The Fichtner Group is a strong engineering and consultancy partner for pioneering energy projects, both on a national and an international level. Initiated by Germany in June 2011 and since then followed by several international agreements reached at meetings such as the 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP21), the global energy transition is well on its way. With infrastructural CO2 reduction as its core theme, post combustion technology is aimed at largely replacing fossil energy by the mid-century. In other words, technology-based methods using renewables such as photovoltaics, wind energy, hydropower and biomass are soon to replace resource-based energy systems that rely on dwindling fossil sources like coal, gas and oil.
