The Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI analyzes the origins and impacts of innovations. We research the short- and long-term developments of innovation processes and the impacts of new technologies and services on society. On this basis, we are able to provide our clients from industry, politics and science with recommendations for action and perspectives for key decisions. Our expertise is founded on our scientific competence as well as an interdisciplinary and systemic research approach.
A total of 14 innovative and sustainable projects in five categories have been nominated for the German Innovation Prize for Climate and the Environment (IKU). The Federation of German Industry e.V (BDI) and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Buildings and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) will award the German Innovation Prize for Climate and the Environment (IKU) for the fifth time on 20 January 2016.
Global markets, joint action, local solutions and different ways of dealing with crises and challenges: The European Research Area can develop into different directions; the project VERA reveals four possible futures. Under the leadership of the Fraunhofer ISI ten research institutions developed scenarios which show what this research area could look like.
In a new study, the Fraunhofer ISI has forecast the development of final consumption in Germany for the period from 2016 to 2020. The study also analyzed the surcharges set in the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) to refinance the expansion of renewable energies. The key finding is that final consumption will drop to about 460 terawatt hours (TWh) by 2016. As a result, the EEG surcharge increases to 6.354 cent per kilowatt hour for 2016.
