Electricity Distribution Network 2.0 - E-mobility & Flexible Tariffs

Open response to the invitation of the German Green parliamentary group to the digital event “Electricity Distribution Network 2.0 - E-mobility & Flexible Tariffs” on September 22, 2020.

  Open answer


Good day,

we would like to present our project “GEMINI next Generation” at your event. Since March 2008, we have been propagating the demand-oriented grid feed-in of solar power through direct intermediate storage in batteries.

Unfortunately, in the 1/8th century since this demand was propagated, frustratingly little has happened. Prices for electricity storage units that are customary in Germany are uneconomical for a demand-oriented grid feed-in, the currently available technology is not even suitable for demand-oriented grid feed-in.

  Affordable living - affordable energy transition


Is it possible to offer 24 kW peak photovoltaic, 40 kWh electricity storage, 1000 kWh low temperature heat storage, 66 m² living space for 90.000 EUR self pick-up price? Self pick-up means, the customer builds up house segments in our future workshop and transports them with a special car trailer to his building ground. We want to completely redefine what a house must be able to do and what it is allowed to cost.

As early as October 2024, the EEG feed-in tariff for new 10 to 40 kW systems will be only 4.3 cents per kWh. We are therefore preparing our homes in the best possible way for a future energy market with dynamic tariffs and the charging of electric cars for own consumption.

In the course of the project work we have established cooperation with an inverter company that, based on our explanations, is working on its inexpensive on/off hybrid inverters to improve them by the possibility of feeding into the grid as demanded.

We are about to order the technology for this as a first practical demonstration.

GEMINI next Generation - energy + food + living comfort GEMINI next Generation - energy + food + living comfort
What can housing cost? Where can you build? How much Energy should a house produce? How much building material is needed? GEMINI n.G. is looking for completely new answers to these questions.


Prehistory of the GEMINI next Generation project
It started in autumn 1991 with the GEMINI habitable solar power plant, 2011 with the initiative Solar Building Land and 2018 with GEMINI 66 - we build our house ourselves.


Where can and should GEMINI next Generation be built? Where can and should GEMINI next Generation be built?
Using existing land better and building where conventional houses cannot or are not allowed is an important objective of the GEMINI next Generation project.


How much energy should a house generate?
As much as possible! Because we need to get out of oil, coal, biofuel, natural gas and uranium. Our houses should contribute as much as possible.

A house must also be able to produce food
What do you get from the electricity surplus if you don't have anything to eat? The GEMINI next Generation project is hereby supplemented by a glasshouse with Vertical Farming Aeroponic.

A green venture capitalist has invested in the project. Now it's a matter of proving the concept. The first devices for it are being shipped at the factory right now.
