13: Security of Supply as a Locational Factor

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

Economies and working environments are currently changing like never before. Industry 4.0 is the keyword and the main challenge at the same time. A basic requirement for this global transformation is energy in the form of electricity. To guarantee the security of supply by providing a highly modern power grid is of utmost importance – as a relevant locational factor but also for the security-critical infrastructure of any country. In this context the question arises as to what constitutes the economic and ecological values of the security of supply.
