Environmental responsibility

Acting responsibly towards our neighbours and the environment is key in our development approach. Therefore, keeping the impact of Dils-Energie to a minimum is the main criterion when we design the power plant and select the best available technology.

Natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel producing considerably less emissions during generation than other fossil-fuelled generation types. The combined-cycle technology maximises the output of electricity achieved for each unit of natural gas.

The ability to start up and shut down quickly makes CCGTs highly flexible. Flexibility has become an important feature within modern power generation where the share of renewable energy sources in the energy mix is increasing ever more. However, energy from renewables is only available intermittently which means that supply gaps need to be backed up and balanced out by conventional, reliable power generation. For this reason, state-of-the-art CCGT technology poses the ideal interim solution for the transition to CO2-free power generation.
