News from the Kopernikus projects


First Kopernikus press morning


At the first Kopernikus press morning, the Kopernikus projects informed journalists about the energy system of the future and discussed the question “Climate economic stimulus program - which technologies should we use?”. Parts of the digital press morning are now also available for non-journalists.

The Kopernikus projects make up one of the largest research initiatives in Germany in the field of the energy transition. Their aim is to make it possible for Germany to be climate-neutral by 2050. Prof. Walter Leitner, spokesman for the P2X project, professor at RWTH Aachen, director at MPI-CEC, explains how P2X will research technologies in the areas of hydrogen and synthesis gas in the coming years.
