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.
In the project GRETCHEN the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI investigates among others the impact regulatory and energy policy frame work conditions in Germany have on the development and diffusion of renewable energy technologies in industrial enterprises.
For the research project "Molecular Sorting" seven Fraunhofer Institutes investigated how recycling processes, down to the molecular level, can help to improve resource efficiency in the future. The Fraunhofer ISI has outlined three scenarios for the project which are based on different developments in the field of resource efficiency and show companies the potentials, opportunities and risks of future recycling technologies.
A current study by the Fraunhofer ISI deals with the revenues and profits that can be made by photovoltaic and onshore installations in Germany. The study shows that photovoltaic installations generated significantly higher profits than onshore installations until 2012 although they produced less electricity overall.
