THURINGIAN RESEARCH PROJECT „ZO.RRO“ (ZERO CARBON CROSS ENERGY SYSTEM)
100% CO2-free energy supply of the future
The joint project Zero Carbon Cross Energy System investigates the transformation of the energy system using the example of Thuringia. After completion of a successful first conception phase, the ZO.RRO II state project under the leadership of the Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences, supported by the joint partner Thüringer Erneuerbare Energien Netzwerk (ThEEN) e.V. (Thuringian Renewable Energy Network), received the funding decision of the Thuringian Ministry for the Environment, Energy and Nature Conservation (TMUEN) for approximately 2 million euros on May 23, 2022.
This enables us to develop and implement lighthouse projects in the form of demonstrators together with practice partners by the end of 2024. The aim is to build as quickly as possible on the analyses carried out in ZO.RRO I and to carry out detailed measurements. Research in the ZO.RRO II state project is currently starting using three tools (see graphic).
Our goal: reduce CO2 emissions, secure supply & prove the CO2 footprint of participating companies. Within the project, the Thuringian Renewable Energy Network (ThEEN) e.V. additionally acts as a communication office and brings partners as well as interested multipliers and companies together through various event formats and communication channels.
