opportunity in waste management, especially in the industrial sector.
  • Energy storage solutions like Integrated E-mobility and energy management, Ceramic balls for head sorption, bipolar plates, improved Li-Ion cell technology, as seen at energy storage 2019 trade fair at Fraunhofer booth.
  • Battery energy storage, can help to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles. These chemistries, including lithium-sulphur and an organic "flow" battery, would need new manufacturing processes that would essentially start the industry over and eliminate Asia's lead of Li-Ion cells today. EVs will change our driving, jobs and habits.
  • Renewable energy storage solutions from generation to consumer end use have shown progress in recent years, e.g. 1) highly efficient lithium-ion rechargeable battery platform Tesla Powerwall/Powerpack, 2) redox flow batteries (fuel cell), which replace solid electrodes with energy-dense electrolytic compounds, 3) flywheel energy storage functions by accelerating a rotor to high speed and maintaining the power as rotating energy, 4) compressed air energy storage plants use pumped compressed air to store under pressure in underground caverns, 5) thermal energy storage, often used sensible storage paired with solar power plants, using liquid or solid medium like water, sand, rocks or molten salt, are either heated or cooled to store collected energy, 6) pumped hydroelectric storage stores energy using water contained in an upper reservoir that is electrically pumped from a lower reservoir.
  • The sun overshoots the energy demand by the factor 8000 and the energy of wind overshoots the demand by the factor 700. Therefore, each European country is able to produce enough energy from wind and sun to satisfy its own demand. Therefore all anticipating European countries become equal partners of an energy network. Chinese provinces need energy networking as well. Production reserve is necessary to balance transmission and storage losses and to bridge years with little wind or high electricity demand. The more production reserve there is the less storage is necessary and the faster those storage devices will be charged again. A secure power supply, only using 100% of wind, solar and storage power plants is therefore a real option to avoid using fossil fuels. A new type of Ringwall-storage-hybrid power plants with artificial landscape, patent approved in 2018, and a new type of hydraulic accumulator, patented in 2013, enables maximum storage capacities.
Therefore, there are a lot of business opportunities for German companies in China. The strategic Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) of the Chinese government to expand trade routes between China and the rest of the world, by spending huge money on infrastructure projects. In order to participate in the planned investments and gain better access to increasingly globalized markets, German companies still have great opportunities as subcontractors, as suppliers or as cooperation partners of Chinese companies, even not all sectors are accessible to foreign enterprises, like rural and agricultural sectors, and although practice shows that access to information and tenders for foreign companies is difficult.
