Prices for PV solar modules
Despite the overall increase in electricity consumption, the effective supply of energy by the utility to end users is decreasing. Under the above premise, the sale of energy to end users is only a fraction compared to today.
At the same time, peak loads are expected to increase. These are typically caused by the comparatively high power for charging e-cars, as well as the operation of heat pumps. It can be assumed that these load peaks will occur primarily in the evening hours of the winter months. In order to be able to manage these load peaks, additional effort must be expended by the network operator.
With the additional effort, the costs for the provision of the network also increase. Since the costs for the grid are allocated to fewer and fewer kWh of electricity sales under the current pricing model, there is a significant increase in the grid charges per kWh. This in turn increases the incentive for decentralized self-supply. At this point, at the latest, the issue of fairness comes into play. In any case, the distribution of network charges is not (or no longer) fair.
The consensus is that e-cars are the future of individual transportation. However, many people are not aware of how quickly this development can take place and what effects it will have. A daring look into the future.
n recent years, utilities have begun to optimize their business processes, diversify their revenue base and seek new service areas. The transformation is well underway.
This Eraneos blog article discusses why the path of a zero CO2 society is considered inevitable and why we should integrate this aspect into our daily thinking and actions as soon as possible.
