Global power generation is increasingly based on renewable energy, with rising shares of electricity from PV and wind power plants included in the generation mix. Yet CO2 emissions from the heating and cooling sector, from passenger and freight transportation, and from industrial appliances are still high. In these sectors, emissions reductions have been relatively limited. The concept of sector coupling, which refers to the use of electricity to provide heating/cooling, mobility, and energy for certain industrial applications, is seen as a promising solution that could provide appropriate forms of energy and industrial feedstocks on a low-emissions basis for these sectors.

This course focuses on:

  • Introduction to sector coupling
  • Direct electrification in the heating and cooling sector
  • Direct electrification in the transport sector
  • Indirect use of electricity
  • Regulatory framework

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Explain the purpose of the concept of sector coupling as well as opportunities and challenges associated with the concept, and
  • Compare the status quo of available technologies for sector coupling in the heating/cooling sector and in the transport sector, as well as generally expected future developments regarding technology options and costs.

This training suits those who:

  • Want to gain an overview what Power to X means for different sectors and how these sectors developped
  • Would like to develop grid integration strategies for renewable energy and consider cost trends of power to X
