Air Date "Under High Voltage - How safe are our power grids?" on March 31, 2022 at 8:15 p.m. on 3sat

We are pleased to invite you to the first broadcast of our new science film "Unter Hochspannung – Wie sicher sind unsere Stromnetze?" (ZDF/3sat) on March 31, 2022 at 8:15 p.m. on 3sat.

Electricity moves the world. Uninterruptible power supply and grid stability are technically complex. The energy transition requires a new infrastructure. Does this come in time?

With his new film, the author Dietmar Klumpp explains, among other things, the technical basics that are necessary to ensure that electricity is available everywhere and at all times, and thus gets to the bottom of one of the important topics of our time.

We hope you enjoy watching!

After the first broadcast, the film will be available in the 3sat media library:
