energy sources provide chances for companies which means that worldwide
investments are increasing. The Business Unit Renewable Energies
evaluates the contribution of renewable energies to climate protection;
security of supply as well as competitiveness, draws up scenarios for future
development and studies the design of energy policy instruments. Coordinator of
the Business Unit is Prof. Dr. Mario Ragwitz.
Designing energy policy to be sustainable is an essential part of the comprehensive transformation of energy systems as pursued in Germany’s Energiewende and also in Europe and worldwide by setting medium- and long-term energy and climate targets. The Business Unit Energy Policy is concerned with designing and evaluating energy policy strategies and instruments, monitoring energy policy targets and the impacts of energy policy instruments on growth and employment as well as the competitiveness and innovative strength of the economy. Coordinator of the Business Unit is Dr. Barbara Schlomann.
Climate change affects every area
of society in the long term. Climate policy is therefore becoming increasingly intermeshed
with other policy fields. The topics of the Business Unit Climate Policy
include shaping the international climate regime and climate policy instruments
and their impacts on the environment, the economy and society. Coordinator of the Business Unit is Dr. Vicki Duscha.
Integrating increasing amounts of fluctuating
electricity from renewable energy sources poses growing challenges for markets
and infrastructures. Analyzing and developing strategies for policy-makers and enterprises
in the electricity sector is a crucial task for the Business Unit Electricity Markets and Infrastructures. Coordinator of the Business Unit is Dr. Frank Sensfuß.
