Welcome to the New Stone Age – Solid as Stone, Powerful as Volcanoes, Realiable as ETES
In the course of the energy transition conventional power plants have to be decomissioned before reaching the end of their lifetime. At the same time the need for large scale storage is increasing because more and more variable renewable energy sources are penetrating the energy systems. The presentation will show a practical example case in which a conventional power plant is converted into an emission-free energy storage system.
Maximilian Schumacher is responsible for the Business Development of the Electric Thermal Energy Storage technology developed by Siemens Gamesa. The main task is to bring the ETES technology from the R&D phase into the market. Previous to his current role he gained experience in the strategy department at Siemens Gamesa, in the R&D department at Enercon and at Neon a boutique consultancy specialized on electricity markets. Maximilian holds a master’s degree in Renewable Energy Engineering.
