Reduce greenhouse gas emissions thanks to VoltStorage Home Battery.

Climate change is already having a massive impact on our ecosystem. It is time we took up this challenge by reducing harmful emissions and thus preventing global warming. Find out more about how you can make more of your climate-friendly solar power with our home battery storage.

How greenhouse gases change our climate.

The earth is surrounded by a layer of different gases, known as atmosphere. Some of them are greenhouse gases such as methane, and CO2. They ensure that heat radiation emitted from the warm earth’s surface is intercepted in parts and reflected back to earth. Without this greenhouse effect, the average temperature on earth would be -18 degrees. Over the past 50 years, however, worldwide emission of some greenhouse gases, such as CO2 and methane, have multiplied.

As a result, more heat is intercepted and sent back to Earth, heating up the planet far beyond the usual and changing our climate noticeably. Reducing these emissions, global warming and thus climate change can be slowed down or even stopped.

Great potential for reducing emissions and thus protecting our climate is found in clean energy generation. In Germany, more than a third of all polluting emissions are caused by energy production. The intelligent use of renewable energies such as solar and wind energy can make a decisive contribution to mitigating global warming. In order to enable weather-independent use of this energy 24/7, power storage devices are regarded as a key technology.

Consequences of global warming

The poles are melting

30 million km³ of water on earth are in the state of ice – most of it on the polar caps and in Greenland. If this quantity were to melt, the sea level would rise by 80 metres. Metropoles such as New York, Berlin or London would be covered by masses of water. Even if this scenario does not materialize all the way, the partial melt of the ice masses to melt still threatens the habitats of millions of people. According to the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report in 2013, sea levels will rise by 82 cm by 2100 if greenhouse gas emissions are not capped. The first effects can already be seen today, as the resettlement of the island state of Kiribati shows.

Living spaces are at risk

The Pacific island state of Kiribati is home to over 110,000 people. Although their contribution to global warming is too small to measure, the consequences of climate change could hardly be any greater. Due to the rising sea level, large parts of the 32 island atolls of Kiribati will be flooded by 2050 and will no longer be habitable. (Source: World Bank). The Government of Kiribati has already taken initial measures to resettle the population. 2,000 hectares of land were purchased on the Fiji Islands, more than 2,200 km away. The settlements emerging there are to become the future home for tens of thousands of Kiribati. In the process, the Kiribati lose not only their homeland, but also their identity as a maritime and coastal nation. The settlement areas on Fiji’s largest island are far from the coast – in the mountains of the pacific island.

Floods caused by heavy rain

Global warming not only causes sea levels to rise, but also increases the probability of storms and torrential rain – and thus also of flooding. The reason is simple: the warmer the air, the more water vapour can be absorbed, which later pours to the ground as rain. Due to increasing global warming, numerous above-average precipitation incidents have already been recorded in recent years – especially in Europe, where the probability of extreme rainfall has already increased by more than 30 percent due to climate change.

Precarious living conditions are emerging

The accumulation of extreme weather conditions such as drought or flooding is causing massive crop losses, especially in the poorer regions of the world. There, farmers are increasingly finding themselves in precarious circumstances, as they can no longer make a living from agriculture. For the rural population in Nicaragua, moving to urban areas has become the last resort to many. Since there are generally not enough jobs for unqualified workers, many adults, but also children, try to get by as garbage collectors.

Endangering natural wonders

Since the end of the 19th century, glaciers in the Alps have lost a third of their surface area. In 2015 alone, Austria’s largest glacier, the Pasterze, was reduced by more than 50 metres. In addition to natural climate fluctuations, global warming is also contributing to the decline in glaciers. Especially the elevated summer temperatures cause the glaciers to melt, which is difficult to compensate for in the winter months by snowfall and avalanche deposits. Even today, 97 percent of all glaciers worldwide are losing ice. If global warming continues unabated, studies assume that large parts of the alpine glacier masses will have disappeared by the end of the century.

Devastating hurricanes

Wind speeds of up to 290 km/h, over 100 dead and tens of thousands whose houses were destroyed. Last year, the United States and much of the Caribbean experienced the worst hurricane since weather records began: Irma. As the surface temperature of the sea rises continuously due to global warming, hurricanes can absorb more energy before they hit land. Cyclones are not more likely to occur, but due to climate change they are much stronger and destructive.

More climate-friendly solar energy with VoltStorage.

With our climate-friendly energy storage systems, households with solar systems can store and use surplus solar energy around the clock. This way you can rely on self-produced solar energy even when the sun is not currently shining – for example in the evening and night hours or on cloudy days.

With the combo of photovoltaic and storage system, you become more independent of the European electricity market, which obtains a large portion of its electricity from gas, coal and oil-fired power plants that emit greenhouse gases. With a VoltStorage battery system you can save up to 800 kg of greenhouse gas emissions per year and thus make an important contribution to mitigating climate change.
