The success of the energy system transformation is also a question of the interaction of the different parts and sectors of the energy system. The so-called sector coupling, i.e. the interlocking of electricity, heat and mobility, plays a special role here. Only by means of sector coupling can renewable energies be optimally used and integrated.

At our WEC Austria workshop we will present practical examples and show how sector coupling is already taking shape. Get an overview of the status quo and discuss further developments with us.
