Cars equipped with electric engines or other alternative drives are making major inroads. Scientists at the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) set out to develop a suitable filling station for these vehicles. Launched in mid-February 2018, this project goes to create a fuel 'pump' for the future. This dispenser is to deliver renewable electrical power, hydrogen and methane in the most efficient, cost-effective and purpose-driven way possible. The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is funding this project with around €1.3 million. It will run for five years as part QUARREE 100, an initiative to test an urban quarter's fully renewable power supply.

Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, has been awarded a 101,2 MW project from ReNew Power - one of India's largest clean energy companies, to deliver the Bhuwad Wind Project (part of Round 2 bidding from Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited - a company of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India) in Gujarat, in a sign of growing emphasis on renewable energy in India.

Supermarkets will become a major pillar of the energy transition. Through an intelligent energy management, they will not only be able to substantially save on energy costs, but also delivering flexibility that allows us to integrate more renewable energy into the energy grid. Danfoss A/S and SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA) will demonstrate this in a pilot project in an aktiv&irma supermarket in Oldenburg.

In Germany 2017 was the weakest year for solar thermal collector sales in more than a decade, according to the combined statistics by associations BDH and BSW-Solar. Their data reveals that only 78,000 systems were sold last year. The newly installed collector area added up to 625,000 m², down 16 % from 2016 and as much as 72 % from the boom year of 2008. It was an astonishingly poor showing, considering the strong growth in the construction industry and the high incentive amounts available in Germany.
