Sector convergence at 50Hertz

50Hertz is to embark on a collaboration project with public utility company Stadtwerke Rostock. Designed to make the energy system more efficient, the project will see surplus green power converted into heat.

First public appearance for Stefan Kapferer

50Hertz CEO Stefan Kapferer was one of the guest speakers at the annual Energy Summit organised by the German business newspaper Handelsblatt. It was his first public appearance since taking up his post in December 2019. Kapferer used his speech to announce that over 60% of the electricity transmitted by 50Hertz in 2019 came from renewable sources. This is a new record and makes the company a world leader in this area.

CGS convertor ready for test phase

50Hertz is to start extensive testing at its converter station in Bentwisch. The facility is part of the Combined Grid Solution (CGS) project to build an interconnector between offshore wind farms in Denmark and Germany, the first such project anywhere in the world. Because eastern Denmark and Germany are not in the same synchronous area, a frequency transformation is required in order to exchange current. This will take place at the Bentwisch converter station near Rostock. The CGS project is due to start operating in the first half of 2020.
