Electricity is one of the most important forms of energy.
Energy is a key factor in human development and has been a guarantee of the quality of life throughout history. One of the most important forms of energy is electricity. Around the world, electricity consumption increases in line with the level and speed of socioeconomic development.
The available sources of primary energy used to produce electricity are running out or have already largely been used up. It therefore makes sense to exploit all available sources.
The environmental requirements in electricity production from conventional thermal power plants are becoming even more demanding. Air pollution is becoming a global problem.
The reliability of the electricity supply is also becoming an increasingly serious issue for national economies. Electricity cannot be imported in unlimited quantities and therefore a high degree independence in the energy supply is vital.
