Virtual power plants are helping push the energy turnaround forward
Renewable sources of energy play a decisive role in efforts to significantly reduce CO2 emissions around the world. However, the transition to a sustainable energy supply can only succeed if energy from renewable sources can contribute to the basic supply quickly and reliably. In other words, even when the wind is not blowing or sunshine is nowhere to be seen, power must continue to flow seamlessly into the grid. Virtual power plants can ensure that this is the case. Such plants are complex systems that can pool the power generated by photovoltaic arrays and wind parks in a single storage system. Virtual power plants can offset fluctuations between energy supply and demand. As a result, they help provide consumers with power from renewable sources of energy as needed, and are thus pushing the energy turnaround forward.
From wind turbines and energy storage systems to software-based control systems, Bosch offers a broad range of solutions. For more information on virtual power plants, a sample project, and an interview with an expert on the matter, please consult our current online special: Technology for the energy turnaround.
The Education for All Global Monitoring Report points out that education helps people to free themselves from the poverty trap and lead independent lives.
However, providing equal access to education for children all over the world is still a long way off. Following this path requires commitment from business and society, as well as political action.

The future of megacities
London developed into a metropolis with eight million inhabitants within 130 years. It took Shanghai just thirty years to achieve this growth. Today, there are already 23 million people living in this seaport in eastern China. They all need living space, a functioning infrastructure, and reliable access to food, water, and energy. This is a challenge that also offers opportunities for sustainable urban development.
