BASF and NGK enter into a nas® battery distribution partnership agreement It is not enough to produce enough energy – it must be available if necessary. That`s why we need faster development of the electricity grid. Often it fails because it is not accepted by the inhabitants. Will the development of the grid be the bottleneck of the energy transition? Companies such as Google, Norsk Hydro and Facebook are increasingly relying on renewable energy companies (PPAs) as a safe, reliable and competitive source of energy from clean energy sources, writes Malgosia Bartosik. The government has already discussed this issue and is making progress. The federal governments of Bavaria and Baden-Wuerttemberg recently agreed that, for example, the development of the electricity grid should be further implemented underground. I don`t think the development of the network will be a bottleneck. At BASF, we create chemistry for a sustainable future.
